Mar Vista lists a nice combination of rental properties between the number of condominiums placed on the market as rentals, apartment buildings and single-family homes. This very diverse neighborhood is a family friendly place to live with its combination of tree-lined streets, historically designated properties and highly rated schools. Mar Vista is unique within Los Angeles for being an affordable location that is really only a few miles from both the beach and downtown L.A.
One of the distinct advantages to renting a home is time that can be saved on maintenance and upkeep. Use that time wisely and enjoy the restaurants and activities in Mar Vista. In keeping with the community’s throwback nostalgia, dust off the bowling shoes and head over to the classic AMF Mar Vista Lanes or the hip Bowlero to bowl a few frames. Nightlife enthusiasts may like to spend the evening dancing at New Hurt. There is always time for food and Mar Vista has some great local eateries. Check out Ronnie’s Diner, Santuoko for the best ramen in Los Angeles to local favorite Louie’s for southern cooking.
The rental market in Mar Vista is as varied as the community itself. Many of the buildings here are pet friendly, but make sure to verify the pet policies before signing a lease. Properties in Mar Vista are listed as both furnished and unfurnished rentals, making them attractive to people who are coming to LA on a short term basis as well as for a long term situation. An updated, two-bedroom bungalow that is within a short bike ride to the Farmer’s Market would generally rent $3,000 to $3,500 per month. In the higher price range, a mid-century modern home built by a renowned architect that features upgraded appliances would typically be found for $9,000 to $10,000 per month. Rents are actually slightly lower in Mar Vista than in many other neighborhoods in Westside. While the rental market is somewhat competitive it is possibly to easily find a great lease in a short period of time.
Apartment living is another option for living in Mar Vista. Multi-family buildings and smaller condominiums typically offer single and studio bedroom units for approximately $1,000 to $3,000 per month. Luxury buildings with two to three bedroom apartments and services like fitness centers and swimming pools can range from $1,200 to $3,000.
Mar Vista offers a unique rental option for those who are looking to live in this quiet community, but appreciate a smaller space. There are opportunities to rent guest homes, lofts, bedrooms, bachelor apartments or suites.
