How to get rent control apartment

Posted by Charlotte on October 30, 2001 at 13:58:15:

I am new to the area and would like to get a rent control apartment. I am not well off (30K government job, student loans, will be taking grad school courses at night), so a rent control apartment is my only real option (now I drive 90 minutes both ways to work, then soon you add another hour for school).

Can I go to a realtor and ask to be shown just rent control apartments? Is there a waiting list?

I understand that even rich people can get rent control apartments, so I would think I qualify.

I read about these apartments all the time, but it seems sometimes that you can only get them through word of mouth -- why is this so confusing?
