Apartment Hunting in Gainesville [Feb. 12th, 2014|11:04 am]

Hello! I'm currently a UF student living with a roommate in Frederick Gardens. Our lease is up in October, and while I know that's ages away, I'm looking for a new place. Without roommates. I have a full-time (but low-paying) job lined up for when I graduate in the Summer, so I'm looking for a place that's $650 or less a month with a decent kitchen and at least some amenities included. Frederick Gardens seems to be one of the best I've found price-wise and with amenities (the 2/1 I'm in right now is $580 with water and sewage included, total, that we split), but this model has a ridiculously small amount of kitchen counter space. (If it wasn't for the fact that there's no counter space, I'd try to get the same model. I think the 1/1's in FG run around $515 without any amenities, so I'd have more space and less bills for only $65 more a month.)

I've never had to pay for water, sewage, AND electric (so I'm assuming it's high), but I'll gladly accept any suggestions for a place with $525 or less a month, without roomies.

Are any of my expectations unrealistic?

Thank you so much for your help!

Unfortunately I think that might be hard to find. I had a 1 bedroom in bel-air off 6th for 585 but GRU is crazy. We never put the ac below 81 in the summer and never paid less than $180 for utilities...averaged $210 in the summer. I agree with the previous comment about checking craigslist. I hope you find something! :)
