I have not been in Fl and I will start my study at FSU in the next Fall. I read that the zip cod 32312 has the best public schools in Tallahassee ( I have 4 children ). I have looked for property in 32312 for rent whose rent is less than (or equal to ) 1300$ / month using many different websites but I found that such houses are really few. What I found that I liked are just three!!!. So, I have the following questions:

1)Is the area 32312 so expensive?
2) If I found a property whose rent is less than 1200, does this means that there is something wrong with that property??
3) I read that FL has plenty of snakes. I am really afraid of snake. So, I wonder if it is common that snakes appear inside the houses or in its yards.
5) Do the properties that are for rent appear exclusively on the websites or I may find property for rent if I travelled to Tally and visited the area?
6) What are the best zip codes to live in if 32312 was impossible???

Sorry for my long post but I need answers for my questions. I appreciate deeply any reply

Default It Doesn't Matter What The ZIP Code Is

The question of schools is hard to answer, not knowing the ages of your children, or how long you'll be in this area. (That is, does high school matter to you, or are your kids too young for that?) But here's a list of the zip codes of the best (meaning they received the highest grades in 2012) elementary, middle, and high schools in Leon County.

Buck Lake Elementary -- 32317
Canopy Oaks Elem. -- 32303
Chaires Elem. -- 32317
Conley Elem. -- 32311
DeSoto Trail Elem. -- 32309
Gilchrist Elem. -- 32312
Hawks Rise Elem. -- 32312
Killearn Lakes Elem. -- 32312
Moore Elem. -- 32308
Roberts Elem. -- 32309
Sealey Elem. -- 32312
Sullivan Elem. -- 32308

Arts & Sciences Middle -- 32308
Cobb Middle -- 32308
Deerlake Middle -- 32312
Montford Middle -- 32309
Swift Creek Middle -- 32317

Chiles High -- 32312
Leon High -- 32308
Lincoln High -- 32311
SAIL High -- 32304

So you see, not all of the good schools in Tallahassee are in the 32312 zip code area. And the school zone boundaries don't go according to zip codes. I'd recommend that you look at the Leon County Schools map and look for housing in the areas served by the good schools. You should be able to find a home with good schools for $1200 a month, although you may have to do a lot of searching to find it.

WellSoneMoon, Thank you so much for your reply. It helps me a lot. Do you recommend specific zons I should avoid due to the safety issues? Choosing a safe area is very important for every one. I am international student who will live there with his family. So, It would be impossible for me to succeed in my study if I feel that my family is in unsafe area.

Take a look at the map of the city. Tallahassee is divided into 4 quadrants, on either side of Tennessee St./Mahan Drive going east and west, and on either side of Monroe Street going north and south. In general if you live anywhere in the northeast quadrant, i.e., north of Mahan and east of Monroe, you'll be in a safe area. There are some good areas outside of the northeast quadrant too, for example Southwood, which is in the southeast quadrant. You should probably avoid the neighborhoods adjacent to FSU.

I'm partial to Killearn Lakes (32312). We lived in Killearn Commons for 13 years...loved it! Great schools, and they were right around the corner. That area has grown quite a bit. We rented our house 2 years ago and moved to Charlotte, NC. We sold the house last year...it was on the market for 2 days...the first couple that looked at it bought it.

I can send you a DM with our Realtor's name...she handles rentals, and has been a personal friend for 14 years....she's wonderful!
