sorry links broken

ok so a studio is meant for one person, another phrase is an efficiency apartment --
https://en.wikipedia. org/wiki/Studio_apartment

multifamily would not be the same -- https://en.wikipedia. org/wiki/Multi-family_residential

im not sure if studios having different meaning in different states

  • what state or city or specific area would have the largest concentration (based on percentage) of studios? or what would be the best way of going about finding that out?
  • what would be the best source from there find rental pricing data?

Your distinction between studio and multifamily is off. A studio is an individual unit within a multi-family complex (the apartment building). Generally larger cities are more likely to have studios, tons of data on prices from apartments.com (owned by CoStar), etc.

im asking about efficiency apartments meant for 1 person

as with that defination of studio, the wiki has a diff def for 'studio' and this is my understanding that it's for 1 person

is there a link that shows studios means differently elsewhere?

A studio/efficiency are basically the same thing. You don't have a separate bedroom. Meant for one person. Usually kitchen it tiny, galley style. Mutifamily just means house or building that is broken up into multiple units.

ohhhh i see

so What places in the USA have the bottom 10% of prices to rent 1-person studio apartments for perfect quietness?

looking for quiet

studio that isn't attached to neighbors is best, dont trust neighbors, dont trust walls

or what easily accessible database would have this info?

what best solution do you recommend for studio + quietness?

maybe a database in here? wallstreetoasis. com/forums/studios-what-would-be-the-most-accurate-source-of-prices-and-rental-prices-for-studios-across

dont trust walls

I certainly wouldn't. Construction talent is at an all-time low - people hanging sheetrock on a major job and they've never done it before. Very untrustworthy walls.

Are you looking to buy or rent?

Apartments dot com is a good place to look for rentals.

it's not really showing much and hard to see the lower prices

likely easier to find out what places have quiet at lower costs

Bottom 10% of prices with perfect quietness. We logically have to rule out the ghetto because of the quietness factor (due to gun violence, police sirens, Gucci Mane blaring, etc), outside of the hood you might be able to find something in a small rural town in the south that gets you close.

I think your actual best bet is to get creative here. Have you considered going off the grid and just building a small shack/hut in the woods? Certainly going to be the best bang for your buck with excellent quietness minus occasional wildlife .

Excuse the double post but I also wanted to point out that this is also likely the best way to achieve no walls

has anyone look for a quiet place before?

anyone have any advice here on quietness?

I second this.

earplugs block out very little noise

tried all that

Aug 15, 2017

earplugs paired with a sound machine will block out anything

Jul 10, 2017

cant sleep with sound machine, makes noise


1- what are the most helpful room-finding sites you've used where you can filter by # of total rooms, such as '2 or less' or 'only studios'?

2 - what states or specific areas has the most studios per capita? or how to find this out?
