If that's not an option, what about suburban LA county - areas like Torrance, Pasadena

The truth is, the vast majority of LA county is quiet. The only busy noisy areas are the hot areas like DTLA, Hollywood, Weho, Santa Monica, Venice, etc.
I guess I didn't clarify.

I am looking in SFV for an apartment.
By "quiet" I mean no noisy partiers or loud booming music.
Traffic noise does not other me. Give me a screaming baby, tap dancing opera singer any day over thumping surround sound.

I paid my rent online this morning, and decided to check for vacancies on the property management company's website. It turns out that there is a one-bedroom unit available in my area - for $1,795!!! I'm paying $1,593 for a two-bedroom. The rents are crazy now.

I know people who used Westside Rentals with great success. The CL scams usually show a photo of a "model home" looking property and have EVER AVAILABLE AMENITY listed, including accepting cats and dogs, at an amazing price. No address though. Just flag them and keep looking. Set up alerts if you can because sometimes you can get notification of a showing/open house that will be happening almost immediately or within a day or two. Go prepared with a prefilled out application and copies of all the usual documentation. I advise to not even look for a place until your documentation is lined up, that way you won't be disappointed.

How do I do a reverse image search?
Save an image to your desktop or copy the URL. Then there's websites like this one that will look for duplicates on the web https://www.tineye.com/
