KAMLOOPS - After a recent report suggested more rental apartments are available in Kamloops, we simply wanted to see what an average apartment looks like. But trolling through some online ads showed that money means nothing when it comes to choosing a room mate.

By simple math, the cheapest two-bedroom apartment available on Kamloops Kijiji could be yours for $725 a month. If your budget is unlimited, perhaps the most expensive penthouse in town will be your new abode for a mere $2,400 per month. Or you could settle for a cheaper upscale place across from TRU for $600 less.

Looking for tenants? These three are looking for a place that "isn't in a crackhead neighbourhood.' They are unspecific about those neighbourhoods so crackheads, at the very least, need not inquire.

Or if you contacted these students, you could have high achievers living downstairs in your basement.

If you're looking for a room mate, Vince will hook you up. He's brutally honest about his palace and the room mate he doesn't want. He likes dragons, just so long as they have a job, apparently. 

Are you 'stable?' Try joining these other stable folks although they seem confused about what the future holds.

Ladies, if you're into Game of Thrones, Harry Potter, karaoke and cards against humanity tournaments, then look no further - welcome home. 

Should you decide to forgo the roommate options and get a pad of your own, here is what $858 in Kamloops will get you:
