Hi there. I'm an international student who's curious if there's any studios in San Jose for MAX $700 (would prefer $650.) I saw an ad on craigslist, but for that price both the kitchen and the bathroom was shared.

Is there studios for that price with private kitchen and bath?

For that price you're probably looking at a room with shared amenities. Try looking in Japantown/downtown, especially now with SJSU getting out there might be a lot more options for your price range.

Yes there is. There are small studios for $600/month ane these are located in project-type apartment buildings where many of your neighbors will be Section 8 qualified and some of your neighbors will be crack heads and junkies.

Better off just parking an old Winnebago somewhere and living out of that.

No, there aren't any studios you would want to live in for this price. Most room shares are more than $700 per month. If you look hard, you might find something decent for $1,000, but I'm not as up on the rental market as I was a few months ago. If my numbers are off, it's that $1,000 isn't enough.

If your concerned with price, I would look at moving somewhere else as the cost of living there is beyond ridiculous. I live in luxury studio with a large roman tub, washer dryer, dishwasher, and many other amenities for $415 a month. My apartment would probably go for $1,200-$1,500 in San Jose.

Your prospects for a good job and substantially higher payscale, on average, would also be increased in SJ compared to LV. They get paid more, and they pay more, and enjoy all that the Bay Area has to offer.

Actually, $1500 would be the low end for all those amenities.

Depends on the type of job you have. Not all of us are engineers/computer programmers. For a lot of people working retail jobs and other moderate to low paying jobs, they'd be a lot better off in Vegas. I suspect this is also true for a fair number of engineers & other professionals as well.

Until they get the electric bill for all the kWh burned by the AC.

Jobs aren't exactly falling from the sky out that way these days.
