Hi, I'm going to be moving to Long Beach. How cheap can I get a 1 bedroom apartment in Belmont Heights or Belmont Shore. I hear those are the decent places to live for a single guy that's 31.

I want the cheapest 1 bedroom apartment in Long Beach area, that isn't run down...any help will be appreciated

Probably around $1000-1100/mo. Thats actual Belmont Shores, in an older building(but not necessarily run down).

You can get into studios in Belmont Shores for around $950, with little odd places going as low as $850.

Studios without parking in adjacent areas of Long Beach between DTLB and Belmont Shores, but within a few blocks of the water, can go as low as $650 or so a month. But they may be a bit ghetto. 1 bedrooms in those areas go at around $850+ per month.

I just moved to Belmont Shore from SD. Great area with a laid back, young professional vibe. I came from Pacific Beach and it's much more grown up so to speak. Found a 1-bdm on craigslist for 1150. Parking can be tight, but I'm a few blocks east of 2nd and never have a problem.

A few questions....

1. Does DTLB stand for Down Town Long Beach?

2. When you say they might be a bit ghetto...do you mean the area as far as crime and stuff....or the quality of the apartment is ghetto?

3. Do you have any links of possible apartments that might be in that range?

A. Link for possible studios in that area for 650
B. Link for possible One Bedroom for 850

What do you mean by more grown up than pacific beach?
What's the difference between the two?
Do you like the L.A. / Long Beach Area better than San Diego?
Are you saying Pacific beach is immature and just partiers?

I'm asking because I'm also thinking about San Diego....it's between Long Beach, Seal / Huntington Beach, or San Diego

Try Park Estates (across Cal State LB), it is an expensive area in Long Beach. There are lots of cheap apartments.

This is where I'd ordinarily refer you to Padmapper.com but since the whole Craigslist debacle it's probably not going to be as useful. Still worth a shot.

Why...What do you mean by the Craigslist Debacle? What happened?

Craigslist forces PadMapper to pull apartment listings | Digital Trends

It's big news.

You can still use it + search craigslist and learn to spot the spammers and scammers. Only respond to ads with contact info and location information.
