Sounds like you might want to compare budgets with littlekw, that sounds like the nicest place I've heard of for $500/month. You may also want to get your resume in order and start putting in applications.

Personally, I like the transient nature of having military moving in and out of the town. I get to be around the military and thank our armed forces, but I also get the frequent moving that breaks up nepotism chains that would have blocked me out of meaningful employment. It is harder to develop a good ol boys club when people keep moving, and I like that.

One of the things I remember of a lot of Mesa and Delta County was the nepotism. My dad was a native to the region but my mom was a transplant from New Jersey. Dad never left, mom put up with never being accepted as a local for 30 years before she got out. She now lives in a town half the size but with enough tourist influence that she's a local after only ten years. A large part of that is that she's one of few that lives there year 'round. My point being that a transient nature isn't a bad thing for newcomers. Colorado Springs is an excellent example of that. My current job is primarily transplants that only arrived a few weeks before being hired.

I did luck out with my apartment. I think it's funny that people in town still look down on this neighborhood, but it's up and coming, thanks in large part to the development of the Ivywild school. I'm just waiting for rental prices to catch up to sale prices on homes here. In the mean time, it's wonderfully affordable place to live in the Springs and a great little community within the city.
