Lane County Oregon Listings

Couch Surfing Spot in Eugene, OR

The first listing for this page is my own residence in the Whit in Eugene, OR. I have as of December 2017 completed the upgrade on the storage of my extra stuff under my matteress in the living room of my studio apt, so now there is ample room for one person to sleep in the living room on the floor. Note that this spot is currently occupied by a now formerly homeless guy who is now paying me rent. 

Couch Surfing Spot in Pleasant Hill, OR

There is a nice person who responded to the ad I placed on https://freeworlder.com/ who has a place in Pleasant Hill, Oregon, just South of Springfield, OR, who is willing to host a couple of people for a few days, at least when they are not busy helping out with the Egan Warming Centers.  They have previously offered to drive the people to and from Eugene, if needed, since there is not adequate bus service where they live. Call me at 541-636-6269 or e-mail me at pagesincolor@yahoo.com to set that up.

How To Find Many More Opportuntities To Rent Than Are On Craigslist

To find many more listings than are currently on this page, all that I did was have someone drive me around the areas of E 17th Ave and High Street and also W 11th and Oak Patch in Eugene, OR and I wrote down phone numbers and prospective property names from the for lease signs that abounded. That part took about one hour. Then I spent another two hours using Google to look up the property names and adresses and made some phone calls to the phone numbers to find out what was available. In the process, I stumbled accross various meta-listing web sites that let me sign up for e-mail alerts about new listings in my price range. Some of the listings below were taken from the meta-listing sites as well as the sites directly associated with the property names. I wish you the best of luck in your search. Cheers! :>)

Ongoing Transitional Housing Opportunity in Downtown Eugene, OR for $380/mo

According to a guy named Michael who has recently vacated his Conestoga Hut in Eugene and moved into a well heated indoor space in transitional housing (for men only) in downtown Eugene, there may be an ongoing series of opportunities to move into the facility where he is currently staying, as he claims that people move out quite frequently. Privacy seems to be minimal, but the price is right, only $380 per month. He moved there after first contacting me only two weeks ago expressing that he wanted to move out of the Conestoga Hut that he was living in, so I can only imagine that there is not a big waiting list for this particular facility. Contact Michael at 541-606-4663 to set that up.

More Opportunities Exist Than Are Listed On Craigslist

I have it on good authority that there are many, many 'for rent' signs on apartment buildings near the UO and also in West Eugene, likely many more for rent opportunities than represented by the listings on Craigslist. I reccommend that you scout around and see what kind of deal you can make with the various landlords in the area. The word is that the speculators have overbuilt student housing and did not anticipate the current situation where UO enrollment is some 5000 or more students lower than expected.  Also look for more opportunities on http://forrent.com and http://zumper.com .

AirBnb Opportunities

The website called https://www.airbnb.com/ has 81 listings of rooms for rent for $14-$33 per night in Eugene, OR. There may be simillar deals available in your town, even if you don't live in Eugene, OR.  I used to think that airbnb was just used by people who wanted to make obscene profits off of their rooms for rent, but not anymore. Even the higher rates on airbnb are often much cheaper than a motel room and provide a lot more space, such as access to a living room, deck, hot tub and full kitchen in many cases.
