Hi all,

I am currently commuting from Columbus to Cincinnati. I am looking to rent an apartment and I have two options so far:
1) Aspen Village Apt
on 2703 Erlene Drive and
2) Arbors of Anderson,
4037 Mount Carmel Tobasco

I was wondering if you know anything about these areas, my work is at about 20 minutes from each of these places.

I've heard about Hyde Park, but I couldn't find any apartments in my search (websites). We're in our mid 20's.
I also read on this forum that is best to drive around and just call whenever there's a sign "for rent". Probably, we'll do that on Saturday.
Are furnished apartments hard to find? We're basically looking for a safe area and we don't care much about entertainment.

Default Move to Cincinnati

Congrats on the move...........I made the same move.....25 yrs ago! Try using craigslist for rentals.

I like the Ravenswood Apartments on Erie Ave. in Hyde Park as an entry level type place. Safe, hip, everything in walking distance including Cincinnati's nicesest park, Ault PArk. Its a big place so they will have a phone listing and/or internet presence.

I think it would help if you stated your price range and the type of accomodations you are looking for.

Thanks for the replies!

I tried looking for apartments on craigslist - I couldn't find any apartment in a nice location.
We're looking to rent an apartment in the $400-$600, as we're keeping the apartment we rented in Columbus (as my wife is going to stay in Columbus until she gets her masters/PhD). In this range, probably a studio/1 bedroom apt would be perfectly fine for us.
Any suggestions as to where to head on Saturday? Areas, places - some addresses would be fine, since we're relying on our GPS.

Hard to advise you without knowing more about what you want. Where will you be working or attending school? Are you more interested in a suburban area, or urban? More of a newer, luxury-type apartment in a complex, maybe with a pool and tennis courts? Or maybe part of a Victorian house in one of the "hipper," walkable neighborhoods?
I personally like Clifton. It falls into the latter category. apartments can definitely be had in your price range. They are older buildings.

I am working in Clifton area, if I'm not mistaken. I apologize, but I am not at all familiar with Cincinnati. As long it's not more than half an hour drive to work it should be fine. I don't want anything fancy - let's say a pool would be nice, but I'll manage without it.

Are there problems with cockroaches in Cincinnati? I read some reviews and someone was writing about that specific complex of apartments that it has some problems.

Tomorrow we'll be driving there together to see those two apartments. Other than that, I guess we'll be driving and looking for signs.
