Milepost 5 is an affordable housing community for creatives, developed for working artists of all disciplines. Located on a two-acre campus in Portland’s Montavilla neighborhood, our community of over 100 renters work in dozens of artistic fields. Residents host monthly art openings, present plays, music, readings, workshops, and other events in the community spaces. While about half of the units feature their own bathroom en suite, the other half of the units have dorm-style bathrooms located throughout the building. The units all have shared kitchens, which are located on both the second and third floors. The building has a laundry room with coin-operated machines, a workshop for working on small projects, galleries, and community gardens. Public transportation is readily available by light rail or many bus lines. Income restrictions apply and are determined via the Portland Housing Bureau's guide for 60% of the area median income.

What to keep in mind when looking for apartments under $1,000 in Portland, OR

Finding a deal on affordable apartments under $1,000 in Portland is worth the extra effort. Come ready to pounce on the best deals. Call the property management in advance to ask what paperwork they need and come prepared. Bank statements, pay stubs, identification, and letters of recommendation from an employer or landlord are usually standard. It’s better to come to an apartment tour over-prepared and ready to sign.

You probably won’t find affordable apartments under $1,000 in Portland in the heart of the action, but you can still land in a neighborhood you love. Look for locations on the outskirts of your dream location or reconsider how much space you really need. A studio apartment may offer plenty of space in your ideal neighborhood at a cheaper price point.

Some property managers will also know about apartments under $1,000 in other buildings they manage, or through word-of-mouth from industry contacts. Ask about any leads if you can’t find the space you need. Touring the first floor for affordable apartments that need some updating can also yield a great deal.
