How to rent an apartment with bad credit?
If you have bad credit or no credit, you’re still eligible to rent an apartment. If you have bad credit, some rental companies will require you to pay more upfront. They might also have you show proof of ongoing employment. If you are still struggling to find an apartment, you can also collect letters of recommendation or get someone with good credit to help by having them co-sign the contract. If all else fails, budget your time so you can spend a little longer searching for apartments that don’t require credit checks.

How much is the rent for an apartment per month on average?
Rent prices change considerably depending on where the apartment is located, what style of apartment it is and how many rooms are included in the apartment. Real estate prices change every year, and rent in the USA can range anywhere from $500 for a small one-bedroom studio apartment in a rural area to almost $6,000 for a three-bedroom apartment in a high-income neighborhood. Despite this huge difference in rent prices throughout the country, the average rent in the USA is typically between $800 and $1,200 per month.
How much is a one bedroom apartment for rent?
Prices for a one bedroom apartment vary greatly depending on where the apartment is located and what kind of amenities the apartment complex offers. Generally speaking, a one bedroom apartment will cost about $700 to $1,000 dollars a month. However, these prices can increase dramatically in certain high-income neighborhoods.
How much is the rent for a two bedroom apartment on average?
The average rent for a two bedroom apartment is about $1,175.

How much does it cost to rent a studio apartment?
A studio apartment is the most cost-effective choice for anyone looking for a cheap living space.

The rent for these spaces ranges from about $600 to $900 on average. However, it is still possible to find studio apartments for as little as $450 in some parts of the USA.
