We recommend that you start looking for housing even before you arrive in the U.S. You will need time to figure out what will work best for you. It is best to not wait until the last minute to find an apartment. Below are some suggestions for housing that we know through connections.
Properties looking for tenants
This is a duplex with 8 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms: 5BR 1BA upstairs and 3BR 2BA downstairs.
2017 montly rent is set at $3200, which is $400 per bedroom.
This one rents well as two separate units.
2017 monthly rent is set at $2000 for each unit, which is $500 per bedroom unless the 5th room in each is occupied, making it only $400 per bedroom.
Note about both duplexes: WiFi would be installed by the landlord at no cost; TV and cable and some general furniture for the bedrooms and living rooms could be added upon request.
