Default moving to cincy

hey everyone. i am a single female medical student starting residency in a few months and am considering cincy. they have a good program, but i have some questions regarding the living situation in the city. anyone have any info on the apartments/condos at stetson square (right across from the hospital)? they look nice & have a prime location. my budget is about $1000/month rent or about 150-175k to buy, and being a female, safety is my prime concern. any thoughts or recommendations are welcome!

Here's a link from rent.com

The Village at Stetson Square in Cincinnati, OH

its got prices. Seems like its kind of pricey, but if you're okay with a studio or loft, you might be all right.

Otherwise you may be able to find some other lovely apartments in the area that are a little older, and a little cheaper.

Good luck!

by the way - if the link doesn't work, I just googled "stetson square cincinnati apartments"

If safety is your primary concern, don't take this the wrong way, but I would not live in Clifton. Its not terrible if you know where to stay away from, but still there are much nicer and safer places in town than that.

Check out Mt. Lookout / Hyde Park. Beautiful, clean place... demographic is a mixture of white collar families and affluent 20 something young people. Also check out Newport on the Levee. I know it's a pain to commute to campus, but its a really short drive or bus ride and I honestly believe it will improve the quality of your life greatly. You can get a SWEET place in Mt. Lookout near the square for 500-600 bucks a month and spend the balance of your budget on a car payment. That way you have a way around town too to see other great parts of what the city has to offer!!!

And Clifton isn't as bad as some places. In fact, the gaslight district is really neat.

Here is the website for Stetson Square: Welcome to the Village at Stetson Square

Also, on your budget, Hyde Park would be the ideal place for you. Great neighborhood! Hip. Great shops and parks. Young vibe to the community, but also a great place to raise a family.

You could also consider Mt. Adams. You'd probably love it up there as well!

Best of luck. You'll like Cincinnati if you consider it as your new home!

i have been trying to find local real estate websites, but without much luck. anyone have any ideas? the usuals, i.e. realtor.com or apartments.com are ok, but i have found that they miss a lot of nice places. cincinnati is near the top of my list, as i have enjoyed the few times that i have been there. will definately have to look at mt. adams and hyde park. i was just curious about stetson square b/c it's across from the hospital.

Here's a Google search list that gives links to various real estate agencies in the area.

Something else you might want to do.....head over to this site: Urbanohio.com ....and sign up for the forums. The people over there would maybe be able to help you a lot, too.

I also like just using the Real Estate Function on Yahoo!

It screens through a lot of different realators for you with one engine... its my favorite one.

Good luck
