I will be perfectly honest with you. I work the San Fernando, Santa Clarita and Palmdale, Lancaster (Antelope Valley) areas. I live in the Palmdale area, have for years, have sold real estate here and have seen the market changes.
Okay, here is the truth...there are a lot of rentals in the area available for rent. However, there are a lot of people looking to rent as well. It really depends on the home itself, the location and the price. For example, I am working on renting out a 3 bedroom 1 bath home in East Palmdale for 1300. It comes with a pool, gardener and some water paid. The phone doesn't stop ringing.
However, be aware, many renters today are being put out of their homes for various reasons and therefore may have credit issues. HOwever, as some of my colleagues and I say, many people today have credit challenges. If you choose the right home, that makes the right sense for you, you should be fine.
Please let me know if I can answer any other questions for you. I will not solicit, but if you want help, I'm here.
