I just applied for this really great apartment yesterday and I will find out by the end of the week wether or not I get it, and I really want it. It has hard wood floors, it is a huge two bedroom, and I really want a place before school starts. So please send me good vibes in hopes that I get the place!!!! Thanks!!!

Bleh!

You won't be homeless, honey. Our little fingers reach out far and wide across this world of ours. Do you need some contacts in Berkeley to help out?

Unless you have some contacts that have a two bedroom apartment that isn't $2000 (I'm looking for one $1100 or less) a month, that want to rent to a pathetic soul like me no that's okay!!!!! I am staying in a one room place with my boyfriend, and his friend, and our guinea pig. It isn't even a one room apartment it is literally one room. Then we share a bathroom and a shower with like 60 other people. Well actually it is 4 showers and 8 bathrooms, but this morning when I was late for work because all the showers were full it felt like one shower!!!!! So technically I have a place to live, but it is not the right environment for when school starts. I don't know what the problem is, I work really hard both in school and on the job, I am putting myself through college and yet I just can't get a break. This place where we live is decent, but I am sick of the people there (they are not normal, I mean they are scary) and uggggghhhhhhh!!!!!!!! Anyways sorry to rant and rave!!!!! thanks for listening everyone!!!

I just found out why I didn't get the apartment. It isn't because I am not qualified it was because there were so many applicants that they did a lottery of the qualified people and I just wasn't lucky enough to get chosen. I hope that I have better luck next time. I did get good news though, my grandpa is going to pay for the warrenty on my computer and my school books for this semester (over $500) so that does help out a lot. Thought you guys might like to know why they were mean to me. Thanks again for listening.

sunflower, i too, have experienced the hell that is finding an apartment in Berkeley.

i think there might be a unit or two that is becoming vacant in my building, i'm a short walk to campus, downtown close to BART.

here's some advice i wish i'd known last year when i was searching, too.

1. the housing office at Channing and Bowditch!!!
2. ehousing.com if you are desperate
3. Reddy is a sketchy character, but sometimes, there's no choice.

reply if you want me to email you about this sort of stuff, i've helped a few folks get housing.

i think you're special ... and i don't mean that in a short bus kind of way

Sunflower just so you know i was trying to send good karma to you this whole time! We should have an online chat and just type in ::sends good vibes to Sunflower:: :P lol. If you go on campus or aroun campus you can see little newspaper stands and a lot of them have stuff for people looking for roomates, if you don't mind that. And in stores in/around the campus (like cofee shops and where they sell textbooks) there might be a bullitan board that you can advertise on or look for something. Well good luck!

Thanks you guys for the support!!!!!! Gumdrop I did not know that there was someone esle in here from Berkeley (except my friend that I told about this place!!!) I have tried Cal Rentals and I am on my second round with ehousing, I am avoiding ehousing as much as possible. It sounds like we live really close to each other at the moment I live on University near McDonald's!!!!!! Thank you Pixie for the good karma!!!!! Yeah I have tried the postings and stuff, but a roomate isn't really an option because I am looking for a place for my boyfriend and myself, and possibly with a friend of his, so we have all the roomates that we need!!!!! Thanks you guys for your love and support.

Okay guys, new update!!!!!!! Well now I am trying to get this two bedroom townhouse that is really nice. It is $1000 a month and I went and saw the inside on Friday. It is not as big as I would like it to be, but it is still a nice place. The only big problem that I see with it is that there isn't a laundromat anywhere near to there, but I guess that I can just get on a more regular schedule of doing laundry and make it a weekend thing!!!!!!

I submitted a 17 page application today and then just got a call that they need two more pages, can you believe it? They are reviewing the applications tomorrow morning so everybody wish me luck.
It took me over three hours to get everything together and I just hope to get it!!!!! Thanks for listening guys!!!

Sunflower, yup, I'm right down the street from you, and I'd almost bet money we've passed on the street. I've also noticed a few other Berkeley folks on this board.

Good luck on the housing (and laundromats). I'm guessing you found a place Northside? If not, 2117 Haste is leasing. It's not where I live, but close. And if all else fails, I swear the Housing Office at Channing and Bowditch is your best best for cheap and thorough listings.
