How many people in this thread actually rent or have looked for a placeto rent in the last 5 years to get out of their moms basement?

I do think I have ever seen anything so perfectly stated.

First, last, deposit- $1500
Credit check -$40
Non-refundable application fee (per adult) -$35
UHaul-$60
Total move in cost- $1635


As I mentioned to another poster, that's only if you're moving into a big complex run by a management company. If you spend a few days shopping around, you can find all sorts of deals in and around Orlando/Kissimmee. The "credit check + application fee" scam is less and less common these days, too.

Of course, you add in a U-Haul fee for people who don't have anything to put in the U-Haul.

From browsing through Craigslist, the actual cost is as low as $400 - for first month's rent. Add in utility deposit (not necessary in many cases), and you're looking at about 3/4 of a month's actual Travelodge "rent." And every month after that, they get $400 to $500 more in their favor.

Of course, you live in Seattle, where things are different. Plenty of trendoids and college students, I guess - easier to fool.

I have. And I happen to live in Central Florida. You know, the place you keep telling is is much more expensive than it actually is.

Up until last month, the duplex across the street was up for rent - for $500/month. Nice neighborhood, too.

skankboy: I'm glad so many humanitarians have shown up to this thread to provide such easy solutions to what was thought to be a complex problem.  Keep up the good work!


Its not a complex problem.  The property owner wants them out.  Under the law they have 7 days to leave. They will have to leave in 7 days or face the consequences.  There is no problem here, or at least nothing that will not work itself out in 7 days.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Ima4nic8or: I am trying to find some sympathy in myself but am coming up short.  As someone above said, wtf are they doing living in a hotel/motel? That is intended to be a place to stay for a short time, not a living arrangement.  You pretty much have to expect that the management could ask you to leave at some point.

If these folks are of limited means as someone else above said, then whey in the fark are they staying in a hotel/motel? That has to be one of the more expensive housing solutions.  Lets say you have an incredibly low rate of $40/night, that's $1200 month.  Surely there are much cheaper options.

If its just a few days I suggest they put their stuff in their vehicles, or rent a small U-Haul for a few days and go camping at the closest legal campsite.

Many hotels/motels will offer weekly rates at a discount, say $120 a week. That's less than $500 a month. Even if you could find an apartment for less than $500 a month in Orlando (you can't), you'd still need the standard first, last, and security ($1500), and usually an application fee or administrative fee ($50-$150) plus if you want electricity you have to either have good credit or pay a deposit of $200 or more.

So for your "cheaper option" you actually need around 2 grand just to get into, and that's impossible for people living day to day.


Usually not that expensive to get into an apartment. Requiring the last month's rent is a rarity these days. In the Orlando area you can get into a decent place for as cheap as around 700-800 when they are running move in specials. And there's low income housing complexes that will be lax on a credit check.

Still the hotel is way cheaper. No electricity, cable, water, or renter's insurance bills.
 
2013-11-24 11:52:23 AM
I pass by one of these places on the way to work every day. You keep saying that you can get an apartment for less. No you can't. Apartments, or houses, do not come fully furnished with cable, internet, utilities, phone and maid service. When the place doesn't come with those things, ignoring the maid service, you have to pay extra to hook them up and pass a credit check. And if you can afford all of that, even used furniture costs money...that they probably don't have.

cirby: MFAWG:
But you're going to have to come up with 5 grand in a lump sum to move. See how that works now?

Not in Kissimmee, Florida. For that kind of money, you're looking at really, REALLY nice places - massively better than a low-end Travelodge.

Missicat:
Plus furniture, the ability to pass a credit check, etc etc.

Lots of places to rent in Central Florida that don't require credit checks. Just stay away from the big complexes and management companies. Used furniture is cheap, too.

Shoop008:
It actually comes out a lot cheaper than renting an apartment.

Even at the lowball $200/week (which, with taxes and such, comes out closer to $250/week), it's still more expensive than apartment living at a cheap complex. From their website, the actual cost to stay at that hotel is about $1000/month after taxes - a cheap apartment somewhat bigger than those hotel rooms starts at about $500/month.


