We are currently living in Northern Ky. We have 3 kids. We want to rent a house in a nice neighborhood close to schools and shopping. We can only pay $600-$700 in rent. I've searched the local Fla. newspapers and can't seem to find a cheap house to rent. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Check the 32792 area code. Used to live there - I remember quite a few rental properties - not sure of the price.

Um, from what I've seen, a 3 bedroom is going to run you $1,000-1,300.

Try Craigslist.com I just looked and there was a few houses in your price range but I must warn you that it is going to be REALLY hard finding something nice and or safe in that price range. Also look in the classifieds for the OrlandoSentinel.com. Good luck!

Hopefully you'll luck out and find a bargain. From the searches I've done for 1/1 apartments, they start at 600 and of course go much higher.

You will not find a 3 bedroom rental in Orlando for that amount. Period. I hate to discourage you but that is the simple truth. There are subsidized apartments (they have income restrictions) which will get you a three bedroom in the $900 range. The web site for the apartments I mention is www.ced-concord.com (broken link). I would live in one of their properties only as a last resort. Some of them are quite nice but the management has a bad reputation in resident relations and you will never get your deposit returned to you.

I agree with the above poster. Even in the "rough" areas you won't find a 3 bedroom home for less than $1000 a month.

You could find a 3 bed condo in a nice area for around $1050, but it wont be close to any good schools. I hate to say it and have done so in the past, but you do need to be realistic in your budget. For a 3 bed house in a good neighbourhood which will offer good shopping and great schools you need to be looking to spend over $1000 at a minimum.

Even on craigslist where you can find good deals through private landlords you wont find a property that meets your requirements for that price. Keep in mind if you do find one, make sure you research it well because just like everything else in life, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Good luck

Not only do I think that that price range will not net you a 3 bedroom, I believe that if it could, it wouldn't be safe or very nice. You really have to focus on market differences between two cities in different areas of the country. There are very few homes in this area in that range and the ones that are, well, make me concerned for your kids or your safety.

You may have to squeeeeeeze into a 2 bedroom or up the price range. So the real question is, why the low rent budget ? If it's pay related, maybe there is some local assistance funding to help you out. You have to also consider the fact that a lot of landlords use signage to advertise and do not even use the internet, and cant afford to run it in the paper for weeks on end. So you my need to drive around and take a looky. I know, I know, that's probably not what you want to do, or what you may be able to do, but, it may just be the best answer. Just tryin to help.
