There are plenty of great things going on around here, with fairs, festivals, sports, and campus events to keep things interesting.

Cheap apartments are much more common than high-dollar homes. Typically, rental rates range from $275 to $1,000, with a few pricier rental homes from time to time. An efficiency rents for about $300, one bedroom apartments rent for $400-$500, and one to two bedroom apartments or townhomes can cost anywhere from $500-$1,000. Rental homes are all over the place, with "cozy" rental homes in the $500-$600 range and nice, big country homes costing around $900.
Renting in Chillicothe apartments is all about community extras. Amenities such as laundry facilities, swimming pools, playgrounds, tennis courts, and clubhouses make apartment life pretty tempting. However, you can also find some rental homes with great extras such as a washer and dryer or a nice, big fenced-in yard for your dog to play.
Speaking of canines, there are quite a few pet-friendly apartments and rental homes in Chillicothe. However, many apartments don't accept dogs over 40 lbs. Even dogs over 20 lbs. may have a hard time gaining acceptance around here. And, if you're lucky enough to snag a pet-friendly pad, then expect to pay a $100-$200 pet fee as well as a $20- $30 in pet rent.
So, that's the Chillicothe way of life these days. Best of luck on the rental hunt!
