Celebration FL apartments?

are there studio apts in celebtration fl? I’ll be by myself and i cant afford a 1 bedroom, and i hear its really safe there and it’s close 2 disney. if there are any studios do you know the name of the apartment complex?thanks

Administrator answers:

The most affordable studios and 1 bedrooms are out by clermont, and winter gardens.

Or up off of 27 near Animal Kingdom. You can get a 1 bed room for around 430 – 500 a month there.

I hope this helps!

Maria asks…

San Jose California : can I afford it ?

I am considering moving to either san jose, or santa cruz, Ca. Are there many one bedroom or studio apts (preferably one bedroom) in the $600 to 650 /month range?

Administrator answers:

Sorry – I don’t think so. My 2 bedroom apt from a couple years back ( I know you’re looking for a 1 bdrm, just using this as a pt. Of reference )
was $1675 in an average neighborhood. Right now we are renting a 3 bedroom townhouse at $2300 a month and that is a pretty low price.

Donald asks…

Ocean View Apts In Ca?

Price is not an issue. I need a at least studio apartment with an ocean view that I can sign a 3-6 month lease that allow cats.

Anyone know any?

Administrator answers:

Sunset Realty handles all the choice rentals on San Diego’s beach areas….Pacific Beach, Mission Beach & Point Loma all have massive rental properties…Better get in before June ….Summer rates, And friendly lease terms dissapear quickly when summer arrives…Also check out “The Reader” (www.sdreader.com) a locals paper widely used by ocean dwellers and landlords…Cats are no problem at with most properties at the beach…Good Luck!

Robert asks…

Splitting heating system for 2 apartments?

we have a rental property with 2 apts on the 1st floor -a 3 bedroom & a studio. Right now they are both heated by one forced hot water by gas heating system. Both have separate thermostats.We would like to separate the two so tenants can pay their own utilities but are reluctant to incur the expense of installing a new boiler just for the studio. Are there any less expensive options?
A few years ago,a plumber had said that even a hot water heater would be sufficient to heat that small studio apt but I am not sure how that works or if that is a viable option.
Please advise. Thanks,

Administrator answers:

Electric resistant heaters (baseboards) are relatively inexpensive to install if you have the space in your electric service panel to add the circuit.

James asks…

reasonable apts in north hollywood?

I’m going to be moving to california to jump start a career, but I need a little help. I want to live by the studios, but at a good price. I’m even willing to live with a roommate. Could someone help me out?

Administrator answers:

North Hollywood has some nice areas and some bad areas. Also, North Hollywood is not adjacent to Hollywood like it sounds – it’s actually a couple towns over. Housing in the Valley towards Hollywood (NoHo, Studio City, Valley Village, etc) is probably going to be $600-800 for a bedroom, and $1200+ to live alone.

Your best bet is to check Craigslist for temp housing – losangeles.craigslist.org. Find a place for 2-3 months until you decide what area you want to be in, or meet some people you really want to live with.

I’m not sure if you’re an actor or trying to do a technical job, but getting a studio job is incredibly difficult. The major film/tv studios (WB, Paramount, Fox, etc) are all union and you generally have to have a LOT of experience here in town or some major connections to get those gigs. Plus, a lot of work is outsourced to other production companies (or boutique companies who do graphics, makeup, audio, etc). A lot of those companies are not in Hollywood (there’s a lot of sound in Burbank and the west side, for example)

If you’re an actor, I can pretty much guarantee that all productions on the lot are union (SAG/AFTRA). You may have better luck connecting with some indie studios/production companies to find work.

Also – when I first moved out here someone told me it takes 6 months just to make the connections to START to look for work. There’s a lot of truth in that – you really need a good nest egg before you move out here. I read not long ago that unemployment is over 25% (including seasonal unemployment) so it’s especially important to be prepared if you’re serious about staying out here. I’ve met a lot of talented people who have come and gone because they couldn’t afford to stay and do what they loved to do.
