My husband is taking a job in Clinton later this month and we need to find a place for us and our two young daughters and my Chihuahua. We will probably rent until we can save a bit to put into buying a homeve searched all over the internet and can only find a select few rental options. Does anyone have information on which Realtors/landlords to talk to? Names of people with personally rented property?.we would like a 3 bedroom house but would beok in an apartment. My husband starts on the 27 of this month and me and the kids are tentatively looking at arriving after thanksgiving. Our oldest daughter is in kindergarten so info on schools and teachers is greatly appreciated! Also any events or activities nearby to take the kids to,(girls,ages 2 and 5)
God Bless!

I used this list and called all of the landlords on it and asked if they had anything available. Usually you can find one or two.

Don't rent from D&D. Their weekly rent is for people who can't do math.$200 a week means you paid $800 a month for your one room shack. Lots of people end up living in a hotel when they get to Clinton bc of the housing shortage. Try looking in surrounding towns, Arapaho, Weatherford, Cordell, Custer City. The pickings are slim. If you have to live in a hotel go with a well known name brand hotel.

Thank you! We are wanting to rent short term to get settled in and if we like it enough, probably buy a house as soon as possible.we are looking into Weatherford right now, even though his job is in Clinton. We will also have 2 small dogs, one chiuahhah(I never can spell it haha) and a Pekingese puppy coming with us....we are leaving our cat back in Tennessee with family. Thank you all for the information. How are tornados there? Lol they've got me nervous! And which schools in the Weatherford/Clinton. Area are best? My oldest is in kindergarten and my youngest enters pre k this fall. Also, what kind of family or kids activities are there? With the husband having such long hours I tend to get into lots of fun stuff to do with my kids to pass the time and get us out of the house. Thank you

Schools in Clinton are terrible, as is most of Oklahoma. You want a good school then consider moving to somewhere around Burns Flat. No crime, no druggies walking the streets, Burns Flat is the safest and best city to live in, in my opinion. Other cities talk down on it out of pure jealousy I think. While you hear of rapes, murder and drug dealing going on in Clinton, you won't find that in BF.

You are smoking crack if you think Burns Flat, meth capitol of western Oklahoma, is a better place to live than Clinton or Weatherford. Rapes, murders, and drug deals in Clinton? What newspaper are you reading. I think Weatherford's crime rate was higher that Clinton's last year. There are ways to check crime rates and school ratings online. You are just going to get a bunch of windbags' opinions on Topix. Most of the schools around here are fine. They each have their pros and cons. The cost of living is higher in Weatherford because of the college. The people in Clinton are a little less stuck up. Cordell is a nice town but there is nothing to do. Well really there is really nothing to do anywhere out here. Don't worry about the tornados. In 30 something years, I've never seen one. Went to the basement ONE time because we lost our TV signal and didn't know what was coming. The weather here is fun. You can get "Welcome packets" from the local Chamber of Commerce with lots of good info.
i agree

I have heard HORRIBLE things about burns flat. When moving to this part of the state, several family members that live around her forbid me to move there because of drugs and crime.

Drugs and crime in Burns Flat?

Where?

Lived here nearly three years and have yet to see or hear of a bad crime. Elk City? Read the paper, it's every day. Clinton? Same thing, read the paper.

Like I said...people around here are jealous because there is a waiting list on nearly every rent house in Burns Flat.

You got pregnant teens in Clinton, cops that pull you over to flirt with your wife, meth heads and crackheads walking the streets at night. Drive through burns flat at 3 am, ANYWHERE in the city. I bet you don't see a single person out or doing bad. Now drive through the "ghetto" of Clinton at that same time.

Maybe it's because BF is 99% white?

Or maybe it's because BF is like a tenth of the size?... And it's not in the papers because BF cops don't do shit and everyone gets away with it. There is a waiting list because it's such a crap place to live everything is ridiculously cheap.

And what!? Oh my goodness! The "ghetto" has crime!? Who would have thunk it.

Exactly correct, the crime in Burns Flat goes under reported and under punished. If you are looking to set up a meth lab that is the place to do it. The irony is that everyone wants to live there because the rent is so cheap because nobody wants to live there. To brag that there is less crime because the population is 99% white is an ignorant racist statement. The town is full of oilfield trash with more money than sense and a bunch of meth heads. If you want your kids to play sports or be in activities like music or cheerleading you need to stick to the bigger schools. There are more opportunities.

Keep reaching, maybe you will find something true.

Call me racist all you want, I don't give a damned. A city with 99% white people will have less crime than one without. I say the things people think and want to say, but don't have the balls.

You silly Elk City and Clinton trash, talking down on Burns Flat as always, while we sit out here and live it up.
