Cheap housing is not easy to find in our current economy. When you are working on a low budget and you have bills and expenses to cover, single housing options are not a necessity that can be taken. When it comes to finding lodging while you are working, it becomes even harder since it is hard to find the time to go and look at a place properly. When considering the location as a criteria for proper lodging, like ease of transport, supermarket, gym and other facilities, the list becomes surprisingly short and constricted.Keep in mind your budget detailsOne of the main things to keep in mind is how much you can spend. When you are budgeting, try to keep all your expenses allocated for. Usually you end up saving a lot of money when you plan on going for your dream 1 bedroom apartment for rent in Dubai, but sometimes you cannot avoid your other bills from piling up. Plus sometimes emergencies do not have the habit of calling before arrival either. When you are saving up your money, it is recommended to have a separate bank account for the housing or keep a limitation on your regular spending habits.Get networking and acquaintingWhether you go through the newspaper advertisements or online advertising options, sometimes you will have to go through agents that will end up being a pain. In rare instances sometimes you are lucky enough not to go through an agent and find a good place to stay at without hassle. But usually best deals come through your family, friends and acquaintances. Besides when you go for this option you have the ability to get a better bargain price for your monthly 1 bedroom apartment for rent. The newest vacancies, or ones that have been looking for people for a while usually get through the grapevine faster than going through printed and online posted media. And sometimes landowners are much happier to give the place to someone they know than a random stranger.Usually smaller places will not have the space or the capacity to handle more than one person. Depending on your own ability stay with another human being for extended periods of time in a constricted place, you should think about a roommate. Instead of rooming with your friends (which will end up in disaster unless you have done sleepovers quite often), going for a mutual friend or someone who will be vouched for will be better. But most people prefer staying alone as it will be easier for taking care of the bills and other necessities without having to request more than once or twice.
