Hi Ipotorski:

I would suggest you simply look for an apartment the way any home seeker would. You may have to explain your past transgressions to landlords who do criminal checks, so you probably will do best to just mention it upfront and answer any questions before you schedule appointments. But Boulder is generally a pretty reasonable community and marijuana is not really a big issue here, so, unless your run-ins with the law were also violent or involved some other form of crime, I would guess you will find your next residence without too much extra trouble.

The blog post below offers some good search engines that may help you find what you are looking for.

Good Luck!

Hi Ali,

There are some great answers to your questions below. However, I would say that the timeline for you to begin searching for a studio to rent depends on what part of town you would like to live in. For example, if you are looking to be close to campus or downtown, the sooner the better. However, if you are open to renting in North or South Boulder you will usually have a little better chance of reserving something without looking 6-8 months ahead. It all depends on supply and demand. I would also suggest hiring a rental specialist to assist you in your search. Most real estate companies have at least one person that specializes in property management and they would be a great resource for information too. Good luck!

The searches at the blog post below seem to be the best ones for people looking for rentals in Boulder. One extra suggestion. I think a lot of people miss the sublet/temporary category under housing on Craigslist. It can be worth a look. If none of these links work for you, give me a call and I can put you in contact with property managers who might have something. (Not to mention John at Housing Helpers who posted earlier.)

Hi Ali!
I am an CU Boulder Alumni and have a senior there too! I understand the dilemma you are facing in the Boulder rental market. You need to have your deposit money ready January 1st to sign a lease to begin Aug. 2014. Start shopping in mid November to be an early bird, but Jan. 1st things are hopping.

I congratulate you for being so proactive in asking this question! It usually sneaks up on people...
There are a lot of resources provided by the University and bulletin boards along with the online ones http://ralphieslist.colorado.edu/ and http://ocss.colorado.edu/

Good luck!

Hi Kevirose,
It is reasonable to find a 2-bedroom apartment or condo in the $1700 price range in this area. However single family homes for rent in this area are currently hard to come by in this price range. Typically we see those going for over $2k. The rental market is moving very quickly in Boulder right now so the properties do not last long. The Shining Mountain Waldorf School is located in the 80304 zip code. You can visit our website http://www.housinghelpers.com and type in the zip code 80304 on the home page search for rentals and it will bring up a list of currently available rental properties near the SMW school. We are also available to track listings for you and let you know when something hits the rental market in the 80304 area. Let us know if you have any questions. Thanks.

Hi Zackilsch:

I was wondering if you had any success finding a good rental. For you and others interested in renting here in the Boulder/Denver area, I just had a client tell me she had by far the best luck with the rental tools right here on Trulia. Said Trulia was the best among the rental reach engines by far!

Bob Gordon answered:
I'm curious. Are you looking to rent the entire property to a third party or merely a room while you also reside therein? I ask, because on of the great values to real estate is depreciation. This can really make a rental property cash flow. I would recommend researching the ability to depreciate the property with your status. Additionally, you may want to see what taxes, if any, you will have your country of origin. After all, while your student status is one thing for US income, any rental income is likely another matter in terms of filing your own personal taxes where you live. ... more
