Renting a 2 bedroom apartment in Oakland, CA

Things to remember when looking for a cheap 2 bedroom apartment in Oakland, CA

There is a series of factors that determine the price of a rental apartment in Oakland, CA. Its location is probably at the top of the list. The closer a building is to the city center, or to a public transportation station, the more expensive it is. The same goes for buildings located in popular areas with a high density of quality dining, shopping and entertainment options. That’s because most renters would rather be close to where things are happening, thus creating an increased demand for those apartments. Another determinant is the quality of the building, as in how old it is, how well maintained, what amenities it offers. Similarly, the quality of the apartment unit itself is a factor. A furnished apartment will most certainly cost more than an unfurnished one. One that has newer appliances, or has been remodeled recently, is going to demand a higher price. On the flip side, you can find some really good deals if none of these factors are a priority for you. There are 8 apartment buildings in Oakland, CA you can explore that offer all types of floor plans, including cheap 2 bedroom apartments.
