This is from our old landlord who has nice properties ridiculously close to campus (Division St. at Madison!) and reasonable rents. Plus she tries to get grad students in and create community among the people in her properties (they're all in 1 block and share a common court). I'd like to post it on her behalf if possible.
I have just one house available for rent in September, located close to campus, law quad, stadium, and downtown. If incoming students in your department may be interested, I would be glad to show it to them. It has 5 bedrooms, three of them actually suites. Hardwood floors. Three and one-half baths. Large livingroom and diningroom. Kitchen with modern cabinets, refrigerator, stove, dishwasher. Front porch. Plenty of storage room in walk-out basement. Two off-street parking spaces.
The house is approved for occupancy by 6 people.
Rent is $3200 plus utilities.
I am responsive to tenant needs, and if something is broken, I fix it promptly.
