I've lived in the same dorm for all four years here at college for a number of reasons. Although I definitely don't regret it at all, it has left me with a need for some experience with apartment hunting. Here are some things I've learned:
- Having enough space -> higher rent
- Signing convenient length leases -> higher rent
- Moving in when is best for you -> higher rent
- On Craigslist, 420 = cannabis
I'll make another post when I make some more progress. If you have any tips in the meantime, please share!
