Hi all-

Great forum, have learned a lot searching through it. I'm very soon going to be calling Houston home, got a great job and relocating from Chicago. I need some help regarding the best way to find apartment rentals. I know there's CL, but are there any other places online I can look into? Also is it better just to pick a neighborhood and look for 'for rent' signs? I ask because this is how I found my current apartment. Lastly, is there a rental season? In Chicago many units are up for rent in May and August (goes with the school calendar) and I was wondering if Houston experiences anything like that.

For anyone still reading, any neighborhood suggestions are welcome. I'm looking for a 1BR, I'm in my mid thirties and will be working in the medical district. Not a yuppie probably lean more towards 'indie' type neighborhood. Pedestrian friendly would be nice, but I'm open to ideas. Montrose keeps popping up, anywhere else?
