Default Apartment tips.

It looks as though my room mate might be moving out of state for a better job. this kind of leaves me in a hard spot here. I'm getting married in a little over a year so i can't commit to a new room mate long term. Even if i could, i don't know anyone who i could room with. Does anyone have any tips for finding a cheap (less then $500 a month) apartment or know of any good places in the Rochester/Troy (Michigan) area?

Can you move in with your GF? That first year together is usually the dealbreaker; if you can get thru that then you know your ready to commit to each other.

trust me. won't do that.

not only would both of our parents not approve but she has to finish school and student teach up in Mount Pleasant. once the lease is up on her apartment up there we'll be getting married and moving in together anyhow. I need to find something to get me through in the mean time.

Less than $500 in Troy or Rochester...

I'd look in the Oakland Press for renting a room from someone. You can usually rent a room in this area for ~$300 a month.

never thought of craiglist before... i'll look into that

Also, i MIGHT be able to do that but with Sara not knowing where she'll have to work at once shes done with student teaching I would be taking a gamble that it isn't a huge distance for her to drive to work. other then that as long as i can afford the downpayment and monthlys then i'll be good.
