Torrance has MANY great rental properties & the schools are great. But the rent can run a bit high because of that. We lived in a 2 bdrm condo that ran about $1600/mo. We now live on the Torrance/Lomita border & pay $1725 for a 3 bdrm, 2 1/4 ba, attached garage, large patio, and hook-ups. We love this area, we know all of our neighbors, it is small hometown living with big city amenities only minutes away. El Segundo is great too. It has the same appeal with the small hometown living.
