PRIVATE HOME: 1016 W Nob Hill Blvd
2 bedrooms and 1 bath for this quaint abode located right on Nob Hill. Close to coffee shops, car washes, a dollar store, Wray's Thriftway on 3rd Ave & W Nob Hill Blvd, and an assortment of other shopping you need to get done. The owners made note that this house is only available for a 10-month lease. I guess you have to kick yourself out after Month #10! Ha! $995 per month. You MUST have good credit, no evictions on your record, and an established rental history.
PRIVATE HOME: 3107 Castlevale Rd #1
Yikes, the cheapest 2-bedroom home available to rent on Craigslist will run you a pretty penny at $1,100 a month! The owners are describing it as an "open concept 2-bedroom". It's worth checking out this listing here. You'll have to pay a hefty damage deposit ($1,000). Don't even THINK about having any pets (dogs) over 30 lbs. Central air and heating, so that's a good thing. You'll have to pay all the utilities, so I'm guessing that includes water, sewage, and gas. There is a DISHWASHER, fireplace, hardwood floors and a fenced-in yard! Ahhh, c'est la vie! (Pet deposit fee is $300 and the criminal background/credit check fee will be 70 bucks, by the way.)
