Okay, now that I have my consumer debt taken care of, it looks, with very good probability, that I'll finally be moving out in a few months. I'm planning on having my own apartment by May 31st. However, I do have a couple questions: 1. What are some good apartment rental sites? I'm looking for apartments in Orange County (more specifically Huntington Beach, Fountain Valley, Garden Grove, Cypress, Costa Mesa, and Westminster). What are the probabilities of finding a Studio Apartment for around $600 - $700 per month in these areas? I'd love to live in Huntington Beach but it seems like Studios are upwards of $900/mo or more in that area. My income at the moment cannot support rent that high. 2. What is the best way to find an excellent deal on an apartment without having to drive around for hours looking for them? I work full time and that leaves only the Weekends and early morning hours to look for an apartment. Unfortunately, that doesn't leave much time for me to look at apartments. Plus, some apartment offices are closed on the weekends. Is there such a thing as an apartment rental finding service? What should I look for in such a service? 3. What are your tips for finding the perfect apartment with the least hassle and the most satisfaction? 4. What do I need to look for when looking at apartments for rent? What kind of problems should I check for so that I'm not surprised (or get renter's remorse) later? What should I plan for (financially and otherwise) while searching for an apartment? Man, I'm excited, but I would like some facts and objectivity surrounding my decision. I don't want to walk in, sign the papers, and find that I'm paying through the nose for a crappy place. Thanks to everyone in advance for their help!