I live in the Northern Virginia area so can only speak from my experience here....if you can find a place for $500/month, it's NOT in an area you want to live.  And most decent places around here would require at least a deposit if not a credit check.  But of course Central FL could be and probably is quite different.

So deposits and first+last months are well within the reach of these folks living at Travelodge (i.e., are $0)?

Unless they're staying in the Travelodge for free, that "$0" is pretty much just made-up.

You keep saying "deposits and first+last months", but that's not the story around the area they're in. There's a lot of empty apartments and houses and duplexes in Central Florida, and quite a few of them are owned by individuals who don't screw around with credit checks and such. If you look around enough, you can find places that just want the first month's rent - for much less than the cost of the Travelodge for a month. There are also several housing assistance programs that help people with that sort of thing, so it's not anything like you portray.

There are literally places in the area where you can move in for $400-$500, no deposit. Some of them are pretty decent, too.


No to mention who says you need an apartment.  A mobile home park is a pretty good deal or if you can find a friendly land owner who will let you park a trailer or van on his property that can be an even better deal.  Housing solutions don't need to be expensive. For the $5k deposit and such quoted above you can live like this guy for an entire year: http://www.kgw.com/video/featured-videos/NE-Oregon-man-lives-in-Hobbi t -Hole-227822461.html

First: you can easily find apartments and duplexes for under $500/month in Orlando and the neighboring towns. Ignore the apartment advertising sites - hit Craigslist for the cheaper places. Many of them don't ask for the first/last/deposit, either.

That $2000+ estimate is only if you want to move into a nicer apartment complex run by a management company. The difference between that and the Travelodge they're currently in is pretty stark.

Once you get away from the big fancy places, there are a lot - a LOT - cheaper, decent places owned and run by individuals.


Ha. Link to one rental unit in the Orlando area for under $500/month that doesn't require anything up front.

What if they don't have $700-$800?  If they're living hand-to-mouth like most working class people, it's likely they don't.  It wouldn't surprise me if their budget is more like "I get paid this Friday, so I'll pay next week's rent of $120; you get paid next Thursday, and you'll pay the following week's rent with that..."  I know a lot of poor people who budget paycheck by paycheck, and not month by month or year by year.

I assume most of them lack the thousands of bucks needed for a deposit on an apartment, first and last month's rent, and utility deposits.


Put the beer and cigarette money in a savings account instead?

Anyone can find themselves in a bad position and need some temporary help. If you're living in a Travel Lodge for years, you don't know WTF you're doing.

Central FL was and remains today one of the most depressed real estate markets in the country.  And I don't mean mentally depressed, although some places we looked at could make you that way...

There's a CRAPTON of what used to be weekly rental houses/condos near the Disney area.  People bought these up and handed them over to management companies to rent out on a weekly basis for families coming to spend time with The Mouse.  That's just not happening anymore, so these places are now being put up for monthly (read: yearly) lease instead.  When I was looking for a new rental house in South Orlando a year ago, there were over *1000* new rental listings posted on Craigslist every DAY.  1000+ new listings a day.

The whole "first + last + deposit" thing just doesn't happen here anymore.  At most, you'll see an owner's private listing asking for first + deposit, and often not even that.  These owners just want their place occupied, otherwise they're losing money by the day.   cirby is 100% correct in saying these people could find a place to move into for $400-500 a month with no other costs upfront.  But the rub is this: they'd be moving into an empty apartment/house/trailer.  The other upfront costs come from furniture, TV, flatware, utensils, bedding, etc.  All the other stuff these people living in a motel DON'T have and would have to buy...but they don't have the money for it.

So you're all correct.  They can find a cheaper/equal-cost place to move in to if they put in the slightest bit of effort.  But they'd be sleeping on the floor, have no TV to watch, no plates to eat off, etc.

Just looking at some of them around my area they range from $60-70 a night. You could rent a pretty damn nice house around here for less than that.


The hotel won't do a credit check.

2013-11-24 01:36:30 PM

Miracle Whip: CowardlyLion: stuhayes2010: abhorrent1: Why the fark are they all living at a Travel Lodge?

Because they were poor.

Yeah, but the real question is why were they poor?

