I dont have a car, just got a housing/share offer in beverly hills, near Pico. Would the commute to Downtown LA be easy via public transporation? Also is $600 a reasonable price to share a 2 bedroom appart?

the bus ride would include at least one transfer if you took pico all the way downtown. i recommend going up to olympic for a one seat ride. also, $600 seems very low to split a 2br apartment, especially in beverly hills. i would check the place out first and meet your potential roomate before making any decisions.

The word cheap and Beverly Hills do not belong in the same sentence. However, the areas which barely touch Beverly Hills aren't that nice...those will be cheaper. I was amazed how much of the city isn't really fancy.

$1200 for a 2 bedroom in Beverly Hills? That seems unreasonably low. Make sure it isn't someone with two card board boxes.

Curious since I'm apartment hunting. Which areas bordering Beverly Hills are cheaper?

Same here... that price seems rediculously low... If that is the case, please point me toward your search source because I would like to find out about studios (BH or the bordering hoods)

The cheapest decent studio I've found online is still over $1,000 in BH or within 1- 1.5 miles in any direction of BH. One bedroom cheapest is about $1,200 and I'm not sure those even include utilities.

I had two offers, one was for $600 (was very suspicious about that one because it also included private bathroom), the other one was rented out for $800 with shared bathroom. You must understand that some people own their housing. In this economy, they are willing to share it at lower cost, but only with someone they can trust. People trust me all the time

$600 a month sounds very good, assuming the place is nice enough. Public transportation to downtown is very easy from Pico. Lots of buses and Pico runs directly into downtown, or at least, south of downtown. As someone else said just walk up two blocks to Olympic and take the bus directly into (less south) downtown.

That's what I was thinking when I read this; $1200 per mo in BH will barely get you the carport at a nice apt or condo complex; and for a house, forget it, doesn't exist.
