You can most likely find something around $20-$50 a month. Contact your car insurance company, they may have combined deals that will save you money!

Renter's insurance is fairly expensive and can run between $25-$75 depending on what you want to include in the coverage.
Let me know if you need me to make a recommendation for a couple of Insurance agents who can help you out.

There are of course several factors that influence your premium. I contacted my insurance representative Don Matthew with Liberty Mutual and he estimated it would be about $21 a month. I can put you in contact with him for more information if you would like.

Good luck!

Assuming nothing unusual it won't be more than a couple hundred dollars. Since you are insuring the contents the quote will vary based on the value of your contents. Plus factors such as security systems,....will also affect price. Check for all available discounts such as multipolicy with your auto insurance or AAA.

I have a great agent at Liberty Mutual. If you need contact info let me know,

Sabrina, not only does your location matter but the dollar amount of coverage and size of deductible will also factor into the equation. You should be able to obtain a free quote from most reputable insurance brokers.

Hi Sabrina,
Rent vs. Buy is a great ongoing question, and depends so much on your personal situation. At the heart of the starting point is your question: What are LA rental rates? Los Angeles has as many varied rents as it does geography and community, so the better question would be: What are the rents in my local community? To share that information, I would need to know where in Los Angeles you want to live, and what amenities you want, and what your general budget is. Then we could discuss rental rates vs. proximity to transportation, proximity to social and lifestyle amenities, condition of properties, etc.
In general, the rental market is soft, because it is a buyers market for purchasing. When homes are more affordable to own, less people will be renting; therefore, prices will be lower.
