I'll answer since no one else has. If you're strictly looking in Waukesha, there are now many resources via the internet and sometimes rental packets that you can find for free at stands.
I understand that you're looking for a lower price, but I would urge you to do some background checking on the apartment you're interested in. Check the area out on a Friday night to see whether it's reasonably peaceful or not.
Good morning Emily,
To answer your question, my professional advice to you is no you do not need to hire a realtor. If you are from Eagle, you probably already know there is not much available for apartments there. I'm also from the area so if you need help in knowing what apartment complexes are out there in the surrounding areas such as Mukwonago, East Troy and North Prairie I can help. From there you can check with the rental agencies to see if there are any units available and when. If interested, please give me a call and we can go from there. Thank you.... more
