I'd Save A Lot Of Money...

It looks like I'm going to be living in my truck when I move to Yuma!!

I cannot find one freaking decent place to live. Nada!!

I DO.NOT. want to live in an apartment again. I don't like it! I'll deal with a condo, put up with a duplex, but I would prefer a house.

I'm not finding jack shit!

Everything in my price range (and I'm not being cheap) is in the ghetto, super super small and/or old and shitty! Anything worth a damn is not worth paying for just myself!

I've searched every website, every newspaper and have called several realtors. Not to mention, most realtors could give a damn about rentals...or at least it doesn't seem like they do (do they even make any money off them??)

And I have looked at apartments. I'm willing to pay more to be in some good ones. Let me ask this....why when they show pictures of the apartments, they always have one of the pool, 5 of the lobby area of their office and then 1 of the grounds???? All places I'll see once a month! They make this so difficult!

I've considered buying, but am not in the position to do that at this time in my life. Maybe in a year or two.

Meanwhile, I am starting to panic just a tad as we are at 18 days and counting! Not to mention, my company's relocation company STILL hasn't contacted me!! And they won't tell me my fricken salary until the relocation company has a quote.

Nothing like cutting it close!

I would call and agressively complain to/about the relocation people.

Try looking out side of Yuma.

Good luck!

Yikes... you could always try finding a roommate. I had to do that when I first moved out on my own and didn't want to live in a dump.

Yuma? My sister lived there about 5 years ago and I could drive around and hit every liquer store within 40 minutes. You might try a phone listing to see if you can find Rental agencies... not realtors. Also give the Chamber of Commerce a shot. They may have some info for you. Good luck. You do like being around marines. ;-)

Hell Sissy,
For what you'd pay in rent, why not go out and buy a big ol' RV and park it in one of the many RV parks. With the way you move around it may be useful to have a home on wheels.

Very good point, Spurs! LOL!

Look for Management Companies. People usually pay a Management Company to take care of their rental properties such as houses, condos, and townhouses.
