Balancing snug and cheap is no joke when it comes to renting a place to live. “Are there any apartments near me under $3,000?” is a great question to start from. Knowing your budget means you’re one step ahead and on the right track. We’ve taken care of the rest and found 87 apartments for rent in Rancho Santa Margarita, CA on which you’ll spend less than $3,000.

The cost of utilities is likely to run low, and you get the added benefit of not having to spend too much time cleaning up the whole place. Smaller apartments are more likely to be closer to the city center, so there are potential cuts to your transportation costs too. And here’s one more very special secret to add to your book-of-perks: you’re less likely to overshop when you know your space is limited.
