In all seriousness, if you're looking for your own place I'd suggest looking for a roommate/renting a room to achieve your budget. 1,000 is doable, but you'll have to sacrifice.


I'd also look at the Valley and the Inland Empire, which tends to be more affordable than LA/Westside/SouthBay etc.

The truth is there won't be a decent 1 bedroom place within commuting distance of LA for 1K. You will either have to live out in the high desert or rent a room in a house in most likely a not very nice area on your budget. Check craigslist.

Define "commuting distance," by time. Define "Los Angeles" by neighborhood.

Try networking with Los Angeles area Airbnb hosts. With the new law you can't rent unless "you'' live at the residence. You could definitely get a room in a nice area for $1000 a month or maybe even free

You wi'll always be the resident with the most seniority too which is always cool ��

I bet you can find something like that in Palmdale/Lancaster and if you had to you could take the train into L.A.

Room in a house is never a bad option, either, depending on circumstances. When I was going to school at LMU, I avoided the stupid cost of dorm rooms (why do I want a shared room for so much money?!) by renting a bedroom in a house literally right next to campus with a gate that led directly onto the campus. There were a few buildings where I was closer to them (3-4 minutes) walking than anyone on campus. It was amazing and it was $500/month, back in 2001 though. The lady who owned the house was nice enough, an older lady living there alone, and there was one other tenant, a very conscientious Asian girl who was a graduate student at LMU. Neither of them made any noise or caused any issues, and I could use the laundry room which was fantastic, that whole area is nice, upscale, and just 5-8 minutes from LAX, close access to almost anything.

I have to think if I was trying to save money in L.A. I'd probably go with the room-in-a-house option because it's a lot more affordable than most apartments, or yeah maybe a two bedroom with a roommate perhaps.
