I posted a thread on here a while ago asking for help on areas to live because my boyfriend and I might be moving from Milwaukee to Columbus in the next few months. I was told Short North, German Village, Dublin, and a few others. Does anyone have suggestions on apartments within these areas? I've attempted to look online (Craigslist, apartments.com, etc.) and have had ZERO luck!

What are the average prices for a 2 bedroom in these areas? Everything I was coming up with was $1500 or more... which is out of our price range. Looking to ideally stay around $800 - $900. We could do $1000 if the perfect place came along. As for type of housing, our preferences would go 1)Townhouse, 2) Apartment complex, 3) Single Family home, 4) Duplex.

We're both 25, like to go out on the weekends (15 min cab ride is ok), and would like an area for young professionals. We're not looking to live downtown or right near a college.

Thanks for the help everyone! I'm clueless about Columbus and it's really discouraging looking online!

Downtown to OSU along High Street is where it's at if you're young single and going out. Arena District, Short North, Victorian Village, Dublin if you're more suburban and like outerlying areas. Easton is good also.

FYI - Dublin, Easton are the Outer areas, the others are all b-tween Downtown/OSU. Action is at the core of the city in C-bus. Hit the burbs if you want calm. OSU is a couple miles north of Downtown, the Short Nort, Vic. Village, Ital. Vill. are between OSU/Downtown off either side of High Street. I'd suggest Victorian Village most. C-bus has 2bdrms in the 600 range, don't pay over 8-1k unless you're buying something brand new or going for the glam factor in rentals.

I really liked Grandview. Reasonable prices, decent housing. Nice neighborhood. Pretty centrally located to different parts of the city.

I like the Island Club Apartments in Dublin? Their on Bethel Rd... not far from 315, really close to massive shopping areas on Henderson (a block down) and Sawmill (a block over) The supermarket, auto store, furnature store, dollar store and skyline chillie and some other restaurants are in walking distance (I'm lazy so that means they're really close). The Carage shopping center that's huge with walmart is two lights away across from Graters Icecream factory & store. It's a nice place to live I've been here for a few weeks and I love how close everything is. I'm never in the car more than 10 minutes and there's no traffic ever. The community has a pool indoor and out door basketball courts, raquetball court, state of the art gym and sauna, outdoor volley ball courts and little lakes are strategically placed for a island retreat right in the "city" Technically it's the outskirt but it's less than 10 minutes from the heart of the city. Reasonable prices that are negotiable. They have a website to check out too. The management company is really good about keeping up with renovations and pets are allowed.
