What all do you know about the city of Murfreesboro, Tennessee? I used to live in that city for almost 6 years. I lived on Greenland Drive, Highland Drive and over on the middle Tennessee State University campus. I also lived on Oak Street in a house. My first place in Murfreesboro, Tennessee that I lived was Nicks Hall at the University campus. Are you going to school there, going to move and work there or are you vacationing there?

At one point, it was one of the fastest growing cities in the state of Tennessee. And I’m sure that hasn’t changed much. It is not very far from Nashville at all. There are other smaller cities nearby, too, such as Smyrna and Lavergne. I lived in Murfreesboro the entire time, but I also worked in Smyrna and in Nashville at one point, too. The last apartment I had in Murfreesboro was at the University Terrace apartment complex.

One of my favorite haunts was the Stones. River Mall on Old Fort Parkway. I also used to work at the Steak and Shake over there. Cracker Barrel was another one of my employers in Murphysboro, Tennessee. I only attended school there for two semesters, and then I ended up transferring to Texas State later on. I did however attend Middle Tennessee State University online from Texas for 2 more semesters before transferring my credits.

Stones River Battlefield is one of the popular historical attractions in the city. My friend, who was still in high school, went to Oakland High School in Murfreesboro. Again, it is a straight shot to Nashville for many more attractions and all the nightlife there. One of the things that makes Murfreesboro so unique is it is a metropolis and still a very rustic and rural area at the same time.

Relocating to a different state can be incredibly stressful. One way to minimize some of the stress is to rent a great apartment in the area – somewhere you can really call home. Unfortunately, finding an amazing property in Murfreesboro, TN, that falls within your budget can sometimes be a challenge. What’s more, if you opt to rent an apartment in a large building block, you often have to pay monthly maintenance fees on top of your monthly rent.

If you have a detailed specification regarding the type of rental property you are seeking, contacting a reputable real estate agent in the city is perhaps the best way to find your next dream home. Real estate agents are often informed of rental properties well in advance of the public, so by contacting an agent you trust, you could get exclusive access to some real hidden gems in the Murfreesboro rental properties marketplace. In general, it is best to avoid basement apartments and ground floor flats. This is because such properties are susceptible to mold problems and they are not very secure.

Another way to find good rental properties in the area is to purchase the local weekly newspaper. Many landlords don’t advertise vacancies online or out-of-state because they are looking for tenants who are currently in the local area. Unfortunately, this can disadvantage those who are moving to the city from an out-of-state location. Thanks to the web, you might not have to buy a physical copy of a local publication; instead, you just need to know the name of the local weekly newspaper so you can visit their official website and check out the property section. That said, it’s important to make sure that you personally visit any apartment you intend to rent before signing a contract.
