Many landlords and apartment complexes utilize Craigslist as a place to advertise their properties for rent! Sometimes you can find a great “Move In” deal on Craigslist that you won’t be offered if you just visit the property.
Sometimes you can find a nice house or part of a house to rent that offers more than the typical apartment building. If you decide to go this route, make sure you ask about snow removal, utilities, parking, etc… as those are things that can add cost or inconvenience.
If you have questions or need advice about certain properties or locations, please do not hesitate to ask. This would be a good question for your Big Brother/Sister, or feel free to email Deb Killian for advice.
