Homes Perfect for SIUE Student Housing in Edwardsville, Illinois
Edwardsville, Illinois is home to the lovely campus of Southern Illinois University at Edwardsville and a booming community of students.
The university has been experiencing historic enrollment levels in recent years, leading some families to seek alternative housing arrangements for their students who can't find space in dorms or who are not interested in the dorm experience. (The university has newer and spectacular dorms, but space fills up fast.)
Parents may want to consider buying a reasonably priced Edwardsville area home and saving on their student's room and board costs by renting the additional bedrooms in the home to roommates. Their monthly rental payments can pay some -- or in some cases, all -- of the home's mortgage.
Roommate rents typically run between $300 and $400 per month for one bedroom and access to a home's public areas. All of the home's residents split the monthly utility bills and generally one roomie is in charge of making sure the fees are collected and rents paid (usually the child of the homeowner).
Rental agreements between the home's owner and the roomies usually run from August to August, but some sellers elect to allow students to rent from August through May if they are not planning on attending summer session.
I've selected a group of homes all within an easy commute of the Edwardsville campus that might fit your student's housing needs. These homes offer at least three bedrooms and are listed at reasonable purchase price of less than $130,000.
