Where Can I Find Cheap Apartments For Rent?

I’ve tried all the big websites,,,, but they all seem to only have the big name apartments on there which are all expensive. I’m looking in the area of Burbank, CA and I just need something like an efficiency but one that’s under 700. So if you know any websites or apartments please let me know :) :) Thanks.
Ok I see what you guys mean, basically you have to sacrifice one or the other. Well thank you for answering the question :) I know how annoying it can get when people ask questions that you assume they should already know haha. Thanks:)

Administrator answers:

Generally it’s quite difficult to find a single in an ok area under $900, or a one bedroom under $1200. Usually rooms to rent in homes cost the same as singles and come with a lot of problems and rules.

While some of the buildings listed online are the expensive fancy buildings, not all of them are. Often the big buildings have very small apartments so they can rent them at lower prices compared to other similar buildings with larger units. Or they have singles, which can go for $200 – $300 less than a one bedroom. So the apartments you’re seeing on the low end are likely really on the low end for the area.

The best thing to do is to cruise the neighborhoods and look for signs if you’re not finding any listings. It isn’t necessary for many landlords to run ads for the older smaller buildings, usually they’ll find tenants through neighbors or their current tenants, so they just put up signs in the yard. But it’s going to be really really tough to find something under $700. Maybe in the valley (like Van Nuys, North Hollywood) you could find a single for $700, but even that would take a lot of looking.

It’s hard finding a single in a nice older (so usually cheaper) building, because mostly those type of buildings didn’t have singles, they have one bedrooms. The kinda icky old large buildings usually in the downtown areas did have singles, but a lot of those were torn down and businesses were built.

Did you try craigslist? Http:// Be careful though, lots of scams.

Good luck!

Steven asks…

What US cities have the cheapest rent for apartments?

I’m in NYC and I need to move out of my mom’s house. I’m getting old (I’m 29). But I don’t foresee myself paying any exorbitant amount of rent here in the big apple, so I think I must relocate to another city.

Does anyone know of a fairly safe city in the US where the rent is cheap? Do you have any suggestions? Thanks so much in advance.

Administrator answers:

Cheapest housing in the US, of any large city, is in Indianapolis, so the rents are probably the lowest there too.

But Indy sort of sucks. Other option might be Columbus Ohio (home of OSU), far more cultural, yet still cheap.
