Oops. Forgot to mention that many 2-bedrooms go for around 600-650.
#Dave on Oct 28, 2016 :
I have lived in midtown and downtown Tucson for 15 years. Everything listed here is spot-on except for the rents. 1-bedrooms and studios for 450-550 are not uncommon. And you might only pay 75 for utilities, since often the landlord covers everything but electric and gas. However, downtown rents are going up in the last year or so, now that the trolley is running and downtown is bustling with expensive new restaurants and bars.

Cost of cable TV is much higher. In suburbs (Comcast) is around $70 for high speed internet only and nearer $90-$110 for internet and cable TV combined. Also, there is no allowance for vehicle maintenaance
#Palisades on Apr 12, 2016 :
You can definitely find somewhere in the city for less than 610 for rent lol

This helped with my budget planning a lot!

I found this a relatively useful page as someone with no real experience in budgets. Trying to plan my monthly expenses and a move it could stand to have a few extras for newbies like myself who are just getting started.
