I'm wondering if there's a general rule for how much a one bedroom should cost in comparison to a two bedroom. Let's say you have a two bedroom that costs $1,000 a month in rent. How much would a one bedroom in the same exact location, of the same quality cost? Is there a rule for this? Or is it just too variable?

Location plays too big a role in deciding this. My studio costs 1250 with parking. 2-bedroom units run for 1600-1700 in my hood.

In cities with less desirability, those rents could get you a small house rental.

Typically, the difference between a one to two bedroom unit is around 100-200 dollars.

If the quality and location are the same, it is about $100 per bedroom in my area.

Prices vary more widely due to quality than they do to number of bedrooms.

I would say $700-$750 for a 1BR.

I'd say 25-40% more than a 1-bedroom with the same location/features.

Depends where you live honestly.

But for sake of answering, if you live in the average city I would say $200 difference.

There is no rule or percentage between 1 and 2 bedroom regarding price, the only rule is the 2 is more expensive.

Like others have said, it really depends on the city. But in every place I've lived, it seems like 2br apartments cost about 25-35% more than a 1br.

Whatever the apartment owners can get.

I recently moved from a city in which studios could go from $1250 on up. I moved to another where they could start at $500. Each are in good neighborhoods. Another example, previous city: $1040 one bedroom for 550 sq ft heat not included. New city, $775 one bedroom plus alcove 1100 sq ft heat included. Both top neighborhoods with all amenities.

Again, whatever the market will bear and whatever people are willing to pay.

A top 'hood in Gary, IN is probably quite different from that in Santa Barbara, CA
