What you can rent in Philly for less than $1,000 a month

From $900 to $1,000, these are some of the more affordable homes to rent around Philly


Welcome back to Curbed Comparisons, a dive into the options available for a certain price point in various Philly neighborhoods. How many beds can you get in Roxborough versus Kensington? Let’s find out! Today’s price point: around $950 a month.


Allegheny West (2 bed, 1 bath)— Just minutes from Temple University and plenty of street parking, this $1,000-a-month home offers two bedrooms with recently renovated hardwood and carpet floors, and new kitchen appliances. An added bonus? There’s a washer and dryer in unit.


Germantown (2 bed, 1 bath)—This recently-built Germantown apartment has new windows, hardwood floors and a new kitchen (with a cute railroad tile backsplash). The spacious home offers 1,080 square feet of space, 9-foot ceilings, and a decorative fireplace, all for $950 per month.


Fairhill (3 bed, 2 bath)—This recently refurbished Fairhill home has a number of attractive features, starting with its $900 rental price. It also has a garage, patio, yard, and kitchen with a dishwasher and granite countertops. Plus, you can bring your furry friends along—both cats and dogs are welcome.


Bridesburg (2 bed, 1 bath)—This roomy two-bed home offers 850 square feet of space in Bridesburg, close to both the river and I-95. It also has yard space and sits next to a SEPTA stop. In addition to its desirable location, the $900 rental unit has sleek floors, plenty of windows, and columns in the living area.


University City (Studio, 1 bath)—At 350 square feet, this studio apartment is the smallest rental unit on the list. The home, which costs $995 a month, has hardwood floors and a large, walk-in closet as well as a tiled bathroom. There might be a reason for its small size—the apartment sits in a desirable location at 43rd and Spruce, just outside University City.
