You want to get the most bang for your buck when it comes to rent, but you still want to be close to all of the great amenities that Central Florida has to offer. Whether you’re looking for local restaurants, shopping, or waterfront views, you don’t want your rent to break the bank. So let’s look at a few options for affordable rent:


Orlando—the city that holds Walt Disney World and Universal Studios—who could forget? Though Orlando is known to have relatively pricey rent, there are actually neighborhoods that are affordable, safe, and just as bustling as downtown.


Conway is just a few miles southeast of downtown Orlando. You get all of the great eats, shopping experiences, and the hustle and bustle of downtown Orlando while being able to actually afford your rent. It’s a quaint suburb, but the community is rising with a bustle of its own. Compared to neighboring communities, the rent is completely do-able. It’s far enough from downtown to feel safe and secure, yet close enough for convenience and a great night out on the town. Public transportation: check. Local and boutique shopping: check. Variety of cuisines to try: check. Conway isn’t downtown Orlando, but its close enough and affordable enough to be your new home with great residential neighborhoods and lakeside views, so be sure to check it out.


Clermont is a beautiful city around 20 miles west of Orlando. It’s known as the “gem of the hills” because of its awesome landscape. With views like these, you’ll want to discover what kind of rent you’re working with in Clermont neighborhoods.

Four Corners

Who wants affordable living in a tourist town? Everyone, we’d assume. Four Corners houses luxurious resorts and spas with a touristy-feel, while having great apartments that won’t bankrupt you. Four Corners is close to Walt Disney World and not too far from downtown Orlando, so you really get the best of both worlds. In Four Corners, you’re living in a resort-like suburb with affordable prices, yet  close enough to famous theme parks and a bustling downtown. Compared to other parts of Central Florida, Four Corners has a relatively low cost of living with lake views, wooded and hilly landscapes, and incredible eateries around town.
