Need real estate agent to find me a rental near UCLA

Asked by sammusashi, Los Angeles, CA Sat Aug 11, 2012

Hello, I am relocating from Georgia to LA for graduate school. I have been looking on my own for a rental property near UCLA and I haven't found anything yet. I am interested in getting a real estate agent represent me and help me find a suitable rental. I will be on a fixed income from the university, so it is important that I find a unit that is affordable. My budget is around $1000 a month, but any cheaper is better. House, condo, apartment, ect. is fine but I DO NOT want a roommate. I must have a full kitchen, with an oven, stove and full fridge. I will also need a full bathroom, with a sink, toilet, and shower. I also will need a parking spot. I would also like to be as close to school as possible. Walking or biking to UCLA would be ideal, however I am willing to live somewhere that is up to 20 minutes away by bus. I would also like to be in a location where I can walk to grocery/restaurants. Are there any agents out there who can help me find a rental that meets this criteria?

Sure, We can provide actual HD video tours of properties on yourbehalf as well as providing all paperwork via your mobile phone if you are immediately interested. In LA, we do not go through the offer/counteroffer style as is similar down south, its more based on credit. Income, isn't really a factor here either. You can make $10K a month, but have crappy credit scores, and you WILL NOT get APPROVED!!!

As a property manager (as well as an agent) I sometimes have studio apartments with a full kitchen and full bath in the Santa Monica area. Generally they range from $995-$1,350.

Many agents won't be interested in helping you with a budget of $1,000 per month. I suggest that you contact Property Management Companies in the surrounding areas and ask if they have any studios or Jr. one bedroom units coming available. I can email you a list if of property management companies if you would like me to.

All the best,

The request that you are asking is sadly not realistic for the Greater Los Angeles Rental Market. Either you need to increase your price or the commuting distance.

There probably are no agents that can help tou with this. It does not exist. What you mentioned would run you around 1800 and about 20 minute commute from ucla.

I would contact student housing and they can help you find a place...
