recently relocated to the area for work and staying temporarily with a friend, i am looking for a rental for my family so i can get them moved into the area at the end of december. craigslist and other sites have produced dismal results and after trying to work with a realtor shes pointing me to places that are everywhere except where i want to live.
we are in our 30's with two toddlers..lower mid income.. we are more of a quiet evening at home type rather than going out and being part of the social scene. we love markets, farmers markets, parks, libraries.. .and generally spending family time together. wife is a stay at home mom, and we will end up homeschooling. i typically would love a bike commute within a 20/30 minute range of upenn.
wife is a stay at home mom, so security and safety is a plus while i am at work.
hoping to find a 3 bedroom with central air at the least... and under a grand a month if possible and wondering if any current university city residents know of anything open and could make a reccomendation?
i hear the areas south of spruce, north of baltimore and east of 50th are the best.... but everyone has an opinion.
ive also tried a couple of apartment places in the area who have been advertising, but cant get anyone to call me back. :-/
any advice and help would be great.
