Just moved to AZ from Washington state about a month ago. I currently live in Wickenburg but in a few months, will be moving to Phoenix. I am looking for a cute older historic apartment building...preferably under 750 a month. Amenities are not too important to me...I don't need fancy, and I understand crime is going to be an issue in any large city. What I would like is a cute, quaint neighborhood. Am I describing something that even exists in Phoenix, lol?

Any advice is greatly appreciated. It is me, my fiance, and we are both going to be college students.

I would check out craigslist apartments section and type in historic.

FYI - I don't live in a historic apartment but a vintage 1960 apartment complex. All utilities are included, however, there is no A/C. Just a shared system swamp cooler(doesn't cool in summer). And since its managed by the landlord, its not turned on during winter or spring.

Hint: check out the neighborhoods along the Light Rail; many of them are pre 1960

And many of them along the Metro tend to be less suburban-esque and more fitting of your description.

I seem to recall quite a few older apartment complexes near Park Central, located around Osborn or Earll between Central & 7th Avenues. Not sure how historic they are, but most of them have been around since the 1950s or '60s, so they might be worth a try. If I remember correctly, most of the complexes seemed to be kept up very well, at least on the outside ... the insides might be a different story.

Those are condos, not apartment buildings. However, you can probably find some rental units in them.

I'm looking for something exactly like this in the Park Central area or more down along Central Ave towards the downtown area. Seeing some pretty good deals on condos right now.
