Donald asks…

Where to find cheap apartments for rent?

Turned 18, ready to move out of my house and into an apartment with a friend of mine. We live in the GTA, and are wondering where we could find a cheap apartment to rent out? Preferably in Toronto or just outside it

Administrator answers:

Try Craigslist and just the newspaper. You can also ask a real estate agent – its free since they are paid by the landlord.

Maria asks…

What are the cheapest apartments to rent in Fredericksburg, VA?

I’m transferring to the University of Mary Washington for the Spring Semester of 2013 and was researching different apartments to possibly rent for that semester, but everything I’ve found is really expensive and I was looking to get some help from people that live in the area that might know of places that are relatively inexpensive and could fit into a college student’s budget.

Administrator answers:

I don’t know specifically of any complexes there that are cheap, but we have an apartment search that has a few hundred listings in Fredericksburg, VA. We crawl thousands of apartment searches and bring the listings into our site, so we should have the cheapest apartments available for you. I attached a link to the site below. Other good sites to check out would be ApartmentFinder.com, Hotpads.com, ApartmentGuide.com, ForRent.com, Move.com.

George asks…

Where Can I Find Cheap Apartments For Rent?

I’ve tried all the big websites, apartments.com, rent.com, mynewplace.com, 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://losangeles.craigslist.org/apa/ Be careful though, lots of scams.

Good luck!

Administrator answers:

To everyone looking to stay in Australia, I would recommend these 2 sites:
www.domain.com.au: when you are looking to rent or share an apartment. This is the biggest one in Australia or at least in NSW.
Http://www.justcheaphotel.com all sorts of hotels, motels and apartments. Best site to compare and find cheapest hotel deal.
