We are looking at renting a house in Berea. Where are some good areas and where are the ones to avoid? I know every town and city has good and bad areas. We don't drink or use drugs, and we are very quiet. Looking for a good area to raise our son.

By all means stay away from Slate Lick Road, Boone Street, Haiti Road. I am sure there are others but these are the ones that stand out the most.

I would try renting upstairs of the city police dept. Good luck! Also, stay out if their wrong doings and one won't be evicted. Berea is getting to be just a bad of city as any other. Alot of stealing going on to buy their pain pills Smart Azz young police officers ruin the city too. My advice would be to head to the woods and take your double barrell with you. I knew these times we're living in would be coming, but didn't realize they would be on us so soon.

Also, Forest, Center and Jackson streets. Central and Washington Avenues, Reid Hill, Broadway, both north and south. Oak, Maple, Jefferson, Burdett, Lewis, Lake, Dinsmore, Herndon, Phillips and High streets. Morning View and Silver Creek drives.

Good subdivisions:
Treemont, Oaks, Creekside Village, Norwood, Dixie Park (Roselawn Addition), Homestead Estates, Suncrest Meadows, Burnamwood, Central Park subdivision (east side only) Moonlight drive area, Subdivision beside of Silver Creek School and the one just past it on the left.[expensive but very, very nice.]

Hope that helps!

One other thing... Can you post a price point you are comfortable with? It's still a buyers market out there. If you are in the 150k to 200k range, you have a lot of outstanding choices.

I beg to differ about Center ST. I live there and know of only 1 person who's into the drug scene the rest of us live quietly and peacefully. I live in betwween the 4 way stop and the Log House and mostly older people live in the area. We've never had a break in or any trouble or anything stolen from our yard.

Geraldine Mason has a couple of rental houses. I know one of them just came open. Look her number up in the book and give her a call. She lives on Big Hill.
