Found a job in NH, need help finding a rental
« on: April 18, 2007, 06:30 PM NHFT »

Hey everyone, I've found a job in NH but I need some advice finding a place to live.  I've checked classifieds and those forrent websites (which suck).  I'm renting a house with three roommates right now and that works well so I'm up for anything.  Any advice will helpful and appreciated.  I'll be moving to Manchester area (or surrounding areas).
Thanks,
Ryan

When are you moving? 

I'm currently living in Manchester in a house with 7 other people.  I should be moving out soon, so that would be an option for you.  I've been looking at studio apts.  and there seem to be a few for ~700 with all utilities.  Also, Craigslist is a good place to start...

I'm always surprised that one of you doesn't rent a larger apartment or condo and rent out the rooms in that. Alec's is great - but it seems to be the only place in Manchester that newcomers can move to. I guess there is some rick to it - and maybe some landlords might have a problem with not knowing who is living in their rental - but it would seem like a great way to live in a less "congested" place that was more like a home.

It's funny because even though the house is full up, It's still nice and quiet in my room :) (well, aside from David's snoring ;)) Must be louder upstairs. Plus, if you were living in an attic, you'd probably want to move out, too...it's getting warmer....and so will the attic.

Some former roommates have gotten an apartment and become roommates in that. I think the reason most of us haven't done what Alec's doing is money--if we had more of it, we wouldn't be living at his place ;)
Also, it takes a special kind of sangfroid to be able to put up with strangers moving into your house, sharing common areas with them and then having them move out at a moments notice.
I'm not sure I would be into it. Anyhoo, if anyone else wants to do what Alec's doing, there are several buildings in the same neighborhood that are for sale...anyone up for a Free Ward Project?

I can't hear it over here. Too many walls in the way.

Maybe. But not in this ward, and not in the current housing market.

the current housing market.
This article is a little of the 'sky is falling' thinking.
Many of the things in it are true... however....I have been hearing about 'the bursting bubble' since I got in the mortgage business in 1998.  When I left it in 2000 I heard about it.... when I left CA in 2005 I was still hearing about it.  I guess someday they will be right.

It doesn't have to crash... it could just go down slowly.... and people who put no money down and have interest only loans .... sorry no sympathy from me.

Do you have a room for rent?   ;D

I talked to a guy who was thinking of getting a 3BR place but I think he declined because there's no way to know how often you'd have vacancies.  And who wants to pay for 2 extra bedrooms?  Rent is already ridiculously expensive...

I've done the "rent a room" thing at my house...during the last campaign. I also had a freind stay with me for a couple of weeks after her house burned down. I learned that I'm not so sure I am cut out for sharing my home with someone else. :) It's too bad, too, because that extra $$ was really nice. The time during the campaign wasn;t so bad because I was hardly ever home anyways. I'll probably offer the space again for the '08 elections.

I understand about the risks of renting someplace larger.....I guess it would have to depend on just how much more a larger place was. I would think that if a 2 floor, 3 br condo was $400 more a month, all you would have to have is one roommate to make ends meet....2 roommates and you save up for in case there is a gap down the road. It always seems that there are people looking for someplace to live when they get here. I've never seen anythiong beyond the main area in Alec's.....but it just reminds me too much like a college off-campus apartment.

I'm looking to move before the end of July, and I was hoping to rent a 3 or 4 br place to operate as another Porcupine Manor (to allow people to move in short-term). When there aren't people to rent, the additional room(s) could be used as offices or additional living space. But the other anchor of my plan just bailed, so I'm open to pretty much anything. Are you attending Porcupine Festival? Maybe we could meet up there.

James

ps. Craigslist is a good resource for finding a room.
