Hi, Melanie. The school may offer a list of people willing to rent to students. That would be a great place to start.

As far as renting a room vs an apartment is probably a matter of preference for your friend. Will he be comfortable living with strangers? Is he more comfortable living alone? He needs to determine his budget and compare the cost of an apartment with renting a room.

All my best,
Dot Chance

Hello Cruse-Co,

Is sounds like you are referring to a specific house. From the description such a house would rent for $6000 plus a month.
adjacent lot (buildable lot) Lots 37 & 38 in map book. Doesn't tell me what the address is. Is this a home also for sale?

This area is not only visited by many tourists each year, but it is one of the hottest areas in the eastern Hollywood Hills to live. The homes vary quite a bit with regard to style and year, but mid-century moderns are in great demand
over any other at this time. Many owners have renovated them to look as sleek and stylish as when they were first
designed and built. The average price at this time is $10,000 a month with a security deposit of $20,000.

In LA ...or anywhere, it's all about who you know. Maybe you know a couple who decides to move somewhere else
for a while and needs someone they know to take care of their home. So you, being that special someone, get to
live in this amazing place for only a fraction of the market rate! Until you meet that giving couple, I'm here to find and negotiate the right home, at the right price and of course, the right location for your life style.

Question too vague but let us say this. Buying now is a good idea with record low interest rates and if you need a tax deduction. But ROI is usually long-term, not short-term. http://www.naplesrealestateguys.com/blog/ ... more
