Wife & I plan to move to KY...either Madisonville or Murray. We're retired. (65+) We like Murray, but we would like to rent. Looking for a decent apartment complex with 2+ bed, 1.5 bath, garage.
Any advice about which ones to look at and which to avoid.

I have lived in Murray since 1980 and I need to know one thing first. Are you willing to live next to college students? This complex of apts in Murray has a mix of college students and young families and some single adults. A two bedroom, 2 bath at about 1,000 sq/ft will run you $600/month here. They are all fairly new buildings and have central air, free water and free cable.

You will want to stay away from anywhere near the campus and anywhere true north of town, unless you like living with students. On the southwest of town, there are higher-end duplexes. The have 3 bedrooms, 2 baths. The duplexes are seperated with a garage. The location alone will cost you, as these usually run around $800/month. Not sure if water is included or not. The problem is, they are not owned (usually) by a set company. They are usually rented out by the builders.

If you want to rent a house, the simple rule is to stay above 9th street. Maybe these sites will help you out:

Thanks, KY Dad. Not looking for a lot of noisy kids and their loud music. We'll definitely stay away from campus life except to take advantage of some events.
$650/month tops is in our budget. We have a house cat. That limits us.

Not to hijack a thread, but kydad do you know anything about a large apt. complex in Hardin? I was at a car dealer over there last week, and noticed this complex. Seems out-of-place for a town the size of Hardin. Looks as though the town's whole population could live there. It's a private complex, not the county housing authority or anything.

If it's the one's I am thinking of, they do take Section 8. They also had a child get raped there and they guy was just recently caught. I think it is Hilldale or Hillwood apartments...or something like that.

That's it. The place doesn't look that bad. Guess you can't judge a book by it's cover.

Yeah. Here is the link to that Hilldale rape:

There are a few apartments in that range. If you don't mind bug-infested dumps and Section 8 housing. In fact, I think even those apartments are more than $200-300. Good luck with that.
