Moving to West Covina

There are many reasons you might want to live in West Covina. It's located in a thriving part of California: the San Gabriel Valley in Los Angeles County. The climate is sunny, dry, and comfortably warm, even in the depths of winter. And the good news for would-be renters is that West Covina has plenty of housing options, ranging from modern 1 bedroom apartments to spacious 4 bedroom houses.

Starting your search for a home in West Covina is exciting, but it can quickly become frustrating when the homes you like are snapped up by other tenants who have been more organized than you. Before you even begin looking at rentals, gather the documents and other things you will need to rent an apartment in West Covina. To spell it out, you are likely to need proof that you are employed, a reference from your previous landlord to show that you are a responsible tenant, and the first month's rent to put down as a deposit when you find the perfect place. If you have these things to hand, your chances of grabbing the apartment you want will be dramatically improved. If you show up without them, get used to disappointment.

Methodology - Recent Updates:

Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.

Methodology:

Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

Read more about our methodology here.

About Rent Reports:

Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
