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  The dorms were loud, they smelled bad, were old, outdated, small and ridiculously expensive.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.

Confessions Of A University of North Texas Dorm Resident

I admit it.  When I found out I would be attending the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas, I was very excited.  My first thought was “where would I live?”.   I was not sure if it would be better to live in the dorms at the University of North Texas or should I live in a rental home in Denton.  A friend of mine was also attending the University of North Texas and decided to live in the dorm.  SO, I figured he and I could room at the dorms.  What a mistake that was.

Staying in the dorms at the University of North Texas may be for some people but not me.  I like my privacy, quiet and plenty of space.  I also have a dog so I always wanted a yard.  When I stayed in a dorm at the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas, I did not get any of the things I wanted.  Also, the dorm was loud and going to the community bathroom was awful.

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.

Denton Independent School District

The Denton Independent School District has been in existence since 1882. The Denton Independent School District is located about 25 miles north of Dallas and Fort Worth.  The Denton Independent School District is very large, encompassing 180 square miles.  The Denton ISD also contains all or parts of 16 cities, communities or major developments.

As the county seat for Denton County, the city and school district have a rich history. In 1882, a $15,000 bond election was passed to finance the construction of Denton’s first public school. The structure was three stories and made of red brick. The district has continued to grow – and currently is one of fastest-growing school districts in North Texas.

Denton ISD includes three comprehensive high schools, six middle schools, 21 elementary schools, two early childhood centers, an alternative high school, an advanced technology complex and other specialized schools and centers. Bettye Myers Middle School is scheduled to open for the 2013-14 school year as the district’s seventh middle school.

In the past 10 years, the district has passed three bond packages – totaling more than $627 million. The support of the community in which the district serves is evident in the passage of these bond packages. They have averaged passing with a 60 to 80 percent passage rate.

Not only does the school district community support outstanding school facilities, it demands excellence in its educational programs. It is truly an educational community where citizens are highly engaged in education – especially with two major universities and a community college within its boundaries.

The higher Education facilities include:

  • University of North Texas
  • Texas Woman’s University
  • North Central Texas College

The presence of three institutions of higher learning within the district sets a professional learning climate that engages everyone in the community. For example, with UNT boasting one of the best music programs in the nation, the district is one of only 10 percent of school districts nationwide that offers orchestra at the elementary level.

With its huge geographical area of 180 square miles, the Board and district staff work together as a cohesive team to help bridge the gap between these numerous cities, towns, communities and major developments.

Those areas include:

  • Argyle
  • Bartonville
  • Copper Canyon
  • Corinth
  • Cross Oak Ranch
  • Cross Roads
  • Denton
  • Double Oak
  • Lantana
  • Oak Point
  • Paloma Creek
  • Pecan Creek
  • Providence
  • Robson Ranch
  • Savannah
  • Shady Shores

Although it covers a large area, Denton ISD’s unique “small town community” environment separates it from the growing, larger suburban school districts within the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. Denton ISD is able to offer all the programs available from larger school districts, but maintains “a small community climate.”

A great reason to live in Denton, Texas and attend any of the schools in the Denton Independent School district is there are plenty of Rental Homes and Rent Houses that are centrally located around the schools and campuses of the Denton Independent School district.  By living in a rental home or rent house in Denton, Texas, a student and their family can get the privacy and amenities of living in a rent house without all of the responsibility of actually owning a home.  Rent Houses in Denton, Texas offer a few advantages to other living options.

University of North Texas (UNT) And Texas Women’s University (TWU) Denton, Tx Dorm Living

When most students start their freshmen year at the University of North Texas or Texas Women’s University in Denton, Texas, their first living experience is in one of the many dorms on campus.  Dorms can be a lot of fun.  They are a great way for you to meet a ton of people, make new friends and are typically very convenient to the campus.  They can also be VERY cramped, loud and in many cases; unsanitary.

When we are younger, these types of conditions might be OK or adventurous to us.  However, as we get a little older in college, classes get harder and students begin to work more, most people want to get out of the dorms.  For most college students at the University of North Texas or Texas Women’s University, buying a home is not an option.  However, renting is the best option.  Most students find that renting is much cheaper than living in the dorms and it gives them much more flexibility, privacy and comfort.

Most students at the University of North Texas or Texas Women’s University will rent apartments because “all of my friends rent apartments”.  However, if they only knew that there were many, many GREAT rental homes to choose from.  Living in a rent house gives students the life of a home owner but the convenience of renting.  Renting a house can save you a ton of money can give you amenities you just cannot get anywhere else.  Some of these are listed below.

1) You typically get more square feet for your dollar in a house

2) Most houses have backyards which makes owning pets and entertaining a breeze

3) The landlord is still responsible for maintaining the property and fixing anything that breaks

4) Rental homes afford you MUCH more privacy and QUIET than an apartment

5) Location, location, location.  There are so many rental homes out there, you can live anywhere

So, the next time you decide to rent, make sure you give rental homes a try.  They give you the best of both worlds.  Just because you rent, does not mean you do not deserve a HOME!!!!
