Hi there, first time poster here. My name's Holly. My husband, newborn and myself are born and raised in the Ozarks but relatively new to Springfield. We've rented a place for about a year now (lease is up in May) and want to find a place that we could settle down for a few years as we are sick of moving. This place we sort of picked as it was the first thing we found, so I would like to be a bit picky this time.

Anyway, I was wondering if any of you could give some suggestions on places to rent that are safe and clean. I'm tired of living next door to riff-raff and having the police over all the time. A house/duplex would be nice, but I would probably go for an apartment if it were the right one. We have an 8 year old declawed cat, and would like to maybe get a puppy one of these days, so pet friendly is important too. Also, our price range is $500-650.

Thanks for your time!
-Holly

Default Place to rent in Springfield

I live in Tall Grass apartments on Battlefield and would recommend them. The property is well taken care of, management is very good to work with and though the rental rates are probably on the high end of the market, the inside of the apartments are also high-end. Now, you mentioned puppy and I would ask that you please be sensitive to your neighbors needs and not get a "yipper" if you're in an apartment. Just because I rent, that doesn't mean I'm ok with being bombarded by noises from my neighbors and their pets. And, as far as I'm concerned, anyone that thinks otherwise is "low rent" and I don't want them for friends, neighbors or relatives - thank you very much. My apologies if that comes across a little too harsh but you said it yourself ... "riff-raff" can be a real problem in apartments!

However I'm wondering why you want an apartment if you plan to find a place and stay for a while.

Sure, the news about the economy is all over the map, one day we're on a rebound, the next day the commercial real estate market is on the edge of a crash, but bottom line, now is a good time to invest in a home as long as you buy for the right price.

I'm not a RE agent, but would definitely encourage anyone looking for a long-term residence to consider buying a house. I would also encourage you to bargain hard and don't be afraid to walk away if you don't get "your deal". It definitely is still a buyer's market.

That said, I would also encourage you to look at the Craigslist rental section. Lots and lots of specials are being posted right now, including some pretty good deals on duplexes.

I used to live in Weaver Creek Apartments and they were really great. It is located very south of the city towards Nixa. They are super clean and have been there for I think 2 yrs, so they are new too... Another thing as far as house rentals go, I rented from the Jacques Company a few years ago and they are great too.

As far as rif rafs go, I suggest paying a little more for a better area and you won't be bothered! Hope this helps...

Thanks for the suggestions.

We are looking into maybe renting from TLC properties as they seem to have a lot of amenities and are a little pricier (which is a good thing sometimes). I agree about yipper dogs, I think we are probably going to wait until we get our own place to get a dog. I went to an apartment complex and someone had a huge german shep in there! Crazy!

We can't wait to own a house, but unfortunately we just can't afford it right now. I'm not blaming the economy. We have student loans, and the like, and we just can't take on a mortgage. Someday though.
