What is #ATXrenter?

 

Ever had a shady landlord? How about problems getting your security deposit back? What about that condition in your home you've been trying to get repaired forever? Chances are, the 55% of Austinites who rent have dealt with the same issue. To know their stories, you'd have to find and ask them individually- until now.

 

We are launching #ATXrenter across social media channels as a platform to discuss ideas, opinions, and issues that the 55% --Austin Renters-- face. Here's how it works:

 

1. BASTA will ask a question about a housing issue.

2. You use #atxrenter to contribute your story.

3. We all track #atxrenter on social media to watch the conversations.

This week, we're asking Austinites:
