My move-in date is either the beginning of August or September, and my BF and I haven't yet decided on an area. (We've been looking at Pa, and now we're back to looking at Albany! lol It's crunch time!!!!) Is one of those dates better, I don't know if loads of new college kids move in over the Summer.

Or are great apartments available year-round? I do see tons of apartments available daily on Craigslist, and I'm not sure if what we'll looking for will always be there! (1 BR, up to $600/mo, pet friendly, at least H/HW inc., and on the bus line.)

BTW... If you know of a date before August, let me know! My time where I live is up in April, and I'm getting an extenstion, but can move out anytime, as long as it's the first. My BF just has some business to take care of, that finishes up in August, so he's stuck here until September, and I'm not to keen on moving to a new area by myself. But if it's a good time to move, then I will!!!!

Many of the the college kids will rent in May (stay, or sublease for summer) or end of Aug- they move in end of Aug- Labor Day. Pretty quiet while they are gone, but crazy when they get back. Craigs List is very popular and they go quick. Thats your best bet probably. Also try the Times Union newspaper- probably less so for "college kid" housing. Sorry, don't know the complex for your previous post. Unless you want the college area- believe its the Pine Hills section in Albany- beware. Are you looking to be right in the city? There are lots of nice areas for young professionals, but they end quickly into the bad ones, be careful.

Yeah, I've been looking at Craigslist. Although my BF and I are 23 and 25, we're not big on parties and noise! We're looking for a place on the bus line, and that's in a safe area. I use neighborhoodscout.com a LOT! Although you need to pay for the crime rates of specifc neighborhoods, you can still get a lot of great info for free. I just may post an ad that we're looking for an apartment for September. See if anyone replies...

Or maybe just move in begining of August. Beat the rush!
