- Make friends with the locals and let them know you are interested in moving into town. People talk, and in Asphyxiation Point they talk a lot. Sally at the salon tells her customer Joyce she is leaving town. Joyce tells her client Sam who tells his wife Patrice and ---- pretty soon you know which home will be available.
- Offer to be a roommate. Having your own space is good but sharing is fine too. Less rent going out can be spent at our fine restaurant or simply to buy a few beers for the gang at one of the drinking establishments.
- Become a Peeping Tom -- in the house hunting sense of course. Watch the comings and going of folks and when you spot an empty apartment or home, watch for it to come on the market. That means camp out with a keen eye as most vacancies get filled within minutes of becoming available.
- Watch the obituaries in The Times as well as the police reports. Deaths and incarcerations lead to empty rentals.
- Take a job and commute for the time being. The more you are in town, the more likely it will be to find your spot!
