Affordable Housing in Orange County

As the cost of living grows for Orange County renters, looking for an affordable apartment is exciting, but it can also be stressful. The general rule of thumb is to spend no more than 33% of your income on rent based on your monthly take-home pay. However, if you have a lot of other expenses such as car loans, child care, or student loan debt, you may need to look for a more affordable apartment. When searching, make sure you find out if utilities such as internet, cable, and water are going to cost you by asking the leasing consultant for an estimate.

For those looking for low cost, or just more affordable housing, Irvine Company strives to provide a wide variety of housing at various price points, to make it possible for a full spectrum of individuals and families to enjoy living in Orange County.
