There are lots of great apartment communities in Lexington. Try looking on apartment.com! If you are in need of a house to puchase in Lexington, look on LBAR.com that web site will give you a complete listing of all houses listed in the real estate community. When you are looking for schools google Lexington Fayette Urban County Gov. or LFUCG schools. That site will direct you to statistics on schools in the area. Good Luck!

I think we wouldn't go above a $1000/month rent. We're just so nervous about moving to an area that we don't know! We're npt sure where to start looking. thanks for the help

I've noticed entire houses for rent under $1000 in nice established neighborhoods in the SW of Lexington (Area 4) right near me. Some apartment communities have other advantages like pools and clubhouses. How long will you be living in Lexington? How many bedrooms do you need? What area do you need to access for work?

My experience with Lexington is that it's a very friendly place, especially for families with kids.

Try Rabbit Run, Grand Reserve, Oak Grove, Park Place OR you could probably rent a house easy in a good area for less than $1000

thanks y'all. We would just be renting till we found something permanent. We prefer 3 bedrooms, since we have 1 daughter and all of our family and friends won't be close by. Do you know if there is a website that lists some houses for rent?

I did notice a house near us that was just rented that is managed by Homes for Rent in Lexington Kentucky - Rental Homes for Rent . Other places you can look would include craigslist: lexington, KY classifieds for jobs, apartments, personals, for sale, services, community, and events or KY Kernel (broken link) although this option would lean heavily towards student housing and apartments. There is also Homepage | www.kentucky.com.

I would highly recommend that you don't rent any home or apartment sight unseen if you can help it. If you are looking for short-term housing (say a week or two) until you find permanent housing, I would check out these 2 sites: Relocation Services in Lexington, Kentucky - Lexington Relocation Services or VESTA Executive Housing

We used Vesta to get a furnished apartment when we first came on a fact-finding tour of Lexington and the price was comparable to a hotel but much more comfortable, especially with kids.
