@katherin788:  My SO and I are “always hunting”. We are currently on a month-to-month basis in our apartment, so we’re always keeping an eye out for something better. In this market, it seems impossible to find! We’re in Chicago, so the rent is more manageable, but one of our closes friends just moved back to New York. She’s in Brooklyn and loving how much more space she can get for her money. Good luck to you and your SO!

@katherin788:  We are in the DC metro area, so I can sympathize with price – although it’s not quite as bad here.  We are moving when our lease is up in May, but we almost broke it earlier this year…so I have a small compulsion to CONSTANTLY look and look and look due to how unhappy we are where we’re at.  FI thinks it’s turning into an unhealthy obsession…but yes it’s frustrating!!

@katherin788:  I don’t know how good it is in your area but hotpads.com helped us find a place in downtown Orlando.  It compiles multiple listing sites like craigslist and MLS into one place.  You can search by city/zip code or by map.

We used to live in NYC so I totally understand your frustrations. Where are you looking? Any of the outer boroughs or just Manhattan? We lived in Manhattan for a while, then moved to Westchester for a few years. It’s tough (and super expensive!) out there… Good luck!
