More people have been looking to move to San Antonio in 2022. (Especially from Austin!) And San Antonio rents aren’t dropping. From finding your perfect new home to negotiating rent prices, searching for an apartment in San Antonio can be quite the experience. Taking inspiration from our sister publication SFGate in San Francisco, MySA is looking at local properties showcasing the best, worst, and everything in between here in the Alamo City. Let’s guess the rent.

Sorry. We’re not touring an Classical Revival mansion this week. Instead we are taking a trip up to the historic Monte Vista neighborhood near San Antonio College for this 450-sqaure-foot house being billed as a studio apartment.

That’s small but you might be surprised how much the landlord has been able to fit into the space. The listing says the place is perfect for a “responsible student,” but is also asking for the tenant to show proof of income that is three times the monthly rent. 

“Responsible student” might be doing a lot of work once you see the rent. 

Let’s dive in.

The kitchen is immediately to your left.

As soon as you step in you’ll catch the kitchen off to your left. It has pretty much one person would need, including a microwave, toaster oven and a countertop stove. 

The landlord even found a space for a washer and dryer.

There is also fridge that is right next to the washer and dryer combo. They really fit everything in here. 

You can literally swing around to find your living room space with what looks like a wardrobe and a couch.

Swing around and you’ll see your living room area with a couch and a wardrobe. The place does only have one AC unit. I wonder how that works on hot summer days that we’ve been seeing. 

Wait a minute. 

Computer. Enhance. 

Hello there.

Hi, friend. The dog is not included but the listing says that the studio comes furnished. 

Don't worry. There is a necessity behind that barn door.

I’ve said it before, sliding barn doors are in this year. It does seem a little extra here, but it’s needed for what’s behind it. 

Behind that fancy barn door we get a peek at the bathroom.

The bathroom that has your standard fixtures as well as a walk-in shower and tile floor. 

It's a desk., It's a cabinet.

Right next to the bathroom you’ll find this hutch. Or is it a desk?

Nope. It's your bed.

Yes. It’s your bed. A Murphy Bed to be more exact. I can’t really tell from this photo but legs would definitely hang off the end of the bed. 

This is probably one this studio apartment's biggest selling points.

Then we get to this final piece of the studio apartment. It’s definitely cozy in a strawberry lemonade type of way. But will the rent topple that feeling?

The monthly rent is $1,000, according to the post on Craigslist. The listing is also on Zillow, which means it’s on the multiple listing service, so it’s legitimate. 

The address is undisclosed on both listings, but on Craigslist it says the apartment is not far from restaurants like Barbaro and La Fonda. 

Here’s the other kicker, with the security deposit, application fee, administrative fee (?) and first month’s rent due on move in, the first month’s payment is $2,500. 

Zumper says studio apartments in the Monte Vista go for an average of $799 a month.
