I have a choice of relocating with one of my employers either to St. Louis or Indy. This appears to be a done deal now.

How cat friendly are the apartments in the immediate Indy area? I have two, both of which are homeless cats that I adopted and I want to keep them until I move into my house. I figure I will be renting for a six month period. Want to stay under $500 a month. Prefer a place with a patio or balcony since one of the cats likes to be outdoors a lot.

Any suggestions?

Good luck for under $500 a month. Cats are no big deal, very few dont accept pets

Thanks. Some areas of the country it is a big deal. My brother just rented a place in a small town west of Brownsburg because according to him there aren't very many good apartments that are affordable in the immediate Indy area. Hopefully his idea of a bad place and mine will be a little different.

While many apartments might accept pets, you should expect to pay an extra pet deposit and an extra monthly fee for having them. It's also likely you'll have to pay a higher rent for a lease of less than a year.

The smallest 1br at my community starts at $510. However, you pay ~$50 more per month for the 6 mo lease, I believe (most apts charge this).

You get 470 sqft. It's about a 35 minute drive (12 miles) from downtown. Here's a link. Floor Plans for Carlyle Court apartments

Places isn't as good as it used to be, but still good enough to recommend.

If you dial the quality down a little, you might be able to find a small room @ Lake Castleton or one of the apartments on Allisonville north of 40th (Villa Paree, Fountain Parc) within your price range. I haven't lived in those communities but their location is decent.

Good luck.

Thanks for the tips. I would only be renting for a few months. I own a house and just need to do some work to it before I can move into it.
