SA Housing Swap Thread

Many of us will be working in different cities. Rather than find a place to rent in an unfamiliar housing market while wasting money storing furniture or subletting your apartment to some college student who will probably trash it, I hope that some of us can use this thread to trade apartments and save time and money.

(Not sure where this belongs, legal employment seemed relevant)

DC Place available. U Street area near great nightlife, 1 block walk to Green/Yellow Line.

3 story beautiful rowhouse, with nice backyard with outdoor furniture and grill.

4 bedrooms, and at least 3 of them are available for the summer. Prefer subletting to other law student types.


Also, I'm looking for NYC, like everyone else.

Looking for south Bay area/Silicon Valley, preferably for $1000 or less.

Doubtful that anyone will need it, but, I have a place in Cleveland, and I'm looking for DC. And I have a cat - which I say because apparently most places in DC are not pet friendly.

Also, might I suggest instead of straight apartment swaps, we just use this as an availability thread? You know, you might sublet from one person, but sublet your place to another.

Looking for sublet in San Francisco. Not sure if I will be able to do a swap, lease is expiring and might move. However, would be happy to try to help you find something else if needed. I live in LA, 20-30 to downtown.

I have a 2 bedroom apt available in Boston right on the green line. Alternatively, you could rent just one room. Perfect location at Harvard Ave, near all the best restaurants. Hardwood floors, spacious, great natural lighting, and pet friendly.

I'm looking for a place in Chicago.

Have a two bedroom apt in Chicago. 1100+ sq feet, two bathrooms, and a ton of closet space. Lots of natural light (seven very large windows throughout the apt). Roughly a half-hour commute on public transit to get downtown, but less than fifteen minutes if you have a car. Building has a fitness center, parking garage, restaurant (that delivers to the rooms), convenience store, doorman, (I'm sure some other things I'm not thinking of), and very easy access to the path along the lake (perfect for running or biking).

Looking for a place in NYC with easy access to midtown.

I have a great 1BR in Boston. 2min walk to B and C line, 10min walk to Fenway Park, 15min walk to Coolidge Corner. Commute to downtown would be 20-30mins door to door.

I am looking for a place in Orange County, CA. Ideally a 1BR apartment, but I'd be down for a single room in a 2-3BR place.

Please note, a SWAP IS NOT NECESSARY, I am more than willing to sublet my apartment for the summer to anyone interested and figure out my own thing in OC. If interested, send me a message and I'll fill you in on the details.

Perfect opportunity for UC Irvine kids with a job in Boston for the summer.

Looking to sublet 1/2 of a 2 bedroom apartment (split kitchen, living room, bathroom; individual bedroom) in Arlington, VA. 10-15 minute walk from Court House/Clarendon metro (on the orange line). Cost is around $1200/mo. once you add in utilities. Parking available for $50 a month. Ammenities include: in-unit washer/dryer, pool, clubhouse, gym. The complex technically allows pets, but if you want to bring them there's additional fees we'll have to deal with (deposit, pet-rent, etc.) that are required by the leasing company.

PM or e-mail me for more details or if you're interested.
