Administrator answers:

In the metropolitan area of Los Angeles/Long Beach you might rent a room for about $500.00 to %750.00 per month. Renting an apartment such as a studio would be around $800.00 and above depending on the area in which you would be located.

On Venice Beach or other beach areas the rent for a studio could be in excess of $1,000 and you would be required to pay utilities.

The area you quoted Riverside and surrounding area is about a 30-454 minute drive from the Los Angeles area. The prices quoted might be ok for that area, though they appear to be a little low even for the Riverside area.

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.


Donna asks…

Where can I find a good and cheap weekly rate motel for families in the N. Los Angeles or Santa Clarita area?

We are looking for a good and cheap weekly rate motel in the North Los Angeles, preferably Santa Clarita or Burbank areas. We will have our children with us so an area with decent schools is preferable. We need an area that is willing to let children who live in a motel go to a school without having to show a utility bill since we will be living in a motel until we get an apartment.
Thank you.

Administrator answers:

Obviousman gave good advice on LOS ANGELES, but i have advice for you on RIVERSIDE:

riverside is approximately 50-60 miles east of los angeles.

It is extremely smoggy in riverside. When you’re driving up to riverside on the 91 freeway, you can see the brown “smog belt” all above the city. It’s makes you feel gross during those hot summer days (and riverside gets very hot), but it’s manageable.

Riverside has the university of california, riverside, which is right next to the 91/60 freeway. It’s a good school, but basically, if you couldn’t get into any other uc school, you go there.

Riverside has the Mission Inn, which is one of the nicest hotels in the riverside/san bernardino area. Presidents stay there if for some reason, they are in the inland empire. The mission inn is really cool for the winter months, because they decorate the mission inn with christmas lights, and set up an outdoor skating rink. It sounds kind of boring, but really, it attracts a lot of people, and it’s a fun and free/cheap thing to check out.

The inland empire in general is pretty inexpensive. One bedrooms go from 700-900. The southern west part of riverside (below the 215/91 fwyand west of the 60 fwy), in my opinion, is the nicest. Those neighborhoods are kind of up on a hill, so you can find a place that has a really nice view of the area. Plus, a lot of those places are pretty new (10 years old or less), so you can imagine that the amenities in a complex are pretty up to date (maybe marble counters, new appliances, etc).

I don’t know how old you are, or how you are doing financially, but if you are in a position to do so, i would recommend buying or renting a house. You can rent a nice 3 bedroom house in riverside for about 1500-1700 a month. Or, as prices have plummeted, you could easily find a house around $150,000.

Riverside is one of the biggest cities of the inland empire, so don’t worry, there are PLENTY of things to do there. Plus, riverside county borders orange county and san diego county, so you can basically just take the 91 to the 55, and be at the ocean in 45 minutes.

Some other good cities near riverside include:

–corona. Basically EVERYTHING in corona is brand new. Lovely new houses everywhere, and a lot of new shopping complexes all over the place. More expensive than riverside, but nicer, if you’re looking for a more residential area.
–moreno valley. It is just south east of riverside, and you can find lower prices for rent there, but there has been a serious growth of stores and shopping plazas. It’s a nice town, but still very smoggy.

Charles asks…

Where’s the best place in Los Angeles to get cheap furniture that will be assembled for you?

I am looking to furnish my studio apartment downtown with a small table, 2 chairs for that table, TV stand, night stand, office desk, office chair, and bed headboard for less than $2,250.

I don’t want to get crappy furniture–ruling out Ikea, Walmart, Target, et cetera–and I don’t want to have to put it together myself (meaning I want it delivered and assembled for between $0-100).

Since I do not live in LA yet, I would like to find somewhere with an online catalogue and pricing guide available.

Suggestions are appreciated.

Administrator answers:

We buy all our new furniture at Thomas Furniture. It’s off of San Fernando road between Glendale and Griffith Park (next door to a large Levitz). They have great prices and high-quality merchandise. I don’t think they have an on-line catalog :( , but if you visit the store they have a huge catalog selection and samples to look through. When we go there we pick out what we want from the catalog and they deliver it (fully assembled) about a week later. Even after we shop around we always come back to this store because they always have the best prices and quality. Good luck!
