Advice from a Texas Woman’s University graduate – Rent a House!!!!!

My name is Ashely.  I recently graduated from Texas Woman’s University.  For the first couple of years of my time in Denton, Texas, I had to live in the dorms on campus.  The University of North Texas and Texas Woman’s University in Denton, Texas make you live in the dorms as freshman.  I can honestly say, it was awful.  The dorms were loud, they smelled bad, were old, outdated, small and ridiculously expensive.  Living in a dorm at TWU in Denton, Texas made it almost impossible to get homework done to say nothing of just trying to sleep.  So, when I became a junior and was able to live off campus, I bolted.

I did not want to live in apartments in Denton, Texas because that would be almost like living in a dorm.  I remembered what it was like living in my parent’s house growing up.  SO, I decided that that is what I wanted to do.  I wanted to live in a house in Denton, Texas.  I went online and researched a lot of rental homes in Denton, Texas.  There was quite a selection.  I did find some good options but I happened to stumble on a home rented by Redden Properties.  They had a GREAT rental house in a quiet neighborhood, east Denton.  The great thing was it was so close to Texas Woman’s University, I could have ridden my bike to class if I wanted to.  The house was located in a quiet neighborhood and gave me all of the space and privacy I could have asked for in a rental home in Denton, Texas.

The amazing thing was, my rent was so low, I could have afforded the rental home all by myself if I wanted to, but I figured it was such a big house, I could bring in a roommate and still would have all of the privacy and room that I wanted; while saving money on rent.

To all of those Texas Woman’s University and University of North Texas student, LISTEN TO ME!!!!!  When you can get out of the dorms, DO NOT rent an apartment.  Rent a beautiful and very affordable rental home from Redden Properties.  It’s the way to go in Denton, Texas.

Straight Talk: Don’t Rent an Apartment in Denton, Texas, Rent a House!!!!!!

I have lived in Dallas and Denton, Texas for over 20 years.  In that time, I have rented 14 different apartments.  One bedrooms, 2 bedrooms, nice apartment complexes, bad apartment complexes and more.  I can honestly say there was not one apartment that I truly enjoyed living in.  They were loud, no privacy, no space, cramped, crowded and just not taken care of.  When I moved to Denton, Texas a few years ago, I made a change.  I decided to rent a house in Denton, Texas.  What a difference renting a house in Denton, Texas made in my life.

Renting a house in Denton, gave me so many of the things that I had missed since I grew up in my parent’s house.  When I moved to Denton, I got lucky and rented a house from Redden Properties.  The rent house was very well taken care of.  It was a newer home with a deck in a big back yard.  There was new carpet, stainless steel appliances in the kitchen and I loved the floorplan.  The neighborhood in Denton, Texas was also very quiet and very close to Texas Woman’s University and the University of North Texas.  The unbelievable thing was the price.  OMG – I was paying less for everything I got living in a Redden Properties rent house than I ever got in an apartment, when I paid so much more.

You just cannot go wrong renting a house in Denton, Texas.  There are a lot of rental homes to choose from but I would always recommend living in rent houses by Redden Properties.  They are just great!!!!!!

So, the first thing I did when I could, was go look for a rent house (rental home) in Denton, Texas.  I figured if I could get a rental home in Denton, Texas, I could get all of the amenities I wanted.  I would also be able to bring my dog to Denton, Texas as well.  Renting a house in Denton, Texas, proved to be the right thing to do.  I ended up renting a house from Redden properties and loved it.  They had a great rent house in Denton, Texas that was big, had a great yard, was clean and well taken care of.   Also, if I ever needed anything fixed or addressed, my landlord came right over to take care of it.

Considering Electric Bills in North Texas

When you are looking for rent house in Denton, Texas be sure to remember the utilities.  As a rule of thumb, utilities(including cable) will be approximately 25% of your rent amount in the Denton, Texas area.  You should always be an informed renter and know which utilities you’ll be responsible for and approximately how much you’ll be spending each month. This will help you manage your bills and keep extra dollars in your pocket.

Comparing Electricity Prices & Plans

In 2002, Texas deregulated the electric companies. As a result, you have an unlimited number of electric companies from which to choose. Whether we’re all receiving a better rate now is open to debate. Some of the larger local providers include Reliant Energy and TXU Energy. The prices and plans vary widely depending on your personal usage(the plans tend to reward more usage), so trying to calculate your monthly electric bill will be difficult.

Remember, especially if you’re new to the Denton, Texas area, that summers are hot and your air conditioner will be running constantly.  Your rental homes’ hot water heater and main heater, may also be electric.  A little homework researching electricity plans now will save you a lot of money down the road.

Credit Problems and the Utilities

Credit problems with the utility companies have become an enormous problem for many people in the past few years.
