Greensboro Apartment Search

I'm currently living in temp housing provided by my company while looking for apartments. I've looked at a few in the past few week or so, and really haven't found anything I liked. Most "normal" 1 bedroom apartments range from $650-$700, depending on part of town. I've lived in Greensboro for about 6 months a few years ago, so I know which parts to stay away from. I've even made a nice looking chart so I can make informed decisions later (below).

I haven't gotten around to it yet, but this Saturday I'm checking out the apartments in downtown Greensboro. They're about 20 minutes from my job, but I think the convenience of walking distance entertainment would be worth it. I'm also having trouble finding 1 bedroom apartments downtown. They're mostly 2 bedroom ones, costing about $1000-$1200.

Oh well, tomorrow is a new day, I have till about New Years to find something.

That is a nice looking chart, except on my browser it bleeds into the brown part. Other than that, that is a nice chart, a nice chart indeed.

I checked it in Firefox and IE. What browser were you using?

Having lived in Lake Brandt apartments, I can tell you that they are nice apartments, just be careful of which unit you get. The walking trails that run around the property interconnect with several nearby parks, so you would probably get a lot of pedestrian traffic by some units. The area is very convenient though, great access to grocery and ABC stores, with a nearby pool hall. Good luck finding a place.

Firefox but I think my resolution is too different than most because nothing ever seems right in my browser. Even ESPN usually looks like crap. My resolutions is set at 1600x1200.

I usually delete web-spam, but this is some great SEO so I'll leave this on. Creative way of generating a link using keyword targeted anchor anchor text. Good job mrgs.
