My boyfriend and I are thinking about moving to Columbus from Flint, MI. Looking into all aspects of moving and wanted to see what apartments (middle-lower class couple) were the best in Columbus. Also - what areas are best to live - any direction better than the other? Any areas/apartments to avoid?

Default Northeast Info

I moved to Columbus in 2003, but have always lived in the Northeast section of the city so that's really all I can tell you about. I would stay away from Easton and pretty much everything near Morse Rd on the east side of I-71. That area has gotten pretty scary over the last few years. North of 161 (aka Dublin Granville Rd) was OK when I was living there. My favorite apartment was in the Cooper Rd/Westerville Rd area. Nice, quiet neighborhood...never had any problems...friendly people...decent price. It really depends on your price range and what you're looking for. If you've found any particular apartments online that you are curious about I'd be happy to give an opinion. Hope at least some of that helps

I too am from Michigan and looking to move to Columbus, Indiana for a teaching job. I appreciate any and all advice on where to avoid or what to look for as far as renting goes. Is it better to rent a house or an apartment at this point in the current economic downturn? I know in Michigan houses are being foreclosed so often that many people are renting for super cheap and the deal ends up being better than paying for an apartment. Is it like that at all in Columbus? Is the sour economy effecting it quite as harshly as it is here in metro Detroit? (Also, I just realized that this thread doesn't specify if this is for Columbus Indiana so if this is irrelevent I apologize!)

Default Northwest Columbus

Ever since moving from campus after graduating, I've always stuck to the NW area of Columbus. The Grandview/Upper Arlington/Dublin area is very nice, and you can find a lot of well-priced apartments.

Yeah I second that. I moved to Upper Arlington two months ago, live in a pretty affordable place and really enjoy it.

I think better responses might follow if you stated what you two are into. Being close to stuff going on, being downtown, out in the burb's farther. And do you already have jobs lined up? I would not want to live in Pickerington and drive to Hilliard for work. Just my opinion.

Gahanna and Westerville have a ton of nice affordable aparments. Both are on the Northeast side of Columbus. Pickerington and Reynoldsburg (both east of Columbus) have good apartments too, but as the other poster said, you better not have a job on the west side of C-Bus because you'll have one hell of a commute.

Hello All! I am planning to move to Columbus and I'm looking for an apartment that includes laundry space inside of the apartment. I want a 3 bedroom apartment with a master bedroom with a private bath. I love to cook so a nice size kitchen is a plus. The apartment has to be located in an excellent school district because I have to teens who will be leaving and excellent school system that they are excelling extremely well in. My office will be located 5 mins from downtown columbus located near rich/main street. Need all the help I can get in choosing the right area to move in. Thanks for any help you can give me!
