  • Cheapest...250 without utilities for one roommate. Cheapest place I've seen is 500 for a 2 bed 1 bath. Not bad.

    Most expensive, about 900 for everything. (But I've not looked at beach condos, only things in my college town)

    I live in SC

    It's hella cheap here if you have a job, no kids, a cheap car, and are only fending for yourself and maybe a dog or cat.

    Alas, I'm but a broke college student with 17 credit hours and a part time. So, I have to get mom to help pay for my cheap little apartment share.

  • I live in a pretty small town right now, only about 16,000 people, near Springfield in Western Massachusetts, which might be the biggest hellhole in the state, haha. There are 5 colleges in the area, including UMass, a huge state school (and my alma mater... ZOOMass, whuttttt?🙌🍻) so they gouge the captive audience on rent. I'm in a 2 bedroom townhouse that also has a private basement area separate from the common area basement where the laundry machines are, and it's ABSURDLY cheap for the area, only $800 a month. The landlord is kind of just a handyman that made an investment in a row of townhouses, but he could charge much more. I'm literally ten minutes from my last apartment, also a 2 bedroom, but on one floor and no private basement, just over the line into the next town, and it was $1100 a month!!! So moving here was a no brainer, it's bigger and cheaper. The cheapest place I had out here was in the hood in the next city over and people were getting shot on my street, haha. That one was $600 a month for essentially a studio, but I cheap wall was up, so it was like a one bedroom efficiency apartment. But sitting on the couch and being two feet from my stove wasn't really my scene, but it was ok for a single guy to shower and sleep. Literally impossible to have friends over though, haha. Capacity was a hard "2." Still better than getting scalped for an apartment close to UMass though. And where I'm originally from, in Boston, forget about it. $1100 a month won't get you a warm doorway. It's not quite NYC prices, but still ridiculously expensive.

  • Depends, downtown in non convenient places you could find some for 1 bedroom 900 a month. But if you want to live in lets say a condo in the middle of downtown it can be 1900 a month. You could also find a 2 bedroom for 2200.

  • Where I live in London (UK) currently (converting it to USD), my friends who live in a shared flat (with strangers and shared bathroom) is about 750$-900$ a month. And they're not even that nice tbh (mould and everything)... A 1 bedroom flat for oneself would start at about 1000$, goes up a hella lot the more bedrooms you add to it.
    Yes, its crazy. And yes, young people have hardly a future of owning their own place here. 😔
    And prices are sky rocketing like crazy as the rich Chinese are buying up the properties here. 😪 And the houses and apartments here aren't even nice, they're so old and breaking apart... 😓

    • Oh come on there's no way you could get a 1 room flat in London for 1k US. What part?

      I do business with Lloyd's everyday and I remember an intern was renting a room in a flat for about 950£

    • @sjoes006 I know in South London there is... But they are real shit quality for the most part 😂Central London, no way in hell 😂

  • My definition of expensive is different. I live in a poor average small apartment complex. I don't much about apartment but then can go as 50,000... i live where most low class folk my mom pay 700 a month but we share living expenses with her husband!

    • As a broke college student I think it's expensive af lol @lePoivre

    • Lol if I didn't live where I do, I would probably think it's expensive too (as I am a poor college student as well). I would kill for at least a studio that's under $800 here though.

  • About $2,000 in the downtown area and $1,200 elsewhere for a 1/1

  • i live near Philadelphia. there is a very large range. anywhere from about $600-800 per month for a studio to thousands of dollars per month... I'd say on average a 1 bedroom place goes for about 1,500-2,000 per month

    those are all prices for nicer area. in the bad areas I'm sure you can get very cheap apartments

  • Depends on location and decency.

    Some simple, small apartments (just bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, toilet) about $100/month.
    Decent apartments (say 2 rooms, kitchen, bathroom, toilet etc) is about $150-$250/month.
    Very good apartments about $250-$300/month (multiple rooms, guest room etc).
    Really good / "luxurious"-level apartments range within $350+/month and about up to $500/month.

    Just throw in some extra $20-$50 depending on how close apartments are to city center.
