Overview of Detroit

Home to professional sports teams like the Tigers and the Lions, Detroit is a popular city for those who love sports and those looking for cheap apartments. Cheap apartments for rent appeal to those looking to cut back and save money on expenses, recently graduated students starting off their careers and new residents moving to the city for school. Comerica Park and Ford Field are just a few of the popular attractions in the city, and these professional sports complexes also host concerts and other events. With Rent.com's price filters, finding apartments for rent near those attractions is easy.

Finding a Cheap Apartment in Detroit

Detroit is the home of Motown and R&B music, which is why you'll find lots of small bars and larger nightclubs to visit with your friends. The MGM Grand Detroit is one of the most popular casinos in Michigan, but you can also spend the day enjoying the sites at Belle Isle Park. Cheap apartments in the city start at around $400 a month but can reach $700 a month based on proximity to popular attractions and amenities available. Features like a covered or private parking space, central heating and air conditioning and a balcony or patio can add to the price. Most renters also find that prices are higher in and around downtown and drop the further they move towards the outskirts of the city. If you want to live downtown and still pay less in rent, check out this Rent.com blog post that covers ways renters can save money, including using less energy and eating at home more often.

What to Look for in Cheap Apartments in Detroit

Cheap apartments in Detroit will likely have fewer amenities than you might find in other Michigan apartments for rent. As the city has a dependable public transportation system, you might find that you don't need a place with parking because you can take the bus. Cheaper places may also lack central air conditioning and have less space. You can generally choose between a studio apartment and a one-bedroom apartment.

Studios have a more open floor plan with a small bathroom and a kitchen or kitchenette off to the side of the living room/bedroom, and some studios come with a Murphy bed that folds up into the wall to save space. A one-bedroom apartment will come with a separate kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom. The overall square footage of cheap apartments in Detroit is usually between 300 and 600 square feet.
