Renting a studio apartment in Portland, OR

If you are looking for affordable housing you’re in the right place. There are 506 rental units, with prices starting from as low as $450. Are you the typical bachelor who thinks a house is four wheels with a bed and not a zen-zone where happiness lives? Or maybe you are a very active professional, living the big-city life, practically spending all your existence downtown: working, eating and having fun. Essentially, you’re only going home for sleeping. So why would it bother you that you have your kitchen in the main room and there is no balcony with beautiful views? You don’t have time to enjoy it anyway. And besides, you’re not the type to be staying in anyways. In that case, all you need is a cheap studio. The average size for apartments in Portland, OR is 757 Sqft, but you will end up most probably with something much smaller, which will be nonetheless a good deal. If you’ve already set your mind on the “find efficiency apartment” mode, stop reading now and select “Studio” from our Beds filter. On the other hand, if you’re looking for something that is a bit homier, keep reading.

If you are not Mr. or Mrs. efficiency apartment…

It looks like you’re ballin’ on a budget, but you like your alone time at home. There can be huge differences between a small apartment and a studio apartment. If you like unwinding at home after a long day and cooking on the weekends, we recommend you to search for single bedroom apartments, where you will have a bit more space and a separate kitchen. Let’s face it, moving into a studio just because it’s a good deal it’s not always a good idea. Yes, probably your apartment will be more expensive than the cheapest pad in Portland, OR which is going for $450, but it’s hard to put a price on feeling comfortable in your own home. Going down this path doesn’t necessarily mean either that you will need to overspend, with 198 listings and an average rent of $1,603 you will most likely find a one room apartment to call home.
