I have been looking at Craigslist for apartments but am stuck because no landlord will secure a lease this far in advance. Is this a problem that many of you are facing? Should I just wait until a month or two before Im ready to move to Cleveland?
Monday I was told that we will be receiving information about a housing fair the school will host in June. I can't remember the dates, but there will be a lot of landlords there. There are a TON of apartments around campus, and I think landlords get scared in May when 1/4 of the students move out and there's no one to rent to until August. I've seen a few places say "first month free with 13 month lease" and when I called they said that was a special for anyone who moved in before the end of July, lol. No one seems to rent between May and July, so landlords seem to be frantic to get someone in during those months. Once June & July roll around, I think they will be a little easier to deal with... I hope.
gotcha. thanks for the info!
