My family and I are moving out to the LA/LB area, and my goal is to find a 3BR single family home in a good school district (preK and Elemtary School) and family friendly community within a 30 minute commute to San Pedro for about $2600. Does anyone have any suggestions about where to look?

An apartment would be easy, but it is a pretty daunting task trying to a find house to rent out there. Does anyone know of a good rental broker or some other one stop shopping method to find a house to rent in the area? Craig's List has been pretty good, but everything else is scattered across dozens of websites.

Thank you for any assistance you can provide.

get the grunion gazette and you'll find rental options in Belmont Shore / Heights. The elementary schools are top notch in this area.

As NaplesRes stated, the Belmont Shore/Belmont Heights/Naples area of Long Beacfh are really nice.

The Palos Verdes Peninsula (Rancho PV, PV Estates, or Rolling Hills) may work out better for you though. Easier drive into San Pedro and the communities are intertwined more closely. Torrance and Redondo Beach are other options.

I would not send your kids to any public school in Torrance. As calipoppy said, try belmont shores/naples of long beach, or palos verdes. But avoid Torrance. Redondo Beach is just ok for kids in terms of school, but its not a bad city.

I would not send your children to Torrance schools. They have really gone down hill in recent years. I would try to get into the Palos Verdes school district. Both high schools rank within the top 200 in the nation. Ultimately, your children will feed into these schools from elementary schools. Redondo Beach is okay, but not great. I would avoid all public schools in San Pedro. Some of the schools in San Pedro, eg. White Point, Park Western, Belmont Shores, tout they are top notch, but when you compare these schools to PV, there is no comparison. Even if you have to buy just a townhouse, I would make the effort.
