    Renter's guide to Orange, CA

    Located in Orange County, California, the city of Orange is a suburb of Los Angeles. Known for its high concentration of historic buildings in the old town and a sublime location, Orange is a mid-sized city that enjoys a small town vibe. It ranks as the 104th best city in America for young professionals, and the 23rd healthiest city in America. Low crime rates and good school systems also make it popular with families.

    Orange has a population of 140,289 and spreads across almost 26 sq. miles. In terms of area, it’s about the same as neighboring Santa Ana, but has less than half the population, meaning it’s not as crowded as other nearby cities. Compared to LA proper, it’s almost 27 times smaller by population and 18 times smaller by area.

    Located around 30 miles southeast of downtown LA, Orange enjoys good transport links in all directions. The Santa Ana Freeway (Interstate 5) can be taken to downtown within 40 minutes in light traffic, though commute times can be far longer. San Diego is around 90 miles south of Orange and can be reached by taking the same freeway south.

    Orange enjoys a pleasantly warm and dry climate throughout much of the year, though winters do generally see some rain. The hottest month is typically August, with highs of around 84°F, while December is typically the coldest month, with lows of around 46°F. January sees the wettest weather, with around 3.2 inches of rainfall. However, with annual precipitation levels of around 15 inches, rain is seldom an issue. Proximity to the coast ensures slightly cooler temperatures compared to more inland areas of southern California.

    Tips for renting in Orange, CA

    If you’re considering a move to Orange, you may have heard that the cost of living can be high. Indeed, southern California rates as almost twice as expensive as the national average. The cost of renting is higher than other areas in the U.S., but it’s not such a steep increase compared to the cost of buying a home. Other essentials — groceries, healthcare, etc. — aren’t much more expensive than the rest of the country, however.

    If you’re worried about scorching heat, Orange is typically slightly cooler than more inland areas of the county. It’s still worth seeking out an apartment with AC, but it’s not as essential as in other parts of southern California. AC in your car, however, is a must, and with long commute times, it’s worth seeking employment opportunities that are closer to home if you want to avoid the congestion.

    Things for renting

    Living in Orange, CA

    Life in Orange offers diversity, very low crime rates, and plenty of things to do. The location is superb, with proximity to the coast, mountains, state parks and reserves, as well as the big city.

    The city offers a mix of the friendliness of a close-knit small-town community, the vibrancy of a college town, and the bustle of larger city. At the same time, the historic center provides atmosphere seldom found in this part of the country.

    Despite so many positives, there are some negative points that are worth pointing out. Commuting outside of town during rush hours can be an extremely arduous and time-consuming task. The metrolink station is the second busiest in the state, as it serves as a transfer stop between Orange County and IEOC lines. The roads are equally busy, with the section of the Santa Ana Freeway (Interstate 5) just outside of Orange among the busiest in the state — frequently referred to as the ‘Orange Crush’.
