Hello everyone,

Without getting too much into the discussion of relocation, specific neighborhoods, etc. what should I expect to pay for a one bedroom apartment within city limits?

I have been searching for months for an apartment but everything I have found would cost me approximately $750 a month (a bit high for the city in my opinion). I am looking to pay between $600-650 a month for a one bedroom utilities included.

Is this price point unrealistic for Cincinnati? If not, are there specific neighborhoods that typically have that type of cost?

It seems to me there is a sharp cutoff with price points in the city. Apartments at or above $625 tend to be of decent quality while anything below that borders a dump. Or maybe I am using the wrong websites and listings.

you're not going to get a place downtown or in mount adams for that, but you can absolutely find a decent place for that price. i just did a craigslist search for $575-$625 and found a bunch including several hyde park and at least one clifton apartment in the ~ 400-500 square foot range. there are also a number of recently rehabbed apartments in kennedy heights on montgomery. there are some slightly bigger 1BRs on some quiet streets in pleasant ridge for under $650. also a good one in northside in the 575-625 range. i'm sure there are plenty in oakley, too.

most of these apartments are in some variation of the 'cincinnati four' - a boxy art-deco brick apartment building very common in this city

you could probably get half a duplex in westwood at that price too, if you want a yard.

what kind of neighborhood do you want?
