Downtown Dayton’s Historic ‘Hoods
No matter what area you zero in on, expect some competition for vacant units. Serious prospectors should arrive early to open houses and bring along the necessary paperwork (ie: checkbook.) Big city transplants will find most area rents to be obscenely low, but should bear in mind the fact that many of Dayton’s older properties have not been renovated or restored and can often lack modern upgrades.
This sub-section of southeast Dayton is the city’s current arty “hot zone” for renters. Chock full of galleries, pubs, coffee shops and shopping opps - it’s walkable
Grafton Hill Historic District
This eighborhood offers single-family homes and “doubles” (local slang for two-family homes) in the Queen Anne, Classical Revival, Craftsman, and Victorian styles as well as a smattering of totally non-historic apartment complexes.
The area offers easy access to practically everything, along with a wide array of both rentals and renters.
St. Anne’s Hill
Competition is moderate in this up-and-coming ‘hood.
Rents in the area are low.
Hope these Dayton tidbits help, best of luck in your apartment search!
