    May 29, 2008, 4:03 PM - How much is rent for a 1 bedroom apt in your area?? #1

    Hey,

    I am really interested in where the cheaper places to live are.

    Can you all please post what is the average rent for a 1 bedroom in your neck of the woods. Not the worst place, but not the best place.

    We are thinking of jumping ship to somewhere....

    Hmm probably average is about $400 a month here plus utilities

    Edit- $400 is the lower end of the scale. Looks like $500-$600 for average

    $900 - $1000 seems to be around average, with some of the nicer ones going higher.

    About 800 - 1200 here. Depends on where you go. Some areas of the SF bay area are higher, some lower. My friend pays about 1K a month, maybe a bit less for a 1 bedroom. He's about 2 blocks away from the PD but his area is still a bit dicey! Let me just say that I wouldn't want to leave my car there overnight!

    For a super nice apt in a still developing area I used to split rent and payed $400/mo.
    The apartment was two bed, two bath, with a kitchen and big living room and the complex had a pool. I took the smaller bedroom so I paid a little less. Total rent I think was $1200/mo.

    Then I have a friend who pays $550/mo for 1 bed, 1 bath, living room and kitchen. In a good, but not great, but not bad area.

    I hope that helps.

    Where are you thinking of moving? Possibly near your son in NC...??

    Where I'm staying at you can get a 1 bedroom with internet, cable, utilities, phone, and fully furnished for $840 a month. Nicest, safest complex in the city.

    Not to mention the 2 pools, gym, weight room, free ps3 for lease signing, and less than 5 minutes from everything downton.

    Yeah, I live in Southern California... 'cheap' is not a word I would use to describe rents... you dont really want to know what a 1BR goes for out here.

    In a nice area around here at least $550 for a single.

    As you get closer to milwaukee it starts dropping.

    I had friends near campus that split a double near the same price.


    Crappy areas tend to have the cheapest rent (duh)

    everywhere else just charges whatever they feel like.

    Definitely do your homework though. Nothing sucks more than moving into a place you turn out to hate a month later and being stuck there for the rest of the lease.

    Middle of No Where. Illinois, the horrible southern part to boot. My family has been in the buisness for about 10 years now, and some of the places that aren't theirs are absoutly horrible. Theirs are deffintly above the average, and have been noted to be cheaper than they should be to boot. Some of them I dislike, but they are all very nice either way. I think they have one thats a studio apt. that goes for about $250 or so, and for whatever reason people love it. But ya, $300 for a 1 bedroom apt, but the nicest ones, like the 3 bedroom ones go for much more. (I can't remember what utilitys come with what, I know some come with water and cable, but I don't think thats the norm for all of them. I'm not much into that part of the buisness.

    All kidding aside Debbie, your probably not going to find anything cheaper in California. it is very expensive to live here as you well know. I was thinking about moving out of state myself but after looking around, it's expensive no matter where you go unless your willing to live in a dump.

    So you can "set us up" LOL, the hubby and me??

    It would be much better if I know the owners.

    I just want to get out of So Cal too. What is the living like there? big city? small town??

    Not in NorCal either. SF Bay Area is even worse than San Diego, if that's possible.
