Search for apartments in California under $900

There’s more than one way to spend $900 on rent in California, so the first step is to start thinking about what you really want from your new home. Be mindful of what makes you tick. Look for 2 bedroom apartments for rent for less than $900 if you want to share your living space and don’t mind being further away from the city center. Search for 3 bedroom apartments if you’re moving in with family or planning to share part of your life and living expenses with more friends. If city bustle is what you live for, you might want to search for a studio or 1 bedroom apartment closer to the city center.

The perfect $900 rental near you

Don’t dismiss the idea of a studio just because it sounds small and featureless: studios come in many shapes and sizes, and it only takes a few strikes of creativity to go from drab to lively.
