Important Considerations for the Housing Search Process
Use caution when using sites such as CraigsList to search for housing. Although these resources may offer great opportunities, some listings may be scams. If something seems too good to be true, it probably is!
When considering housing options, please consider the following suggestions:
- Never send money without having viewed the property and signed a contract.
Bring someone else with you to look at properties you’re considering.
In addition to the housing itself, be sure to consider the neighborhood, too. Take neighboring areas into account, as you may travel through nearby sections of the city during your commute to work.
