Los Angeles is sometimes known as the Big Orange. In terms of population, it ranks just behind the Big Apple as the second most populous city in the nation. While the city is most well known for being the center of the world's television and film production, not everyone who lives in LA works in the entertainment business.

Encompassing a land area of over 460 square miles, Los Angeles is one of the most widespread metropolitan areas in the world. The city's widely dispersed geographic dynamic, lends LA a diversity that is embodied by it many distinct neighborhoods and districts.

Affordable apartments can be found throughout the city but are frequently available in areas like Koreatown, Los Feliz and even in parts of the city's recently revitalized downtown area.

What to Look for in a Cheap Apartment

When looking for cheap apartments for rent in Los Angeles, or anywhere, it's a good idea to be somewhat flexible. Obviously you shouldn't have to settle for renting some run-down dive, but cheaper apartments frequently offer less in the way of amenities. However one of the great things about LA is that it's often possible to find an affordable place to live in a decent area.

With owning a car being fairly integral to living in LA, it's a good idea to look for an apartment with parking nearby. It's also important that you try and find an apartment rental in a neighborhood that will allow you to safely walk to and from your car at night.
