We went hunting for the very cheapest apartment renting right now on Craigslist--not a room share, not a manager's unit, not a trailer, not a boarding house, no move-in specials, nothing that sounds like a scam--just a legit apartment with no strings attached. (And it had to be in greater LA--sorry California City.) Here's what we found.
Location: East Hollywood
What you get: "Unfurnished, Third Floor, Bachelor, 1 Bath, Tile Floors, laundry on site, refrigerator, stove, controlled access building, totally redone apartment in Hollywood apartment is quiet, ceiling fans, close to bus and markets, small Kitchenette, Wall Heater, easy access to metro and bus lines, this apt is excellent for students. es. Close to Los Angeles City College, 101 fwy, markets?Close to Melrose Ave."
And here's one more that comes pretty close:

What you get: "This is a BRAND NEW-Small but Private Bachelor Apt. ( for 1 Person)
