Hi all! I had posted back last summer about potentially moving down to Orlando for grad school at UCF, and I'm excited to say I was accepted today and will be moving down from Boston this summer!

Though it's obviously extremely early, I was wondering if any of you could recommend some apartment/condo rental sites - since I'm concentrating on either downtown/Thornton Park or Waterford Lakes, I've checked out Olde Town Brokers - but any other sites to keep an eye on other than Craigslist would be helpful. Thanks!!

Try Apartmenthunters.com they helped me find my last place. Its a free service.They just ask that if you move into one of the places they sugest, you say you where refered by them. Guess that's how they make their money.

I found my place downtown through a real estate agent that 'specialized' in downtown condos/apartments – I just found her through a listing on Craigslist. I'd highly recommend getting in touch with someone that has an apartment listing you might be interested in and go from there. Since they often know about any rentals available by owner, you can spare yourself a lot of the dirty work.

Feel free to give me a shout if you want my personal recommendation on an agent.

You can check out Rentals.com for the most listings available, and craigslist can be worth a look. I may also be able to help checking out rentals around downtown.

You can check out My Orlando Home Expert Homepage (http://www.MyOrlandoHomeExpert.com - broken link) and click the search MLS button, then go to the option of searching rentals. For downtown zips 32801 and 32803, and for waterford, 32828, and near ucf 32826 and 32817 (not all of 32817 and 32826 is great though).

Thank you all so much! These suggestions help a lot. I haven't ruled out a complex but it's good to know that there are some resources for other types of places.
