Try looking a hair further away from campus, especially toward the Burns Park area which tends to be a bit more residential. Also, if you can, try and find small-scale renters, they'll likely be more willing to negotiate on that.
Thanks for the suggestions! Any idea where online to find any of this? I'm not able to go back to check places out for a few months.
Oof. I knew that question was coming next, and I kind of avoided it mostly because, even as a native, I have trouble tracking down those kind of properties. I know mlive.com has listings. I've never had any success with ann arbor craigslist, but it's worth keeping an eye out. When I was living there I would wander around and just call the numbers listed on the rental signs on houses, but obviously thats not an option. This is kind of a lot of legwork, but it might be worth trying to hit up some of the subletters and asking who owns the property, and calling around.
I know there are a couple other ann arborites who're here, hopefully one of them will chime in with other suggestions!
It's tough. I was looking for a place that would allow me to get a dog, but had a hell of a time finding pet friendly options in general. You could check out cribspot.com, a newish site that seems to be accurate (I think). Generally, though, you'll have to look farther off campus to find what you're looking for. Cappo/Deinco is usually good about pets, at least from what I've seen. The biggest issue you'll have, though, is that most places on campus were rented back in November/December, because that's how the cycle works here. So, you're looking for an uncommon feature in a sparse market at this point. Again, looking farther off of campus will probably be your best bet, at least for the upcoming year. Then, you can look again in November to see what the area really has available.
