Hi all,

I've been monitoring the inner loop apartment market for 4 months now and I've yet to find that one gem. I'm looking for a 1bdrm around $1200, at least 750sq ft. Prefer updated, clean interiors and central AC in a walkable area. I'm struggling with how to find apartments in Montrose and Rice Village. I've scoured all the big box complexes, but they aren't really in Montrose proper or Rice Village. Where do people look for apartments in these neighborhoods? Driving around I'm not seeing many for lease signs. By "Rice Village" I mean within walking distance of either Rice U or the Village (also including areas such as Northhampton), rather than the big boxes you see on Holcombe and such. I really don't see much worthwhile on Har.com or Craigslist, but I'd really like to live in these neighborhoods.

Any leads, advice appreciated. Thanks!

You've gotta get out and walk the neighborhoods and perhaps have a friend or two on the look out for available places.

I agree with the above. You have to get out and walk and have some help watching. When I moved out of my apartment in Montrose (I bought a house), my LL literally had it rented the day after I gave notice because he had a waiting list.
