College life can be overwhelming, especially when you’re trying to do it all on a limited budget. You have so many other more important things to focus on, like getting good grades and trying to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Of course, if you can find something affordable them that definitely helps, so there’s a quick and easy solution.
You can use our site and search tool to find a cheap new home with ease! This search tool allows users to narrow down their search by over 300 different criteria to choose from rent cost, number of bedrooms, and if it has the community amenities you desire. All you have to do to get started is click “Search Now” and then down on left-hand side you’ll see the different criteria. Go to the section that says “Rent Per Month” and slide the bar to fit the amount of rent you can afford per month and the site will automatically limit the options to the complexes to options where the amount of rent specified is available.
There are also other ways to be able to have a luxury unit while still saving money. Consider roommates. I know that might be scary to think you’d be living with someone you barely know or you might be thinking that you don’t know anyone to room with, but a lot of complexes offer roommate matching to be able to help you find a great person with which to share your new home. Also a lot of communities have access to city bus routes so if you have to, you can look for a complex a little further away but just hop onto the bus and take that to campus.
