Recent Questions:
Q : As a college student, I have a limited budget. How do I find apartments in Houston that won't break the bank?

A : The best way to find apartments that won't break the bank are to find apartments that either have individual leases or have more than one bedroom. Sharing the lease with multiple people can lower your rent a lot! Individual leases make it easy if you don't know who to live with and aren't very expensive. There are plenty of Houston apartments with rent under $500 and there are even some under $400. Some of the least expensive apartments include Braebum Colony Apartment Homes, Discoll Place, and Somerset. Just remember, the more people who share the apartment, the lower the rent will be. Hope this helps you with your apartment search.
