Looking for a house to rent in Ann Arbor or Ypsi
Please let me know if you have any leads or advice on where to find listings apart from craigslist and mlive.

Right now we can afford up to 1400 a month but I'm looking for part-time work to extend that range a little.

What we are hoping for, in a nutshell: 2 or 3 bedrooms (one w Eastern or Southern exposure), at least 1.5 bathrooms, plus play space for Rosie, computer/den space, space for bookshelves, a good sized kitchen for cooking, dining rm space, (can be combined in great rm) a front hall closet, a back yard w deck or patio, preferably fenced in (to keep Rosie in, not for privacy). Would like a pantry and a linen closet, can make do w basement storage. Need parking for two cars and 3 bikes.

Preferably within a 15 min drive of the U of M medical complex, where Brian will work, in a family neighborhood w established trees, with a park and play structure within walking or short driving distance.

I would look at www.zillow.com as well. They have a "For Rent" section, and a lot of things available that don't show up on craigslist/mlive. Sometimes the listings stay up after the house is rented out, but then you get in contact with a realtor that has other for rent listings, which can't be bad.

Seconding the Zillow recommendation -- we're in a process of slowly looking, and Andy's been using it a lot.

I realised I should actually *ask* Andy, he also suggests PadMapper which uses Craigslist data (and others) to plot places on a map, can make it easier to find places in a particular location.

I wish you luck! I may be in Ann Arbor in late July for a conference and I'd love to see you all.

Thanks! Padmapper looks really useful.

It would be great to see you! Hope that works out.

Moving back? I hope I'll have a chance to drive over and visit!--it's certainly more likely that it's been for a while. Whoo hee!
