  • Cheap 1 Bed/ Studio Opinions!!
    You can find places that rent by the room, where you'll most likely be sharing a house or apartment with a few other people, sometimes other students, sometimes just people that are already working in their field. Don't bother checking or or any of that, which is just a bunch of expensive housing and nothing really by individual owners. If you live in the area, I recommend walking around... - Source: Reddit / 5 months ago
  • SCAM ALERT: "Access Point" listings on Zillow, Craigslist, etc.
    Searching "85 3rd St. APT 3, Cambridge, MA 02141" brings up no historical,, etc. Pages of the unit. There are pages on those websites for this unit, but the page was created/updated on the same day that the unit was listed on Zillow/Craigslist, making me think the scammer is trying to cover their tracks and bring some evidence on to their side that the unit is accurately represented. - Source: Reddit / 6 months ago
