Ok, I am moving to Maryland on August 22nd. Relocating from Michigan. What are the chances of getting a furnished apartment for $700 in the Columbia area? Doesn't need to be fancy. Just clean and in a safe area. Also don't want a long lease. If the new job doesn't work out for some off chance, I don't want to be stuck. Should end up being an 8-12 month stay. I'm 45, and am looking for something on the more quiet side.

Maybe check Craigslist.

I don't know the economy there, but you could probably get a room in a house share for that or less.

At least that would hold you over until you found what you were looking for.

Good luck.

I should say within a 30 mile radius of Columbia.

The only place that meets your criteria is a storage unit.

Take a look at what the rent is going at in Columbia, MD. Be sure you're sitting in a sturdy chair first.

I doubt you'll find anything in that price range, especially furnished.

Umm... I am moving in spet. to Columbia.. And let's put it this way. My 1 bedroom is 1300.. and that is without utilies. Columbia is expensive but you get what you pay for. 700 yes I def. agree you will be living in a bathroom. I would try Ellicott City or maybe Laurel.. You may find something there. There a little less cheaper.. but not by very much
Good luck

I'm pretty much open to anything within 30 miles or so of Columbia. Finding a few apartments unfurnished in my range.

Just curious. Why are you choosing Columbia. Is that where your new job is going to be?
