A piece of advice to anyone who got a bad number in the HRES lottery; monitoring the 'currently available' section at the right time can be GOLDEN. By the right time I mean around 10AM CST on Thursdays through the afternoon. Its a few hours before they send out the email about new availabilities, and they add about 10-20 good options every week.
This is actually really good advice. I may
be putting my 1 bedroom, 689 sq. ft. Terry Terrace apartment up for grabs on the Currently Available list at some point late next month or in July. It's actually a steal for the location and the size (1st floor; 689 sq. ft; right in front of HLS; all utilities included--even internet).
The only thing is that my best friend is thinking about coming to Boston in the fall, so if she decides to, we're going to try and find a 2 bedroom place together. She won't know definitively until next month or early July, but I just thought I'd mention this to anyone who might be interested.
P.S. For those of you who haven't done so and wanted to do it, don't forget that the Locker Sign-Up already began a few weeks ago.
