Here’s what you can rent for $950 in Philly

The apartments are mostly studio or one-bed places, but they range in terms of style and size.


University City (1 bed, 1 bath)—This University City charmer offers a lot of light, as well as a cool, artsy exterior. The apartment has hardwood floors throughout, granite countertops and a dining room (a hard find in most one-bed places). There’s also free laundry on the ground floor.


Point Breeze (1 bed, 1 bath)—This apartment in Point Breeze has a ton to offer—from a bright kitchen, to a decorative fireplace in the entryway. There’s even a second den area (for guests, or just more living space). The apartment is carpeted throughout, and there’s a big porch outside. Unfortunately, you can’t bring pets, but you can enjoy the washer/dryer in unit.


Newbold (Studio, 1 bath)—This newly renovated studio in Newbold has lots of little desirable details—tall windows, some industrial-style elements, and hardwood floors. It’s just blocks from Broad Street, between the Tasker-Morris and Ellsworth-Federal stops.


Center City (Studio, 1 bath)—This studio apartment may be small—you’ll have to supply your own kitchen counter space—but that’s likely because of its location. It’s right in the heart of Center City, at 13th and Locust. It has tile floors in the main room, and a 24-hour doorman downstairs. You can’t bring your pets (they probably wouldn’t fit well in the space anyway) but the building has a bunch of amenities, including laundry and a community room.


Frankford (2 bed, 1 bath)—By far the most space you’ll get for the $950 price point is this two-bed apartment in Frankford, just blocks from the Arrott Transportation Center (one of the last stops on the EL). It has an updated bathroom and updated kitchen, with ample counter space, and it’s carpeted throughout the living areas.
