I am looking for a good place to rent in Junction City. Hopefully some of you can share your experience and knowledge of particular areas. Or even better, particular apartments. I will be working at Fort Riley and prefer JC for the short commute.


Thanks!

We haven't lived in Junction for almost 10 years but keep an eye on it from afar. They have built a lot of new housing and apartments and they are really high priced which is why we haven't moved back. House prices tripled. Pretty much your best bet if you don't get any other responses is to look at all the prices, lower prices will put you in undesirable locations quickly. Everything east of 6th Street used to be the places not to be. Once in the area, you should be able to get a better feel of where to stay away from. You can always try to see if Post Housing will talk with you about the housing off-base as they used to maintain a black list for really unacceptable properties. Some realtors might advise you but most are very careful about making such comments. We always liked JC as we both worked on Fort Riley and the kids went to school there.

They have a few new developments built. They're a little more expensive for rent wise, between 800-1000/month. There is Ashton Place they're a little cheaper, not luxury,but decent apartments. The Bluffs is nice, a little more expensive, but quite a few people I know are about to afford it. You'll be able to find houses even from the 400-600 range that people are renting out. You can check the newspaper online www.dailyu.com. Developers drove the home prices up so some rent prices went up. the homes that were built by developers were too expensive too buy, so they had to resort to renting therm out which is why they cost a little more. Local property owners are lower in order to compete with them. Rent prices were high for a while, but they're going down. There is also Freedom Place, it is almost right outside the Grant gate, not sure about they're prices, but they are nice. All theses places are a very sure commute. I'm renting a 3/1 on Jackson and only paying 650$, so it's not too bad.

I can't offer advice on housing in JC, but I can offer one local point of interest you should visit at least once: the U.S. Cavalry Museum at Riley. The military rarely gets the credit it deserves for its great museums, and this one is no exception, plus nearby is the 1st Infantry Division museum. For example, when I was there it had an excellent exhibit on the Buffalo Soldiers, and probably still does. (It's been awhile and museum exhibits shift and move.)

The statue out front is especially touching. It's a horse, head downward, looking pretty tired. It honors all the horses and mules who served, and often died, in U.S. service. A must-experience.

Thanks for the info.

I'm looking to find something in the 550-700 maybe more, depending on what's included with the lease and the area.

I might consider Manhattan if there are places available with more to offer for the same price.
