You're dreaming.

You can get by with $900 a month minimum with roommates.

For studio or 1 bedrooms, you're looking at $1,200 minimum, and most are $1,400 or more.

If you're looking at $700-900, try Hollywood, North Hollywood, maybe some parts of Mid-Wilshire (eastern part closer to Koreatown)

You could probably swing that if you share a room. I just saw an ad on craigslist where you can get a couch for $500.

Totally dreaming. Redturtle has it right. If your budget is 700-900, you might be able to share a 2 bedroom in a less desirable building/area of West Hollywood (I've seen 2 bedrooms going for 1600 but they aren't exactly the best ones in WeHo).

Youre dreaming. Im living in a modest typical apartment building in west hollywood (crescent hts/santa monica blvd area).
Rent is $1400 for a one bedroom. With a 700-900 budget youll most likely have to share a one bedroom or quite possibly a crummier 2bdrm towards the far east end of weho.

While Weho is very Nice, you do get more bang for your buck. Stay south of Magnolia. I have worked the area for a long time so you are welcome to contact me for help.

Thanks,

Thanks again

That price won't get you a one bedroom in Hollywood unless you want to live some place scary. Forget about WeHo.

Sad to say dreaming. You might be able to do $900 if you have a roommate - my old building on Sweetzer (between Santa Monica and Fountain) had two bedroom units for about $1800 (which is amazing for WeHo) but those units are rarely available, for obvious reasons. I've lived in West Hollywood for years and while I LOVE it, it's very expensive.

I would say if you can't do a roommate situation and you absolutely want to live in West Hollywood you're going to need to expect to spend probably more in the neighborhood of $1400 plus for a studio or one bedroom.

Best of luck!

How about West L.A.? There are some affordable places there, and it's pretty centrally located to lots of good stuff.
