Default Moving To Chillicothe

I am moving to Chillicothe, OH for work. I am a 25 y/o single female. Any suggestions where to live or where not to live? I heard the Western part is safer. It seems like there is not a lot of houses to rent--more apartments or townhouses. Any place that is good..or bad? Or should I try to find something in the country? I am having a really hard time finding anything online or in the Gazette.. Any suggestions??

Any info would be great!

Default Chillicothe Move

Try craigslist for rentals. You can usually search by price and many times they have pictures. Here is the link.

craigslist classifieds: jobs, housing, personals, for sale, services, community, events, forums

Zane Square in Chillicothe, right in the middle of town, has a couple new apts coming open in the next week or two. And the apts up on western avenue always have openings. Most around the $500 price range. Get ahold of me on the Zane Square apt, I could probably help out.

Contact a local realtor for houses to rent. I agree with the other poster, do not move to the south end of town. Other than that most of Chillicothe is pretty quiet.

South-East end is even worse. Eastern avenue area is one I avoid all together.

I'm moving out of Chillicothe next week so I'll wave as we pass each other on the highway! Stay away from Zane Square Apartments -- that's where my company put me and it's old and run down. They seriously need new windows -- two of mine would not close and the remainder of the windows would not stay up (I propped them open with pieces of wood.) The maintenance men have forgotten what caulking is. The window sills are formica (I'm not joking.) It's a bit depressing to come home too.

The Lakes apartments are the nicest (on the west side) -- their phone number is 773-2001. Several people at work lived there and it's updated and has garages available (really important due to ice storms and amount of snow in the winter.) A lot of contractors live there.

I also liked Professional Drive Apartments which were built as attached homes. Again on the west side, the downside is that they do not have appliances (you need to bring your kitchen.) Here is their website: [http://www.chillicothe-apartments.com]

Newer are the North River Place and Bridge Street Landings (which is income restricted and a lot of college kids are there.) Both are located on the east side, just south of Route 23 on Bridge Street. The downside is that they are very close to the river. I'm not sure if they have ever had a problem, but it's something to check into.

Good Luck!

We just moved to Chillicothe. If we had known how BAD the health care is here we would have moved closer to Columbus.
