I have seen a lot of apartment threads on CU, but I haven't seen too many asking about the best strategy to find apartments in Columbus. I'd love to get advice from people who have or are apartment hunting in Columbus.
Is there a service that helps with apartment hunting in Columbus?
Do you find the best way to find affordable and safe apartments in Columbus is to walk around neighborhoods you like?
Is it more who-you-know to find good/safe apartments in downtown? And, if so, who should I be making friends with ;)
A brief on what I'm looking for: safe, affordable (b/w $600-$800) apartments in or around downtown Columbus. Would love an older apartment with architectural detail, but honestly will take what I can afford. And, would really really prefer a place with either W/D provided or a W/D hookup... don't want to feel like I'm in college still. Any thoughts/advice would be really appreciated!
Thank you so much!
