I may be relocating to the Des Moines area and wonder, in additional to affordable, nice and safe housing - preferably a duplex or house - what landlords should I avoid? Which companies have a bad reputation...speaking from experience here. I usually only know this after renting, not before. I'm a mature adult, i.e., not a youngster, so looking for a quiet, safe neighborhood with a responsible, ethical and reasonable landlord. Any suggestions?

Just a heads up WIWoman - for whatever reason historically the forum doesn't have a lot of individuals experienced with renting in the metro. A lot of times rent type questions go unanswered but hopefully someone has some thoughts for you that might be helpful.

A fellow Wisconsinite transplant! Welcome to the Des Moines area. Can you give us some more info about what area of the metro you'll be working in, what your budget is, and what your needs are in terms of space?
