What's The Cheapest Apartment Available In Midtown Sacramento Right Now?

According to rental site Zumper, median rents for a one bedroom in the heart of Midtown are hovering around $1,295, compared to a $1,200 one-bedroom median for Sacramento as a whole. That extra cost reflects a desirable neighborhood in convenient proximity to both jobs and nightlife.

So what does the low-end pricing on a midtown rental look like these days — and what might you get for your money?

We took a look at local listings for studios and one-bedroom apartments to find out what price-conscious apartment seekers can expect to find in this trendy Sacramento neighborhood, which, according to Walk Score ratings, is a "walker's paradise," is easy to get around on a bicycle and offers many nearby public transportation options.

Unfortunately, even the most reasonably priced options available are only modestly discounted, reflecting a tight market. Take a look at the cheapest listings available right now, below. (Note: prices and availability are subject to change.)
