With the rental market finally settling down and one-bedroom rents hovering around $1,550, we wondered what that sum would rent you in Philadelphia these days. These three properties offer options throughout the city at $1,500 or less.

Tell me all about it: To start, we love the curb appeal on this West Philadelphia Victorian. This one-bedroom apartment ticks a lot of boxes, including private laundry, loads of windows, central air and a giant (shared) back yard. We also love the decorative fireplace in the bedroom.
