That's how it is in Tampa anyway, should be similar in the Orlando area. Remember to budget for absurd elec. bills in the summer. I'd say find a decent 1br/1ba for no more than $650/month.
doink is pretty much spot on. though if you do look around, there are bargains to be had. i used to live in a pretty nice 2br duplex in the college park area for $550, no long term contract. lots of the older neighborhoods in the downtown/winter park area are kind of pricey, but every once in a while you stumble across that odd person just looking for someone long term/steady, and you find a deal. things are also a good bit cheaper in the outlying developing areas - in the rosemont area, you can get a nice apartment for $5-600, though it is bordering on areas that could be termed "ghetto". anything in the dr. phillips/metrowest/kirkman road/buena vista area is going to be $$$$ and packed with retarded yuppies. some areas of altamonte and nicer areas of apopka might be places to look too, but then you're about 10-20 miles out of orlando proper.

welcome to the land of low wages and steadily increasing costs of living! look out SoCal!
