Well I just accepted a job offer in Pocatello and will be moving up there in about a month. I was just curious as to where I should look for living arrangements. I'm going to rent at least the first year I'm up there so I was wondering if anyone knew of any good apt's, duplex, or I'm also considering townhomes/condos. Any help would be appreciated!.

Price range would help us in giving advice, and who did you hire on with if you don't mind me asking?

Also, do you have an SO coming with you (at some point in the future)? Any pets? Special needs/wants (e.g. a fireplace, etc.)?

Question Is pw72's old address available?

I agree with the earlier comments. That is a very broad question. Will you be a college student, someone coming to work for a chain retailer/restaurant, or a new layer of administration at PMC? The income brackets are not the same.

Plus, Breer23 makes a good point, it not only matters what YOU want, but others who will be moving with you. Do you have kids and are schools an issue?

You may want to contact pw72 as he just moved to Idaho Falls recently. Potentially, his former address is available....

More information would be helpful to know how to better answer your question. Also, I haven't seen TwinPrism around for a while, but hope he still checks in. TwinPrism is someone you could DM or ask a question of here. He knows the Pocatello area well.

Well, I guess I better respond. I was renting a condo on the east bench. As far as I know it is available. If the OP wants more info they can PM me.

I have found Pocatello to be "rental-sufficient", but with that having been said, not a huge amount of options. I found IF with quite a bit more variety when it comes to rentals, and generally better quality. IF also has a number of what I call suburban-type complexes, complete with clubhouse, many ammenities, etc, where Poky is more working-type apartments/condos, probably having a lot to do with ISU...there is only one large community of apartments/townhomes in Bannock Co, that being in Chubbuck just north of I-86.

Generally, rents for apartments range from around $475-600 for a 1-br, $500-650 for a 2-br in the Pocatello area. Townhomes with garages are a bit more. Homes can vary greatly, but add atleast a couple hundred to those prices generally. Of course, you can find less or more, that is just an average.

Hey pw72,

Sorry, not trying to put you on the spot. I meant it more to be funny than anything - mostly. However, I thought you may know about available rentals or people to contact etc.

Hope your move went well.

Thanks for taking the time to answer. This should be a really valuable post to many this next year.

Sorry guys I've been pretty busy with the whole moving process and just now checked back on this thread.

I'm single and won't have any one moving with me, and no pets.

Looking for a 2 bedroom but am also looking at 1 bedroom.

I'm a recent grad and will be working for an Accounting firm.

Price range would be right around 500, but no more than 550 a month.

Hopefully that answers some of the questions....
