If you’re a baseball fan, or a concert fan, or a Vegas fan or a football fan, you might have come across a relatively quiet secret out in the Inland Empire in Southern California- Rancho Cucamonga. You might have seen it at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains on the way to Las Vegas from coastal communities, or on the way to the Glen Helen Pavilion, depending on your origination. You might have seen it swinging up to the Rose Bowl, or on the way to some local snowboarding at Mountain High.
You weren’t alone. In fact, in the past 10 years, the City has seen a near 40% residential population growth. This has spurred its share of the residential construction boom that has initially led to affordable and spacious homes, compared to coastal communities. And the tough economy has now made many of those homes even more affordable. So you have more spacious homes at more affordable prices-a boom for buyers and renters.
That’s the larger benefit for many of those new 50,000 residents-there are thousands of these affordable and spacious Rancho Cucamonga homes for rent now. So renters can get homes of which they wouldn’t dream in coastal communities.
I’m emphasizing Rancho Cucamonga because it just seems like a good place-well situated geographically, economically, professionally. But it’s not just me thinking it… Rancho Cucamonga was recently voted one of the top 50 cities in which to live! That’s pretty impressive for a city that for years hadn’t had more than a joke made for it. Now they’re making awards for it.
But I’m also recognizing that people might not want to commit to immersing themselves long-term there. And this is why those Rancho Cucamonga homes for rent become part of the enticing opportunities. If you don’t want to brave the real estate market, of the 56,000 houses, 30% of them are Rancho Cucamonga homes for rent. That’s a big opportunity to get familiar with a dynamic and growing city.
