I a Master's student in history, a very focused and serious student. I prefer to live only with other men, to avoid the awkwardness that easily arises with coed housing. I spend most of my time studying, and while I listen to music (mostly classical or medieval chants), I don't think it's very loud, and I would most quickly quieten it if it bothered anyone. I prefer other graduate students or young professionals, no undergraduates--unless you have a very serious mind. I am uninterested in rooming with anyone who came to Charleston for the night life. I cannot abide loud partying and habitual drunkenness in my apartment. Furthermore, I am a committed Christian and prefer other Christians of some sort, or at least moral men. No bringing home girls to spend the night and that sort of thing. On the positive side, when I do have time I am happy to spend some time with people and perhaps go to a pub somewhere, to enjoy some high quality beer in reasonable measure.
The property I will be signing the lease for soon was originally built quite some time ago, but almost done being substantially renovated. We will be the first people to live in the renovated building. It has three bedrooms and one bathroom, and comes with washer and dryer. It is right in the middle of downtown, close to King Street and both the Citadel and the College of Charleston, where I go to school. You would need to put down $500 towards the $1500 security deposit, and pay the application fee. The fee is $50 for every person on the application, so if you are a student, you must have a guarantor, and the fee is $100. Otherwise, it is only $50. Because of legal fees, etc., a new lease or any changes to incurs a charge of $200, so we would want to all three of us sign the lease at the same time, after the next two men have applied. Then it will only be about $70 per person. Here is the link to the application at the Charleston Property Company's website:
The Charleston Property Company's number is If you call them, ask for Liz or, if she's not there at the time, Amanda. Tell her that you're looking to room with Daniel Bennett, the grad student who had an independent realtor agent show him the property, at 380 Race Street. She'll know what to do.
