We try to help out on this forum, but Birmingham is really dozens of small communities, so we need more information to help you out. Can you tell us more about the two of you in terms of long-terms needs, interests, likes/dislikes? That way we can make the right suggestion for you.

Well, the best area will be Southside/Homewood/Mountain Brook and south of Red Mountain, generally speaking. But beyond that there will be lots of considerations, such as where you'll be working, do you like really artsy stuff, etc. etc.

Pull up a Birmingham map and work your way out from the job location. The main arteries 280/459/65 are traffic james during normal rush hours. Google Birmingham apartment, Birmingham rentals. There are some weekly publications which specialize in rental properties. The same for jobs. Without knowing some details such as budget/wants/musts ... there is no way to direct your search.

We really need to know if schools are important, how much commute you'll tolerate, and what your budget is. And if you have any definite musts or must-nots.

Yes schools are important. I will be working in Hoover and would like to live close to my job as possible. My budget is $800 to $1100. 3 bedroom and at least 2 bathroom and 2 car garage is a must have.

Sorry to ask a million questions. I promise we're really not trying to be difficult. But Hoover sprawls all over the place. Do you have an address for where you'll be working?

Got it. That helps a lot. Hoover is actually a really good place to live. You'll be working in the Galleria area, which is pretty heavy residential. Vestavia as well is a good place. If you have kids, both cities have exceptional schools and lots of good retail. If you keep your search within the 35216 and 35226 zip codes, you'll likely find what you need within a short commute of your job.

Here are a couple of sites: I think you'll be surprised at how affordable things are there compared to Southern California.

RentalHomesPlus.com | Homes for Rent - Houses, Condos, Townhomes and Duplexes | Rental Property

Apartments & Condos for Rent Listings - al.com

Obviously, there's no substitute for seeing for yourself, but these should help you a lot.
