Gainesville, FL ApartmentsCommunity ForumWhat should I pay for rent
What should I pay for rent. Wow there are a ton of available apartments in Gainesville! Does anyone know what the rent should be on a one bedroom apartment? I just don't want to over pay. Seems like with that many apartments for rent, the prices should be competitive.
Yes, definitely a lot of apartments in Gainesville. That's the upside of living in a college town! A lot of selection. For a one bedroom, MyApartmentMap lists the average price in Gainesville at $643. So, the range extends from $550-750, depending on the quality of the place and amenities, but the middle mark is around $650. Good luck.
Rent really varies based on the apartment complex and the area in Gainesville. If you are looking for a brand new apartment near UF, you'll pay more than if you are willing to live a 30 minute drive (with traffic) away from the University. You can find some apartments that are as low as $449 per month per person here: http://www.trimarkproperties.com/index.php
