Greetings,

I recently relocated to the Omaha area - and I am currently looking for a place to rent.

I am working on my dissertation (grrrr. . . ) and my budget is fairly restricted. I understand that the downtown area can be a bit pricy, but I have seen several comments that there are apartments downtown from as little as $350 per month.

I would like to get a place (large studio or 1 bed):
North of Leavenworth,
South of Douglas,
East of 16th, and
West of 9th.
I would like to stay under $550 per month (hopefully including parking)

There seem to be numerous apartment above shops and restaurant -- but I am having a hard time finding any information . . .

Thanks for your time and assistance,

Clairvaux

Given the location you listed you're never going to find anything in your desired price rance. $350 a month for rent is unheard and you picked the priciest part of DT overall.

$550 is more doable but still scraping the bottom of the barrell in the location you specified. I can put a list together later of places that might work.

Do you not have a car? Are you looking to live downtown because of transportation, or lack thereof?

Omaha is not a difficult city to drive in. It's pretty easy to live a few miles west and drive downtown.

If they're from LA they're not going to think anything of a commute here. I'm guessing it could be money reasons for wanting to live down here.

I've heard there were apartments in the old market at that price range, but they are never available.
