My family and I are thinking about moving to Cincinnati. Is it possible to rent a 3Br house for around $700in a good neighborhood with good schools? We have been to Cincinnati and love it, we just not sure of good areas or schools.

I'm probably not the most familiar with rentals in the area but I would say you'd be looking at $1000 a month for a decent 3 bedroom house. You could probably find a older/smaller 3 BR for $700 but most likely not in a "good neighborhood with good schools". Maybe someone with a good current working knowledge of the area rentals can comment.

Might check with some local realtors they can sometimes hook you up with good rental deals in better school districts.

I'll have to be honest. This is a fairy tale.

No way you can get a 3-br detached house for $700/mo, especially in a suburb or "good neighborhood with good schools". Can't and won't happen.

That being said, you have 3 main criteria:
1. $700/mo budget
2. "Good" schools & neighborhood
3. 3 bedrooms


My best advice is to look in Hamilton. This budget will put you on the east side, which is rough, but schools there are better than CPS, etc. Also, the city is up and coming, lots of good things happening there, which may price you out of the city in the future but for now you can milk it for what it's worth.

That's a heck of a small budget. I am very sorry to hear about your circumstances, and I hope they improve in the future.

Considering that the OP clearly stated their love for Cincinnati, advising them to look to Hamilton is akin to recommending Milwaukee to a family just after they specifically told you they loved Chicago.

You could get a mortgage payment lower than $700. But renting? You'd be really far out in a rural area. Older areas like Reading or Hamilton would be the cheapest safe areas I can think of for house renting

It's only a 35-40 min drive from downtown Cincy to downtown Hamilton....

And I don't see anywhere where they specifically state they want to be in city limits... I mean their budget might be doable in city limits, but that also would put them in Price Hill or somewhere like that and I don't know the ins and outs of specific blocks are go-no go like I do in Dayton. I can safely recommend virtually anywhere in Hamilton for their needs.

Where are you coming from? A 3-bedroom house for $700 anywhere sounds ridiculously cheap.

It would be helpful if the OP jumped in here and provided more information about themselves. We don't know in what area their employment is located, how far they're able or willing to commute, or what is it about Cincinnati that attracts them. Knowing these things would make it easier to offer appropriate suggestions.

One thing we seem to agree upon, however, is that this family's expectations of renting a 3 BR house for $700 in a good neighborhood with good schools will be difficult, if not impossible. What we need to know is what they're willing to compromise on or if they're have specific limitations already in place.

Thanks for the replies. We currently live in Lima, Oh and here u can find a nice house for about $700 a month. Were not really sure what the good neighborhoods are there and was hoping for some direction. I understand we may have to pay more for a decent area with good schools. So my question would be what price range for rent and what areas should we look into. As for jobs, my work history has been warehouse work. I want to have a job lined up before the move. Also, I don't have a degree but would be up for different kind of jobs that will train without requiring a degree.

^And thanks for the additional info.

I would push the budget up to $1000/mo if you can and look towards Springdale/Sharonville (Princeton schools aren't bad).

Here's a place:
10804 Thornview Dr, Cincinnati, OH 45241 | Zillow
and others will come up there too.


Otherwise, Colerain would be the way to go. Just don't buy there. Here's some spots:
APT: 3 Bedroom - Ashley Woods Apartments in Cincinnati, OH | Zillow
3223 Ainsworth Dr, Cincinnati, OH 45251 | Zillow
2817 Wheatfield Dr, Cincinnati, OH 45251 | Zillow


Good luck!
