This Is What $500 A Month In Rent Would Get You In Cities All Around The World

 

How much do you really need to spend each month for rent? Globalization was supposed to bring some level of harmony and parity to consumer prices around the world; in reality, however, the cost of living has been increasing across many cities. Still, when it comes to finding affordable places to rent, a little research can go a long way.

Paris is often considered to be an expensive European city, and the same could be said about Berlin and Barcelona; however, there are still places that can be rented for about $500 a month in those two cities. In fact, $488 per month is all it takes to rent a small studio in the central district of Barcelona, and this includes all utilities. For $50 more a month, you can rent a furnished one-bedroom flat in Berlin in a modern and stylish building.

The cost of living in Barcelona, Berlin and Paris may be high, but these are cities where rent is not the greatest monthly expense. Tenants in most metropolitan areas of the United States are used to paying high rents, but there are some exceptions. For example, you can share a large home in a historic district of Austin for $500 a month, with all utilities included.
