Hello there, Crossroad residents! I'm working on a story this week about the area's apartment rental atmosphere. I spoke with the president of the Victoria Apartment Association just yesterday about how the economy is affecting the local industry and she said we've seen a slight decrease in occupancy. That's mainly because, with the economic downturn and job losses, many people moved back home or found roommates to save a bit on expenses. I'll be hitting the streets today to find more information for the story but was wondering if you or anyone you know of might have taken measures to save on rental costs in today's economy. If so, I'd love to speak with you. You can reach me either by responding to this blog, e-mailing me at amiles@vicad.com or calling 361-580-6511. Thanks so much! -Allison
