Also, applying for government jobs is a very different process than applying for most private sector jobs, and I'm not the most well-versed on how to go about doing it in a way that leads to good results. But practice makes perfect.
Take a few tests even if you don't use the results. It's good to know where you stand.

True. I will have to do that. Thanks for the heads up.

I forgot to mention that I have a dog (golden retriever) and I want him to have at least a small yard for potty purposes that he can access via a dog door. The townhome that I live in now (in California) has a small (like 12x12) walled private backyard - small. I can't find anything like that around Dayton, except for single family homes. Even a lot of those don't have fenced backyards. Hmm...

^Your best bet (if possible) would be to rent somewhere like Cooper Place or any of the new stuff that Charlie Simms is building around downtown. It meets your criteria almost exactly.

Here is a link to Simms stuff out in Centerville that meets your criteria well...
Twin Lakes West | Centerville New Homes | Charles Simms Dev

That being said, very few of those, if any, are rentals. For the most part they are built to sell, each going for ~$150k. Dayton is a buyer's market. And at the same time Dayton has a tight rental market, so if you can it isn't a bad idea to just buy a house or condo instead of renting.


Otherwise, like the South Park and Oregon District community pages on Facebook. A lot of rentals get posted there when they crop up. And keep places like Beavercreek, Centerville, etc. in mind too, especially near the Mall at Fairfield Commons if you are dead set on that patch of grass outside your condo.
