Hello all of my fellow Queen City inhabitants!

I am looking for an apartment in the Hyde Park area. I would like something a little nicer, but still not too expensive. I would prefer not spending more than $750 per month on rent. If possible I would like something a bit cheaper.

I would love to live somewhere near Hyde Park, including the Norwood, Oakley, Mt Lookout or O'Bryonville neighborhoods. If anyone knows of any apartments, please let me know.

I would love to live in a multi-family house that has a bit of personality. I know I sound picky but I plan on being in this apartment for at least 2 years. I love DIY projects and I would love also to live in a house where the landlord would allow me to help fix it up and do some projects.

I recognize that I will not be able to find something with EVERY thing I want but I want to LOVE where I live.

It depends on what you mean by "nicer" but you'll probably just have to see places in person and judge for yourself. If you want a 1 bedroom you can find lots of options close to HP square. There will be fewer options in your price range for a 2br, but they are still around.

Are you in Cincinnati right now? Lots of houses in Hyde Park have "for rent" signs in the front yards, but I have no idea where else they advertize. It might be worth it to drive around street by street.

And just in case you haven't already checked the obligatory Craigslist ... here you go ...

Fix-up would be in Norwood just across I-71 from Rookwood on Williams. You can walk to either Oakley or HP Square from that area and have a rent payment in the $500 range (believe it or not) for a proper one bedroom in a building with hard wood floors and a mantel.

You have to get lucky to get a place in Hyde Park for a decent price. However, most of the places will be nice. Oakley is pretty much the same but a little less nice and a little cheaper - on average. Norwood is the best bet for a good price and if you check it out you can find some good catches. Gotta watch the neighborhood and condition of the property obviously but i think Norwood is where you can get the best bang for your buck.
