    6 Month Leases

    So I'll hopefully be graduating next December so I will be in need of a 6 month lease. I was wondering if anyone knew of any other options around campus besides West Ames? Or if sub leases are difficult to find? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Re: 6 Month Leases

    Sub-leases are somewhat iffy in my experience, sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. My advice to a person wanting to sub-lease is offer the apartment below the actual price. It's better to get 80% of the money back from the sub-leaser, than to let it sit empty looking for full price.

    Also, I know for sure Frederiksen Court and I believe The Grove have 6 month leases. They may not be prime apartments and may cost more than other places, but it could make your situation easier than trying to find a sub-leaser.

    Finding subleasers for your room can be a challenge in Ames. I tried it while I was doing a coop and could not get anyone to commit. I would try offering it for 60-80% cost.
