  • Looking to sublet one room of a two room apartment (located at 121 1/2 N. College Ave., Apt. 133) that is set atop of the infamous Scholars Inn Bakehouse in downtown Bloomington, overlooking city hall and the rest of the square. Without bias, I can honestly say that this is probably the best deal you will find, and the only reason I’m willing to lease it out for $200/month less that what I am paying (I will pay the difference) is because I will be studying in Barcelona next semester and need to find a tenant in the next month. The apartment is furnished with a 50 inch HD TV, along with a refrigerator, stove, washing machine, laundry machine in the unit, coffee table, awesome decorations in the living room, a kitchen table, a bathroom, kitchen chairs, and a queen size mattress and bedside table and drawer. Moreover, the living room is enormous and extremely spacious, and the location is ideal. You will have access to everything you need, and are situated in the heart of downtown Bloomington.  Beginnning and End Dates of Availability: December 19, 2014 - August 19, 2015.

    Rent: $750/month (a bargain) - willing to negotiate

  • Terrific 3 bedroom, 1 bath house for rent that is close to campus. We’ve lived in this house over a year, but my husband and I are buying a house and will be moving out of it in February. Start of the lease is really flexible. We are willing to pay until the end of February 2015 if you would need to move in anytime between March 1 to April 1, however, move in in February sometime is definitely negotiable if needed. Home is a mid-century limestone ranch and has hardwood flooring in the bedrooms, a really nice bathroom, HUGE kitchen with garbage disposal, 1 car garage, screened in back porch, and large fenced in yard. Pets are ok with the landlord, too. The landlord is incredibly nice and easy to work with; she just likes to have working professionals live in her home as opposed to undergrads. That’s why the house has stayed so very nice. My husband and I are more than willing to show it to you!