Didn't they know that they could just go out and get money and not be poor anymore? There's this strange, persistent myth that not everyone is born to the same parents, with the same socioeconomic background, and provided identical education, food, water, shelter, and and resources. Pisses me off that people keep ignoring the reality that poor people are poor simply because they're lazy and choose not to have money, high-paying jobs, or use their excellent educations properly.

You are wrong.  Generalizing that ALL poor people are lazy and choose not to have money is both ridiculous and misinformed.  Walk a mile in someone's else's shoes, trust fund baby.

Quantum Apostrophe: So much for the "house is an investment" myth, eh?


Down here, that myth was busted like 4 years ago when the market tanked.  Here's a prime example (pun intended):

The rental I just moved out of was purchased in 2006, for around $340,000.  It's a really nice 4-bedroom 2-story detached home, 2.5 bath, 2-car garage, around 3000 sq. ft.  When I was getting ready to move out after my 1-year lease, the owner asked me if I was interested in buying the house.  He'd financed $320k of that price when he bought it, and 7 years later, still owed about $280k.  But the problem is that the house is only worth $185,000 now.  He's waaay upside down on the mortgage and just wants out as soon as he can.

It's hardly an "investment" when it's worth 1/2 what you paid for it.  Sure, it'll bounce back...eventually.  The housing market around here is recovering at a snail's pace rate of ~5% per year now.  Someone else can do the math on how long that will take before it's even worth what he paid for it again.

These people are lamenting that they'll have nowhere to go and it's Thanksgiving, but I'm willing to bet they had no turkey day plans and are just whining to public sympathy. Pull your shiat together and go to a different roach motel. Problem solved.

If you count a frozen TV dinner with turkey in it as a plan, then I bet they had plans.

buzzcut73: Eriond: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Yeah, that listing has no contact information at all. It's a scam. Try responding to it and see what happens.

And the other 2499 listings in the 2nd link I posted?  All scams too, right?

And no, addy2, I moved out of Orlando a month ago.  Fark that place.

A good portion of them that I looked at likely are. Also included are single rooms in somebody's house (not going to get a family in there), people looking for roommates, and a couple of extended stay hotels like the one that's closing down.


This. A few scams, a shiatload of "efficiencies" aka a spare bedroom in someone's house, and some extended stay motels are what you can find for $500/month in Orlando. None of which are suitable for a family.

They *might* be able to find a dilipidated meth trailer in Polk county, but those offers are few and far between and usually go quickly.

You need at least $650 for even a crack house apartment and those usually require a desposit.

So, outrage? The hotel can never renovate, remodel, be bought or sold, ever, because there are people living there with no other options?

Sorry, I have little sympathy. Not only that, but motels are seasonal businesses. They have to do these things in the winter. If it wasn't Thanksgiving, it'd be Christmas, New Year's, or "they're throwing us out in the coldest weather ever!"

Craigslist is only one source.  Want another one? How about Zillow...that less scammy for ya?

$475 - 1BR/1BA condo
$525 - 1BR/1BA apartment
$525 - 3BR/1BA apartment
$525 - Another in the same complex

Like I said, they can be found.  Just gotta know where to look.

You seem to have an inability to click more than one link per reply. I'll keep that in mind in the future.

You're suggesting options in Pine Hills and Parramore?  I'd rather stay at a hotel almost anywhere in Osceola County.  Two of those areas that you listed are dirt cheap for a reason - it's because no one wants to live there because of the ungodly crime rates.  Although I suppose it could be somewhat made up by having Crazy Daisy as your city commissioner.

No, no it's not. This is an 800 square foot, 1 BR, 1 BA condo that last sold in 2006 for $60K.  Either you know absolutely nothing about how rental prices work or you honestly think a place that size in Pine Hills would rent for $1900 a month.  Regardless of which it is, you're wrong and not worth arguing with anymore.

Both Zillow AND the rental company's website clearly indicate it's for the month.

But congrats on using the Google summary of that website rather than actually clicking through it yourself.

Reminds me when I watched an Oppressed Family like that going postal in a motel when told they had to stay somewhere else for a week, because the local laws would plunk the motel under apartment building rules if they let people stay there for over a month without a break.

Perhaps they should rent a real residence that has a lease if they don't want to be forced to leave at a moments notice.
