I am considereing moving to one of these areas but can find little info on the internet regarding rentals. Currently live in Colorado and trying to line up places to go check out. Any suggestions are how I can lengthen my list of places to consider. (apt.) Thanks in advance for your help.

We are not ignoring you. Check the classified section of the Bangor Daily News. Also check Uncle Henry's on line. I figured somebody from those towns might chime in before this. The best way to find an economical apartment is to go to the town and ask in a coffee shop.

Thank You. I had pretty much come to the coffee shop conclusion myself when no one responded.

Try to give yourself plenty of time to find a place. I admit when I read your OP, I thought "the same way you find an apartment anywhere in Maine, why not search the threads already on the forum." Boots on the ground or hiney in the car sometimes works....look for "For Rent" signs. There's nothing wrong with going to the local coffee shop and asking. There seems to be a fear of Craig's List, but I would take a look. There are plenty of ads in local newspapers. Some real estate agents/property management businesses handle apartment rentals. I saw a rental in Bucksport while out walking. Google is your friend....sometimes anyway.

thx. I plan to exhaust every avenue since I only have one week to find a place. I am anxious to move, need a change of scenery.

Default Moved to Belfast a year ago

I moved to Belfast in August 2011. I found my apartment on Craigslist sight-unseen and have had no problems. Most of the ads had photos attached, and my landlord e-mailed me additional pics. We also spoke over the phone, and he gave me phone numbers of current tenants as references. Another good source is the Village Soup paper, which is on the web and has accessible classifieds online. (Belfast is in Waldo County.) Apartments are in short supply, but many renters are transient, so you might have to settle for something not ideal, but you can look around for something else once you've gotten here. Tip: call the Public Works Dept. at City Hall if you plan to drive everyday in the area, since some streets are plowed by the city as soon as the snow starts falling. Main Street is one, and I think the route to the Hospital is another.
