I'm moving to Columbus in July-August and I'm looking for a 1 bedroom w/ a den or 2 bedroom apartment in the $1200 range. I saw some newer condos/lofts but majority seem to closer to $1500...Any suggestion would be great!
Looking for an Apartment in Short North/Victorian Village/Italian Village

Unfortunately, CU Urban Living currently has very few rental properties listed (0 in Short North, Victorian Village, and Italian Village.) I recommend http://metro-rentals.com/ and, of course, Craigslist.
$1200 is an achievable target for the area, but you'll likely end up in a walkup or old-build divided house listed by a private owner or small company that owns multiple properties throughout town. There are a few new builds and refurbished buildings in the Italian/Victorian area, but as you noticed, they're mostly parceled as condos and are priced accordingly--i.e. sky-high--so I wouldn't recommend them unless you have a phobia about 19th century architecture.
Depending on your reasons for focusing on the Italian/Victorian neighborhoods, you might also want to look into the Harrison West area, which is close to Victorian Village but can feature significantly cheaper prices.
Listings, especially cheap listings, will begin to open up as the summer kicks in and university students move out.
Anyway, that's been my experience.
wanderlust could/should rent 1.5 of those
I lived in this exact apartment for 2 years with my wife. The location is nice and the street is a bit quieter since it is a one-way to high. We loved it and Adam Minton is a great landlord/owner.
Great, I'll check out those sites and start checking out other areas too. I've only been to Columbus once and drove by the Short North area & it looked like an awesome area...if anyone else can recommend similar neighborhoods I could look into...
