My boyfriend and I are looking to rent an apartment or a house in or close to Jonesboro for cheap in May. I am 18, he is 19, so we need a place that accepts college students. We want something decent, in a good neighborhood with a low crime rate. One bedroom, one bath will suffice. We also need it to allow small pets- we have a 6 pound cat that we are moving with us. We are on a budget though, considering that he is still in college, working only part time, and I will be a new college graduate just starting out my career as a cosmetologist. So under $500 a month is feasible for us. Does anyone know of a place or places that fits this description? Any input is appreciated.

probably be best to look just outside of Jonesboro in Brookland or Bono. Inside of Jonesboro if you're looking for under $500 you'll prob land your self on the north side where there is a lot of crime. Good luck!

I know, but we're trying to figure out something before May, because once May comes around we will both be out of a home unless we want to leave the state entirely to go live with our parents. So we need to find somewhere sooner than that and have time to go check out some places. But we are unfamiliar with the neighborhoods in Jonesboro, and we want one that kid friendly so we dont have to worry about our neices and nephews getting abducted when they come over to play. But if we can get any opinions on here about some of the apartments or rent houses in Jonesboro now, that would be great.

I live at the links in jonesboro and I really like it here. I've heard some negative stuff about it but in my 4 years here I haven had any problems. I think the rent is around $475/month plus another $25/month for your cat so you should be able to stay in budget. It's on south caraway road.

yeah I lived there and wasn't very pleased. The walls were paper thin- I could hear my gay neighbor fight with his boyfriend then make up. It was always a little awkward. And there was recently someone's apt got kicked in and held at gun point while robbed, and just a few weeks before that a car stolen.

I agree. Lindsey Management is awful. Took them 3 weeks to get us into our apartment.(told the beginning of the month... Didn't move in till like the 21st or 22nd) Maintenance isn't the best either.

Thanks you guys. I was actually looking into The Links, considering its right off two of the main roads we'll be on and its on a golf course that looks pretty nice. Does anyone have any more input on those? I know some of you had negative experiences, but I would just like to know more about it, whether its positive or negative. Share your experiences there please!:)

My roof leaked so bad that the plaster and the sheet rock was saging..they fixed it with a can of spray paint and got it on my bed and dresser and never fixed the roof. So everything it rained it leaked. So I moved and they tried to keep my deposit and I got a $780 bill for damages. So I sued them and they settled and I got my deposit and they didn't have to pay the bill....so that's the kind people that run that place. O and like the guy above. I moved from all the way from ny and they didn't have my apt ready until a week later. So yeah....stay far away from them.
