City Guide
Whittier, California

Historic buildings, charming neighborhood parks, streets lined with old growth trees, and the old fashioned Craftsman and Spanish Colonial Revival homes make up Whittier. And, L.A. and Orange County are both nearby and accessible.

Renting Tips

Transportation. Whittier is a fine place for the carless nomad. Several bus routes operate within the city, provided by Foothill Transit, Montebello Bus Lines, Norwalk Transit, the Metro, and The Sunshine Shuttle. For you drivers out there, most of Whittier doesn't experience heavy traffic. The most congested areas will be along the San Gabriel Freeway and the Santa Ana Freeway.

Neighborhood Breakdown

Uptown Whittier. Uptown's home to numerous bars, clubs, restaurants, coffee shops, pizza parlors, and shopping. There is a great music, arts, and dance culture, with several events for dancers, as well as the popular Aloha Concert Series.

North Whittier. The north end is an eyeful, with the stunning beauty of high elevation wilderness, the creativity of high elevation golf courses, and the great views looking down on rolling hills that lead into the San Gabriel river to the west, and into the twinkling city lights to the south. Shopping and entertainment are nearby.

Friendly Hills. There is plenty to do around here, with a few dance studios: Dance Place, Sparks Dance Studio, and Alohi's Polynesian Dance. There is a bowling alley, a few parks, and plenty of dining options.

South Whittier. A neighborhood of numerous bars, and excellent food. It is always worth it for the hole-in-the-wall eats, the dive bars, and the diamond-in-the-rough night life that you can't find anywhere else. There are several sports bars. There is live music. There are dance parties. It's all within walking distance.

So, as you can see, this adorable town really has it all. It is an all-in-one home town, so come on over and enjoy the atmosphere.

January 2018 Whittier Rent Report

Welcome to the January 2018 Whittier Rent Report. Whittier rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Whittier rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Whittier rents increase sharply over the past month

Whittier rents have increased 0.8% over the past month, and are up sharply by 6.8% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Whittier stand at $1,400 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,800 for a two-bedroom. This is the second straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in October. Whittier's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 4.3%, as well as the national average of 2.8%.

Rents rising across the Los Angeles Metro

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Whittier, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the Los Angeles metro, all of them have seen prices rise. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

  • Long Beach has the least expensive rents in the Los Angeles metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,700; the city has also seen rents fall by 2.7% over the past month, the biggest drop in the metro.

As rents have increased sharply in Whittier, a few large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Compared to most large cities across the country, Whittier is less affordable for renters.

  • Rents increased significantly in other cities across the state, with California as a whole logging rent growth of 4.3% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 3.3% in San Diego, 2.7% in San Jose, and 0.5% in San Francisco.

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.


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.
