Helloo all!!

I am moving to Austin in two weeks and I have been searching for a place to live, but I would like to see these places before I commit,but all short term places I have seen are a rip off.

My budget is a $1000 for a two bed fully furnished for 1 month, close as possible to city centre while I am house hunting....

on another note I have seen some nice apartments in the SE is that an ok area to live?

Any info would help alot!!!

Thanks..

Rental occupancies are at an all time high, so in terms of market conditions, they are probably NOT a rip off. Construction of new housing is way down for lack of financing. Lots of people are still moving to Austin and looking for rentals so what you are asking for is probably in short supply. Rental occupancies are currently 94-96%. Fully furnished properties are also even more rare in this market.

Some areas in SE Austin are questionable, but probably fine for a short term occupancy. Violent crime is low in all parts of Austin, property crimes are a bigger problem.

For a short term solution some parts of SE Austin would probably be fine. Lots of students tend to survive living there while in college, even though crime rates are higher then in other parts of town. If you could be more specific about what parts of SE Austin we could be more helpful.

Looking at rv campsite seems cheaper for very short term while im hunting.. Whats meadows lake like? The SE was where I saw for permanent place to live not any piticular area?

Thanks for helping out with info
