So I've definitely decided to move out, even though my parents are still not recognizing the reality of the situation and are still trying to guilt trip me back home. My question is: is it better to find apts with a broker? Or could I possibly find better ones if I just go to the area(s) I'm interested in and look around? How is renting different from a sale in these cases? I would much prefer to spend as little as needed for an apt and if I can do so by myself, that would be ideal. (I don't relish paying the broker's fee). Also, if it's better to get a broker, can I only stick with one? Or can I work with multiple people?
