Hello, I recently made a post here regarding moving to long beach, however my circumstances have changed and I will be moving in the area of Fullerton.

This will be a decent halfway point between the pomona area and long beach.

From what I have read and heard, staying away from Anaheim is a wise move.

My criteria is:

Safe neighborhood for myself and my girlfriend
At least some close by places to eat etc
1 bed/1 bath
Cat friendly
Under 1200

Pluses: gated parking
decent management


Also, anything to look out for regarding this move that I haven't listed?


Thank you.

All 3 cities are fairly safe.. with the exception of maybe a few neighborhoods, you can't go wrong with any of the 3 cities (assuming you can find a 1br for $1200/mo or less.) Placentia might be the cheaper of the 3.. stay away from the area near CSU Fullerton.. rents are gonna be overpriced near college campuses. Some areas near Downtown Fullerton and Downtown Brea have some transients but they're generally harmless anyways.

There are some apartments around Yorba Linda Blvd and Placentia Ave that seem to fit your criteria, but I'm not sure how much they rent for. That area is pretty safe, with a few car break ins hear and there.

If you are looking in Fullerton, the best areas are going to be north of Commonwealth Avenue, and even better if you can get north of Chapman. Placentia is mostly pretty good, with the exception of a few areas near Chapman and Orangethorpe near the 57. Almost all of Brea is nice.

All 3 cities are very nice and safe. Lots of established parts and plenty of newer parts too. Great place to live regardless of age. Have fun!

The area between Lemon and Raymond south of Commonwealth but north of the railroad track should fill the bill of the OP. I lived there for a number of years and paid well under the OP's stated price for a two-bedroom (with a roomie). Not always very pretty but generally safe, as well as being close (walking distance) to downtown. Many apartment buildings in the area, older but refurbished and some locally owned.
