      Nope not sure if this is the right board though. Closest one I saw. Got a good it job out in LA and looking sources and being near the train I'm kinda fricked in locations.

        Yeah, LA is expensive as shit. I’m not trying to be a dick, but 75k doesn’t go very far at all there or in San Francisco.

          It's about double what I make now I already told my landlord I am ending the lease in a week and took the job with my 2 weeks on the books. How the frick is 75k not that much? I know California is expensive but it can't be that expensive. I expected maybe 1000 for a good place but now I'm looking at one paycheck a month simply going to rent and utilities

            I’m not saying it’s poor, but LA doesn’t have good transit infrastructure. If you want to live in a good neighborhood that has train access, it comes at a premium. I’m not trying to demoralize, you can live on it, but it’s probably going to take being more strategic than you’re probably used to with these things. I’m also from the rural south for what it’s worth, so I kinda get the culture shock here.

            Roommates are a good option.

              That's why I am looking for stuff near the light rail. I'm going to end up making less than if I just stayed here...

            You're frickin shittin me.
            I'm from California, if you asked me "what's the cheapest you can rent a house, anywhere in the country?" I'd probably guess $1000.

            It's expensive in a lot of ways that get you. Taxes are high. Gas is $5. The minimum wage is close to $20. Libruls don't seem to understand this drives up the cost of literally everything including housing because everything requires food and fuel to keep going.

            There's some things that are relatively cheap, groceries in CA are better quality and less expensive than a lot of states especially with produce, meat can be about the same or more. There's tons of ethnic food that's cheap. The beach is free. I've noticed Californians spend a lot of time hanging out with people in their backyard drinking beer and things like that whereas in other states they go to bars, that's just too expensive here.
            Not having debt like student loans or going out any buying a new car on credit helps a lot.

              >everything is expensive but everything is affordable
              it works for california because it increases their poor's wealth in comparison to the poor of the wider nation
              it's actually brilliant

                Yeah, I've seen just how well-off the poor people in California are living. Worse than almost any other US state, in spite of the ginormous gibs-me-dat programs.
                More and more of the cheap produce sold in California is Mexican products undercutting the California-grown produce. Avocados, for instance.
                Still, when I stepped off the Amtrak in Sacramento to 72 degrees and sunshine in November, it becomes clear why people want to live in a state that never really gets below freezing. But why they have to dump so much garbage everywhere? California is not a place I'd feel good on foot either. You want to have a car to be safe from the street druggies, but getting a car is also a challenge if you're starting from zero.

              I can get an entire house here in Fargo for about 600 a month

          When I lived in Tiburon across the bay bridge from SF in 2021, an 800 square foot apartment started at $3200/month. After 14 months, they wanted to raise it to $3600/month so we left and moved back to Socal and found a nice place for $1700.

          The other killer is commuting into SF. You spend $10/day in tolls on the Golden Gate Bridge and $30/day to park. If you work 5 days a week, that's $10,000 a year to drive to work not including gas. And you'll get your car broken into at least once a year. Now factor in that groceries, gas, electricity and restaurants are 20 percent more expensive in SF, and you start to see why you can't save a dime even with a larger salary.

        If you work with people you know locally in small towns you can often get a good deal, craigslist is also good if you don't mind staying in some older housing. Plenty of people just lease out houses in the midwest for very cheap because they just want to keep it up to date and pay off the taxes. They just are looking to sell it later down the line.

    Don’t know what to tell you. $1500 for a 1 br is cheap in a lot of the U.S. On the bright side, you can definitely swing that on $75k unless you have major debt payments.

        everything below $800 in kcmo is lying
        in kck you can get $600 but in kcmo $850 is the place where things actually become available
        and they're all terrible and roach-infested

        your best bet in that area is to go on craigslist but you won't get much privacy in a shared house

    The best spots to look for an "inexpensive "apartment in Orange County California is probably Tustin, Fullerton, Lake Forest, or any of the cities starting with Laguna. You won't find anything cheaper than $1400 a month for a one bedroom apartment, but those are all nice areas. Your only hope of getting a room for less is splitting the rent with roomates in a house or condo. That's fine until you're 25. After that, it's intolerable.
