Sandra asks…

Can I find cheap rental apartments in Los Angeles below $300?

I’m planning on moving to LA in couple of years time and I was just wondering if I could find an apartment/house below $400/$300?
Do you pay rent monthly or weekly there?
Doesn’t have to be all fancy, just somewhere safe & quite….

Administrator answers:

You are gonna be hard pressed to find an apartment in the Los Angeles/Long Beach area for that amount of money each month.

Web sites are a good place to find an apartment or house to rent, if you want to go through the entire list to find one in your state and then city.

The best place to look for places to rent is to go to the yellow pages of your telephone book, look under property managers.

These individuals list properties for rent in certain areas, so make sure you select the areas in which you wish to rent.

Call several of the property managers listed there, tell them you want a list of properties that they have for rent. Some will fax, email or mail the list of local places to rent along with the address, number of bedrooms and bath rooms, amenities available, such as washer and dryers or gyms, the monthly rental of the unit. Most will include a rental application. These list will include the monthly rental required, if a lease or month to month agreement will be signed. They will also indicate if they will accept Section 8 vouchers. They will also indicate it they have disabled access, allow pets and if so the type allowed.

They might indicate a web site that you might visit to get their list of places to rent. It does not cost to get a rental list from a reputable property manager.

Some will require you to stop by their office and pick up the list. A lot of them post their list outside so the list are available 24/7 365.

Make sure you don’t fall for the scams and purchase a list as 70%-80% of these list are composed of free list they have compiled. They are not the property managers of any property in most instances.

You might also google Property managers in whatever city or community you want to live in and see what comes up. Again do not pay for this information as it is free from reliable property managers.

I hope this has been of some benefit to you, good luck.

Administrator answers:

No. Maybe a week. Nothing like that exists for the month. Any landlord renting that low will have to pay out of their own pockets for you to live there.

James asks…

Does anyone know any furnished temporary apartments in Los Angeles like Oakwood but cheaper?

And please don’t say research it..
If you know any websites list away thanks.

Administrator answers:

There is a website called Furnished Apartments – Los Angeles.
I don’t know how much they charge.


I know Oakwood is expensive (I work in HR and have used them for employee relocations before).
Oakwood also supplies apartments without the Oakwood name on them. You might contact them to see if they can work within your budget.

You should be more specific about location. Los Angeles is kind of big.

Administrator answers:

A friend of mine rents out a room in a family’s house in culver city for $600, so i don’t think it’s impossible for you to find a place to live in la for 700 dollars a month. It WILL, however, be difficult to find your own one bedroom apartment (in a nice part of town) for such a small amount. If you want to live in a better part of la, then for that rent, expect to share an apartment with more people than there are rooms.

Look at for apartments and put your max rent at $700. Los angeles is huge, and you didn’t mention if you even have any clue of where in la you need to live… Obviously the crappy parts of town, you can probably get a 2 bedroom for that much, but i wouldn’t really suggest it. When your searching for apartments, do a little research on the areas as well.
