Overview of Santa Monica

You might think it would be difficult to find cheap apartments in Santa Monica, but there are rentals available for every budget. Everyone has different situations, causing them to look for inexpensive accommodations. For instance, Santa Monica College students are always trying to save money for their current classes or building up a fund to attend UCLA nearby.

Struggling actors and actresses are always flowing into this beach community because it's close to all auditions and big entertainment companies. If you haven't hit the big time yet, you'll need humble accommodations to make your dreams come true. Santa Monica is home to an eclectic community of both young and old, so housing must be versatile to meet everyone's needs.

Finding a Cheap Apartment in Santa Monica

You might want a California apartment away from the crowded main streets, but you won't find many affordable choices on the smaller side roads. Santa Monica has tiny houses along side streets, making most of these properties too expensive for many renters. Look along main drags to find cheaper accommodations. Santa Monica, Pico and Olympic Boulevards are perfect locations to start your rental search. When you do find several prime choices, however, read over this Rent.com blog post to ensure you're getting the best deal for your money.

Cheap rental prices are all relative, starting between $1,400 and $1,700 and going up from there per month for either a studio or one-bedroom property. There's almost never an off-season in Santa Monica, but you can try to rent cheap properties when college students move out for the summer. Vacant spaces may actually have an inexpensive price tag in some cases.

What to Look for in Cheap Apartments in Santa Monica

Los Angeles gets hot in the summer, but you can do without an air conditioner living right by the beach. Because you give up certain amenities, you'll find cheap properties flourishing before your eyes. Be aware that square footage will be small such as 300 to 500 square feet for a one-bedroom apartment. You'll probably not have a parking garage, but you will have a prime beach city location for fun in the sun.
