Los Angeles was originally named "El Pueblo de la Reyna de Los Angeles," which translates to The Town of the Queen of Angels, when it was founded by a group of 44 men, women, and children on September 4, 1781. L.A., or "La La Land," as it is fondly referred to, was captured by the United States during the Mexican War of 1846 and was incorporated as a U.S. city on April 4, 1850. The City of Angels is no longer a small Spanish colony. It currently boasts a population of nearly four million residents, making it the second-most populous city in the United States.

Average year-round temperatures range between 48° and 85°, with warm weather from May through the middle of October. There is plenty of room for both current residents and newcomers in the city.

Los Angeles, CA is a great place for affordable rent-to-own homes! With a median household income of over $65,290 and a median rent of $1,523, the Los Angeles, 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 Los Angeles, 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.
