Ill be moving to omaha / council bluffs soon and I need advice on cheap 1 bedroom apartments in a safe neighborhood close to council bluffs. I will be working with Cargill and i would also like to be close to nightlife if possible.
Downtown Omaha and the Old Market area is a happening place. But, I don't know how affordable it is. When I looked for a temporary place down there in 2004, it was pretty pricey. Some of the areas to the south of Downtown are cheap, but may not be considered very 'safe'.
You may find cheaper options in Council Bluffs. Not sure how the safety issue is over there.
edit - The generally accepted "bad part of town" is north Omaha, to the north and slightly west of downtown. We lived in one of the so-called nice areas of West Omaha (Rockbrook) and still had a car stolen right out of the driveway, so I tend to have a bad attitude about Omaha in general...
I used to live down off of 38th and Dodge, just west of downtown. The neighborhoods down there vary. It's nice for 2 blocks around, then crappy for 2, nice for 2.... I know the Old Market is Very Expensive.
I never did ask you Rob if you wanted that car back........LOL!!
I almost rented an apartment in the Ford Lofts building, on Dodge and 12th back in 2004. It was huge, 3 br 1700+ sq ft. They wanted $1200/month back in 2004. That building has converted to condos now. Ended up renting a townhome out in LaVista, we decided that downtown wasn't a good place to live with small kids, no outdoor space for them to play. It was pricey in LaVista too, but we had a brand new unit with an attached garage.
well i currently rent for 370 a month and its obvious that my rent will go up. I have a pretty nice truck and i dont want it driving off. ill drive my crappy neon to work every day, so mabey i can hide the 150. i was looking at some apartments straight north of the lake in council
Having a hard time remembering apartments. You are better off in CB. I know there is the Heights in CB. Parkwild is right down the hill but is a little older. If you find something let me know and I will let you know if it is an OK area and what the place it like.
