Reader Asks: Where Can I Rent a 1-Bd for $1,100/mo or Less?

By August 4, 2011


Can you help this reader out?

I’m in the market for a one-bedroom within decent commuting distance of Seattle via public transit and wanted to see if you had any ideas. I’ve been looking into all the regular places and new spots (The Station, etc.) and would like to keep things under $1,100, so it looks like it’s going to be a lot of legwork. Just wanted to see if off the top of your head you had some ideas that might have totally passed me by.

Our suggestions were far from revolutionary: Craigslist and Padmapper as go-to search tools and a rundown of newer apartments with decent transportation options (which may or may not fit the requested rent range). So we’re turning this question over to you. We’d love to hear about your secret, unlisted finds or your especially helpful resources in comments.
