The best way to find an area you want to live in is to tour with a Realtor, to get your feet wet. I am a Bloomington native, and have 10+ years experience as a Realtor. You are welcome to text, call or email me. Thanks!
There are a lot of possibilities in Bloomington but remember you are in a college town and there are students everywhere. Please email me your price range and your general needs and wants and I will send you some listing for you to review.
