Apartments For Rent Right Now At Every Price Point

No matter your budget, there are some great options out there waiting for you.

Choosing a place to rent and call home for a few years is a big financial decision, and one often made under strict constraints. Last-minute job changes, graduations, and the end of previous leases can all contribute to the need to find a new apartment for rent as soon as possible. If you haven’t set a rigid guide, it can be easy to blur the numbers on your monthly rent, squeeze your eyes shut, and sign a lease for a slightly overbudget apartment.

However luxurious that pricey new place feels, it might cost you in the long run by putting you in the red, or depleting the money you could be adding to a down payment or rental savings account. If you set an apartment budget ahead of time, then you’ll be able to focus your search on or near a particular price point, and you won’t be tempted to overreach with that more expensive apartment.

So, go ahead and compute the financials, set a rental budget, and then enjoy the fun part: Searching the oodles of apartments for rent in your new hometown! Here are six apartments for rent at every price point from $700 per month to $1,200 per month to get you started.
