Very limited budget...

I am to be a student of UTA, wondering what is the price range of the off-campus living.

Or where can I find that information?

Please please give me some advice.

Thanks!!!

There are plenty of apartments around UTA. I would think the school would be able to give you some quick leads. I am sure they are running all kinds of specials now.

You might want to go to UTA and look for flyers for people looking for roommates or to rent out rooms. My husband and I rented out a room at our house while I was in school there, and it was a good experience overall.

Thanks!
Searching from the on-campus flyers should be a great way. And room sharing do seem to be the best option for my budget.
The problem is now I am out-of-state. I am not sure if one day or two in hotel could allow myself enough time to choose the right roommate. I was trying to pick out a place before I actually fly to Texas. I checked craigslist but little information around Arlington.
Grainraiser, you are right. I should contact the school office to see if they have any options for me.

And maybe UTA has its school newspaper online...I can do some research on that.

Go

Good ideas. I would check with the school office about options and see If you can find any ads for people needing roommates. Also, there is a TON of apartment complexes in Arlington. Hope this helps!

Check out the Pinewoods apartments. VERY close to school (walking distance) cheap (I think like a lil over $500 all bills paid) roomy like a lil over 700 square feet.

Just in case you haven't found the school paper it is called The Shorthorn. Here is the link.

Trevor, please check out the ToS. It's on top of each sub-category, kinda hard to miss. This is your 5th solicitation in like 30 minutes. If you plan to bump up all the threads where you can plug your services, you'll be here all night and the mods will likely have lots of homework. We have several active Realtors on the Dallas site and I've personally learned a lot from them. But I imagine few potential clients will take you seriously if all you contribute is a phone number and links to your apt finder business.

Real Estate Agents and other businesses will not advertise their services nor solicit business in their posts. Create a free business profile by going to http://www.city-data.com/profiles/add and fill out your forum profile instead. Do not include links to your websites, MLS listings, etc. in your posts. Do not try to push the envelope by attempting to hide your intentions. Do not solicit business by DMs. Show your knowledge about the area and help people and you will get leads naturally. Real estate agents should join the usergroup for them here: http://www.city-data.com/forum/profi...editusergroups. It will set your user title and add an icon next to your name, so you will get free advertising with your posts.

I found some places, one in particular looked good. It is called Maison Rocher and the price is great and so is the space. Hurry as I'm sure they are selling out!
www.maisonrocher.tripod.com/ (broken link)

I also found some amazing information regarding apartments in Arlington.
http://www.arlingtontx.gov/codecompliance/pdf/apiscores.pdf
http://www.arlingtontx.gov/codecompliance/pdf/apiscores_checklist.pdf

These are two extremely valuable links for evaluating apartment properties in Arlington, TX. They basically go in and inspect the properties and give it a rating from 100 on down based on the checklist. The lowest score I found was a NEGATIVE -44!!

I posted on here a while ago asking for advice on moving to Arlington from Omaha on a very limited budget. I asked how was the community, places to watch out for, crime stats and so forth. I got some good feedback and so I thought that I would go ahead and help out anyone else. I used apartmentguide.com to find the complexes that had what I was looking for, then cross-referenced them with apartmentratings.com. The place I am now renting scored a 95.0.

Let me know if this helps!
