I see casita's for rent a lot in the nextdoor.com neighborhood forum, but they go just as fast as when they list them. some are no more than $600-$700 a month. It's like renting a room, but better, because no one else will be going in there but the renter. No shared bathrooms. That alone is worth it.
Yeah I have spent 9 days now in my auntís casita, Sun City Anthem area, super nice and close to my house (maybe 7-8 minutes) and itís detached, walk in closet, nice bathroom and shower, kitchenette with small fridge and microwave plus sink, it has worked well for me and I bet something like this would be doable on a lower budget. But I can imagine they would go fast. My aunt is so nice to just let her friends and family use it when definitely she could use the extra income from a rental. But I guess other side of that is you have someone you donít need know on your property.

Like LVMensch said - I am getting a very good deal for the master bedroom. The two "suspects" both lie and have serious money problems. The new guy is constantly asking to do my laundry and hang it up for money.

If you cannot afford a pack of cigarettes, how are you going to pay your 500.00 rent?
I now have my own lockbox made of metal, and I am only giving the combination to law enforcement or the fire depatment.

The landlord and manager are always out of town and usually ignore my texts,emails, and phone calls.

I keep to myself and have no need to even be in the kitchen. My room has its own bathroom. I have a small fridge, a small freezer and a microwave.

I am not leaving this room or allowing any roommates in. I have everything I need and am not leaving the room until Monday morning. Camera set up also. Thanks for all the great advice.

My best friend lives in some apts right on Pecos & Lakemead. Cheap, like $550 a month for a 2 bedroom. 3rd floor.

IMHO it’s scetchy as hell, but he’s never had his vehicles broken into too. Only one run in with other tenants that I’m aware of in the 4 years he’s been there. I’m not sure if that’s the going rate still. He’s saving for a house and getting very close to his goal so in that regard it works.

These are directly on the Northeast corner of that intersection. Your literally 5 minutes to the base.

Can anyone tell me what the area around Craig and Commerce is like? I do have some idea since I have been
around there on the bus.

Actually it is not far from where I was staying. Just a little further East.

Closer to work for sure, but further east of where I was. I guess the honeymoon phase of my time here is past 870 to 890 and nothing included but water and trash. Although it is proportionate to my income which is roughly 60k.

I just couldn't risk my career because of an ignorant loser who lies about his job and car. Has neither.

He has nothing to lose and I have a lot to lose. My walking commute for the next two weeks is going to be nice.
