Right now we are leaning toward the Northside because what we actually want in a rental is out of our means although it is in a worn down neighborhood.
Price ranges 750 to 1500 fr a 4 bedroom, as long as it isnt near a college.
The house we want and would fit our family is right across from Columbus State so for sure 1500 off top.
We have found really good properties off of livingston avenue near Nationwide Childrens Hospital.
If you dont mind a little crime and keep to yourself that is okay .. there is a really good elementary school there. I suggest lottery for middle and high school. There is one really great middle school called Yorktown and there is also some really nice homes in that area. Going to run you 900 and up for good living, single family homes. but there are some ok homes and apartments in the area as well.
Also the far westside.. It is being revitalized .. because of the casino. there is a wonderful apartment complex FAMILY ORIENTED across from there.
Dont go south .. lol
As you can see there are many realtors willing to help. We are a helpful lot!
Welcome!! We look forward to you and your family moving here and becoming part of the central Ohio community. Columbus and the metro areas have a lot to offer. There are so many communities to consider.
Will you be able to stay with friends or family while you are getting settled before you look for a home. This would help you in being able to put some eyeballs on different areas first before you decide on which home and area you want. Obviously I am limited in providing you with much in the way of information because I have no idea of your taste, price range in either renting or buying a home or other subjective intangibles which are all important in making a decision. I can suggest you can go to columbushomesforyou.kwrealty.com and look around.
I can list some desirable communities for you to consider: Older area/ upper price range- Bexley, Upper Arlington. Newer areas/upper price range- Dublin and other areas NW of the 270 outerbelt and New Albany.
Newer areas/ upper to middle price point, Gahanna, Westerville, Worthington, Hilliard. This is just a few but these areas have nice schools, parks and recreation.
I would like to make myself available to you and your family. If you would call I can ask you some questions to get an idea of what you might want and need and then send you listing directly for you to review and consider. The market is still very good though home prices are moving up.
