    Hey,

    Im looking for a bachelor or one bed apartment in West Hollywood / Beverly Hills area.

    I already live in Beverly Hills but may have to move out on my own soon (relationship troubles) unless we can work it out. Problem is I can only spend max $8-900 as im a student. Id like an apartment style building with good light as I need it for art... any suggestions as regards a nice, friendly young-professional type street, building, etc. close to Santa Monica Blvd and west of La Brea but preferably west of Fiarfax?

    Thanks guys

    You mentioned affordable. That takes habitable out of the equation.

    I live in rent-controlled Canada, and it's the same here. Actually, all of Canada is as awesome as California now that I think of it, except that you don't have gay marriage yet, but I digress. I have an awesome 2 bedroom apartment with a killer view. I moved in over 10 years ago. I'm paying just over $800 a month ($800+ something in US$.) Anyone moving in after i move out would be paying over $1200. Call Madison, the cute gay Realtor from HGTV, and recently from Millionnaire Matchmaker. I'm a Realtor. We all do things that we don't advertise. Most Realtors have rentals in their back pockets.

    Thank for the input guys. I have a beautiful 1 bed here at the moment and its only $1300 so Im sure there is something in the area that'll suit me, just need a bit of luck and persistence...

    if you want something enough there's always a way to get it

    It's do-able. Try Craigslist or Westside Rentals.

    Silverlake has more affordable apartments.
    Find a place in a safe neighborhood, and one that has rent control.

    I live in LA and am very familiar with Silverlake, Great bars: The Eagle, Faultline, MJ's and Akbar

    Nice crowd, more genuine guys and down to earth. Its a great "neighborhood" feel to LA. I recommend you live there instead of Weho with all of the annoying hollywood wannabes
