On a budget but still want to live close to downtown? Rent out this room in this five-bedroom, two-bathroom Old Town townhouse. You’ll get a lot more space, there’s a total of 1,600 square feet over three levels, but you’ll have to share with four other roommates. Rent it for just $900.
These coliving apartments come fully furnished and expenses like wifi, weekly cleaning, laundry, and utilities are all included the rent. Plus, the building comes with a home theater, bar, and gym. Even though you’ll be living in a shared house, each tenant will have a private room. There are a few “studios” renting for under a $1,000—this one is $965.
