It's not always ideal but rent a room would be well below that? Those tend to be month to month.  Best of luck! :wave:

Good luck in finding  something that you can afford.  It will be pretty hard to find an apartment in WA for $500.  Hopefully other options are open to you.

I live in a different state but I can tell you what I told my niece when she was looking for a rent in that range.  Start by looking in some of the fliers at the local colleges, and stores.  Try looking at a couple of the websits that they have out.  A room may be one way but if you didn't want to do that what about rooming with someone else.  Also to save some money look for a rent that is a little higher but includes everything.  My niece could not find something in that range but she was able to find something about 550. but it includedd everything  lights heat and cable.  So the only bill she has is the rent and her phone.  So that is somethig might want to try

I live in WA state.  There are places, you just have to keep looking.  I am not sure where you are at here in Washington, but since you have internet access - go online to and look at the local newspaper ads, the penny press, or the giant nickel.  You can also do a search on Craigslist.  I hope this helps :)

Well, I do have a 1 bedroom apartment here in WA State and my rent is only $229 a month. It also includes cable too. I get half of my income from working part time and the other half from Social Security. So, I make about $800 a month. Anyways, I live in a apartment building where only the old and disabled folks can live. I get to stay here because of Social Security. My situation is that I may lose Social Security and won't be able to stay here anymore. So, the next best option for my apartment manager is to put me in another apartment where the rent will be $600 a month and I can't afford that without Social Security. Anyways, I would hate to move back with my mom because it took me long enough to move out as it is. I don't have anything against my mom. I just like to keep moving forward and not backwards. Thanks everyone for all your help and advice :)

We in IA in a 3 bedroom apartment and pay $385 a month (no assistance).  Maybe you could check in and see if you are eligible for rent assistance which may help get your rent under $500.

unless you are looking to be a roommate, $500 for rent probably isn't reasonable.
