It has been my experience that most of the best deals you will find on apnmtreats are not listed in the newspaper. I found my apartment while driving around my new neighborhood, I saw a sign in the window apartment for rent. It's been 8 years and I have been very happy, and my rent hasn't increased more than 25.00 pm! If your looking to buy, it's a whole different ball game. First you need to decide what you can afford, and then you need to either get a real estate agent, or at least talk with a few if you plan on doing the search yourself! Try the Internet..yahoo has up to date real estate listings that let you determine the criteria.Good Luck!
