Thomas asks…

Looking for a 1 Bedroom Apartment in the Ottawa Area.?

Im currently going to be attending carleton university but i can only seem to find either a one bedroom in a 3-4 bedroom house or sharing an apartment. i want a ONE bedroom apartment just for myself. does anyone know of any cheap ones in the ottawa area? preferrably under $600 i’m a female and am looking for this asap as i start university in september.

Administrator answers:

$600 is pretty low for a 1 bedroom. Student housing where people share a place are pretty cheap. Likewise dumps are pretty cheap. Nice places though tend to be expensive in Ottawa. I pay $2753/month for a 1 bedroom and when I was looking the cheapest I found that I considered nice was $1600 and it had no parking.

I did find this one though http://www.mls.ca/PropertyDetails.aspx?vd=&SearchURL=%3fMode%3d0%26Page%3d1%26vs%3dResidential%26ret%3d300%26sts%3d0-0%26beds%3d0-0%26baths%3d0-0%26aid%3d2996%252c3050%252c3094%252c3111%252c3130%252c3158%252c3209%26MapURL%3d%253fAreaID%253d2862%26mp%3d0-0-0%26mrt%3d0-0-4%26trt%3d3%26of%3d1%26ps%3d10%26o%3dA&Mode=0&PropertyID=6944023 it is $600 and they have a unit in the same building for $700. Unfortunately it is in Vanier which is not the best area and is also far from Carleton.

Everything else goes up to over $800 pretty fast but here is the rest of the MLS listings http://www.mls.ca/PropertyResults.aspx?Mode=0&Page=1&vs=Residential&ret=300&sts=0-0&beds=0-0&baths=0-0&aid=2996%2c3050%2c3094%2c3111%2c3130%2c3158%2c3209&MapURL=%3fAreaID%3d2862&mp=0-0-0&mrt=0-0-4&trt=3&of=1&ps=10&o=A

Linda asks…

how much money does it take to fully furnish a 1 bedroom apartment in the bay area (CA) ?

Spending the money moderately. not going wild but also not going the cheapest possible.

Administrator answers:

A s much as you want to spend . You can buy from aretailer or you can go to close out stores, 2nd hand stores , antiques stores and estate and house sales for great bargains . We furnished our entire house from estate sales and it is a 5 bedroom large home and we did for under 12,000.00 complete .

Nancy asks…

how much does a 1 bedroom apartment cost in san fransisco?

i want a cheap room but in a safe neighborhood within walking distance of interesting things

Administrator answers:

About 900 bucks a month. But remember you have to pay first months rent, last months rent and a security deposit (usually a months rent).

So in total move in costs for a one bedroom apt for 900/month is 2,100 dollars.

I’m carpeting about 600 sq ft of my home and have been looking for discount carpet also. The cheapest I’ve found so far was 89 cents per sq but it was a local store that carries discontinued or overstocked flooring and they didnt have enough of the same

Paul asks…

Should I move out or stay home ?

Okay, so I’m 21 years old and I work full time and I make about 43,000 dollars a year. I found a cheap 1 bedroom apartment for 1,100 dollars a month. I live home now basically for free. I only pay 300 dollars a month at home, but I hate living home and following my parents rules. Should I move out or stay home ?

Administrator answers:

Personally, I would move out because I would like to get out of my parents house as soon as possible. But then again, with the money that you are making I would try to bear with it so that I can get as much money as possible. With this economy you never know what could happen and when your going to need a amount of money.
