I assume you mean rentals even though this is usually about ownership.
For your very rushed situation you may have to find a weekly motel rental, I think there area few on Cornhusker highway or West O St. that may be cheap and at least safe, also one at 27th & O Sts. If you really get hard up the People's City Mission on West O should let you have a place to stay for a few nights.
For apartments, "affordable" is a relative term and I don't know if I am assuming a lot lower than what you can afford, but probably the area around downtown has more apartments that are less expensive, the Near South from downtown to A or South St., the "Russian Bottoms" west of 9th St., the North Bottoms, the area east of downtown.
If you go to the east side, Havelock, University place and some of that area around 56th and Adams up through Havelock Ave. probably has some cheap places. Even if you make a good salary, if you need a place FAST the big apartment complexes may have procedure for screening their clients that may take too long for your situation.
Check out Craigslist or the Journal Star classifieds. The paper classifieds may be less likely to have someone who will rip you off. If using an online ad remember not to make any payment unless you meet them in person to show you the place. Checking references and even a small credit check fee are not unheard of, just make sure there is no doubt the person taking money is definitely the owner or manager of the apartment. Note that SOME of the apartments downtown or in th eHaymarket have been converted to high-priced luxury condos, but look around, there are still some cheap ones, especially as you go south and east.... more
