Finding a Place

It’s not about the house: it’s the experience

Remember, there’s not a big correlation between the amount of money you spend on your place and how happy you are with your college experience.

It could be argued that there’s a negative correlation. After all, the more money you spend on your living situation, the less money you have to spend on everything else.

So make sure that you set a budget on how much you can afford before beginning your search.

And remember: just because you can spend a certain amount of money on a place doesn’t mean you should. Your budget tells you what the maximum amount is that you can spend on something, not how much you have to spend.

If you follow these tips, you’ll end up with the best of both worlds: a place you love to live in and friends you still love at the end of the year.
