    Renter's guide to Riverside, CA

    Part of the Greater Los Angeles area, Riverside offers great affordability and convenience, while still being very accessible to places like San Diego and Los Angeles.

    That makes it a great place for families, young professionals, or anyone else who wants big city amenities without big city hassles and prices. Forbes even ranked it the 8th coolest city in the US.

    Size-wise, Riverside is 98 square miles wide, which makes it roughly half the size of San Francisco and just 20% the size of Los Angeles.

    It's located about 60 miles from LA and 107 miles from San Diego, which makes day trips to either city an option for road trippers.

    Riverside features a semi-arid climate – summers are hot and dry, while winters are mild and rainy. With its distance from the coast, you don't get those nice ocean breezes you get in some of the other major cities in California.

    Average temperatures in the summer usually fall in the 90s, but often get into the 100s. Winters have average lows in the low 40s and average highs in the upper 60s.

    Tips for renting in Riverside, CA

    By now, you're either convinced Riverside is a great place for you – or you probably already stopped reading.

    But what about renters rights in Riverside? What should you know about tenant laws before going in?

    For starters, your landlord is not allowed to charge more than two times the rental price for a security deposit – unless the apartment is furnished. And they must return the deposit within 21 days after you move out.

    There's no limit to how and when a landlord can raise rent in California, but they're required to give you 30 days’ notice if the increase is within 10 percent and 60 days’ notice if it's more than 10 percent.

    Things for renting

    Living in Riverside, CA

    An easy way to examine the pros and cons of living in Riverside is to compare it to some of the nearby big cities, like Los Angeles and San Francisco.

    What Riverside lacks in big city amenities, culture, and nightlife, it makes up for with less crowds, less traffic (and better parking), and lower prices.

    In other words, it's close enough to the action, but far enough for you to enjoy a more affordable, laid back lifestyle.
