Rent to Own Homes in Fontana, CA

Sunny, dry and wide open, Fontana is a growing city located in San Bernardino County in Southern California. Founded in 1913, it started out as an industrial district filled with steel mills and truckers. Today, there are still plenty of truckers, but there is also a burgeoning housing market and serious contingency of families and young adults. The median age is a youthful 28, which means there are plenty of kids around to enjoy numerous amenities, like the Auto Club Speedway and the Lewis Library, which is one of the largest libraries in the San Bernardino system. There's also an impressive healthcare industry here, with the Kaiser Permanente-Fontana Hospital leading the way. Fontana is undeniably an enticing place to live, especially with its relatively affordable home costs.

Fontana, CA is a great place for affordable rent-to-own homes! With a median household income of over $75,681 and a median rent of $1,368, the Fontana, CA rent-to-own market is more affordable than the traditional housing market which has shown tremendous growth across the U.S. and with it, aggressive competition for home purchases. With the current housing shortage trend it can make it harder to become a homeowner, including in Fontana, CA. This means higher than average down payments for homes and higher qualification standards for conventional home loans. With a rent-to-own property, tenants are also buyers. You can live in the house for a set amount of time before you purchase it, meaning that you get to know the house, your neighbors, and your community before making the final purchase. This enables you and your family to make the right choice based on both information and experience. Rent-to-own is also a great alternative way to get into a home if you have bad credit or don't have enough saved for a down payment.

Top Reasons to Live in Fontana CA

Housing Statistics Many areas of Southern California are prohibitively expensive, but Fontana enjoys a much lower cost of living than many other areas near or in Los Angeles or Orange County. The average price for a Fontana home was $216,268 between the months of January and March in 2013, with the median price coming in around $218,166 for the same time period. The vacancy rate runs about average for the nation, maybe a bit lower, at 6.7%. Of the occupied homes in Fontana, 63,2% are owned properties and 33.1% are rented properties. That means there is a healthy abundance of homeowners. For those who cannot yet afford a home but don't wish to waste money renting, rent to own houses make a great choice. A total of 249 homes were sold in that same January to March time period, in part due to the two percent population growth since 2010. The annual residential turnover rate is a relatively low 18% since most people who move here come to stay and put down roots. Though some believe that the educational system needs improvement, it's a fairly safe area that is experiencing excellent growth.

Tourist Attractions Nestled into the hillside of Mount Jurupa is the Mary Vagle Nature Center, one of the most popular places of interest for both residents and visitors to Fontana. It has many exhibits, a pond, a reptile viewing center and three miles of hiking trails for active guests. The Auto Club Speedway attracts patrons from all over the Inland Empire and beyond. The racetrack hosts NASCAR events, and it's built on the site of the old Kaiser Steel Mill.

Local Shopping There are plenty of strip malls in Fontana, but the Bel-Air Swap Meet is something a bit different than the average retail center. It's filled with locals selling priceless antiques alongside charming tchotchkes and homemade artisan goods. It's open every weekend plus Wednesdays. For more traditional shopping, the Palm Court at Empire Center is a great option, as is Fontana Village Shopping Center. For the greatest variety and best deals, however, the Ontario Mills Outlet Mall is just across the I-15 in Ontario.
