The Best Deals on Rent: Low-Cost Apartments in Phoenix

Inexpensive, affordable, reasonably priced, or simply and solely: cheap—whichever way you put it, there’s no denying, a bargain deal always makes pupils dilate. Relax, it’s not just you, it’s basic human nature to reach for the low-hanging fruit.

However, affordability is very much a relative concept and varies greatly from one city to another, so we always start by giving our trusty market data tool, Yardi Matrix a little exercise. So we did just that and found that the average rent in Phoenix is currently $859. Compare that to the $1,204 national average, taking account of the steady employment growth of recent years, and you’ve got yourself a pretty welcoming atmosphere—in spite of the desert heat.

It comes as no surprise then, that low-cost apartments in Phoenix are far from scarce. All that’s left for you to do is pick the very best deal of all the bargains out there. Oh wait, we may have already done the heavy lifting for you…

Scroll down and check out five of the many low-cost apartments in Phoenix—your next home may be among them:

Rub your eyes all you want, Marble Creek is really that close to Central City Phoenix, and the price is really that ridiculous. The neighborhood is full of shops, restaurants, cinemas and department stores, but you shouldn’t actually leave home for a bit of active relaxation, as the community has everything from a swimming pool and spa to BBQ areas and sports courts.

We know a bargain when we see one, and this one right here is a steal. Sombra Apartment Homes has all the outdoor amenities you can think of, coupled with well-equipped interiors, and… Just look at those manicured lawns! And those prices! Hey, even the largest, 1,150-square-foot apartment with three bedrooms and two baths commands much less than the monthly average rent in Phoenix.

Maya LindaNorth Mountain — rents starting at $553 — Check availability

First of all, let’s get something straight: that pool area is awesome and I want to take a plunge…
Now that I got this off my chest, let’s focus on the important details. The upgraded interiors at Maya Linda scream quality, and the rest of the outdoor spaces are just as inviting as that shimmering pool. Also, the community is just a short ride from Downtown Phoenix as well as Glendale, and within walking distance from the Metrocenter Mall.
