Hi,
I am considering moving to Norfolk (got accepted to a PhD program at ODU). I don’t know much about the area but I’ve found out on the internet that is pretty expensive compare with NC (Winston Salem) where I currently live. I am interested in renting a 1bedroom apartment in an area (no more than 700$/month, friendly area, safe) close to ODU (let’s say no more than 15 minute driving). Could anyone give me any suggestions what to look for and where? I will basically make a decision if I move to Norfolk based on the housing situation.



Thanks a lot!

Not sure what kind of person you are, like super quiet all the time or work hard but know how have a good time type but aside from that, I personally think $700 will work best with roommates. If you desire to be close to campus. As a general rule, this area is kind of pricey if you want a decent place not in the ghetto.
I'd say drive around the neighborhood some here, look for the RENT SIGNS, write some numbers down and go from there. I have seen a couple in my neighborhood. My neighbor has had a 1BR for rent for a few weeks now and it is $600 Sewage and Trash included. You pay Electric/Gas, Internet/Cable. I have seen some more in my neighborhood as well when I skate or walk. I live appx. 5 minutes from ODU. I found my place in the Virginia Pilot btw.
