Upland

Upland is in San Bernardino County, California. The city was incorporated on May 15, 1906, after previously being named North Ontario. Upland is located at the foot of the highest part of the San Gabriel Mountains. The city is part of the Inland Empire, a metropolitan area situated directly east of the Los Angeles metropolitan area.

Single-family homes are the most common housing type in Upland, accounting for 54.93% of the city’s housing units. Other types of housing prevalent in Upland include large apartment complexes or high-rise apartments (23.61%), duplexes, homes converted to apartments or other small apartment buildings (11.51%), and a few row houses and other attached homes (6.93%).

Upland has that “Brady Bunch” look because many of the neighborhoods were built in the 1960s and 1970s.

The housing market is strong in Upland. Despite the nationwide downturn in the housing market, Upland real estate remained solid and appreciated faster than many Southern California communities during the recovery.
