I am in the process of getting a job in Denver and I and I have been looking at rentals but I don't know how good the ares are. I have looked in fort collins, louisville, Denver and even colorado springs, all I am looking for is a nice apartment in a low crime area. To give a price range if I receive this job I will be looking at about 35-37k a year(fresh out of college). Any help would be appreciative. Thanks

I love your enthusiasm, but I think you're jumping the gun a bit. First, where exactly is the job? If it's in Denver, then concentrate your search in Denver. In the middle of winter, you'll want to be within a relatively short commute of the office. If your new job is on the north side of Denver, then you want don't want to live in Colorado Springs, unless you'd enjoy a two hour commute each way. I doubt that's the case, since you'd probably like to have some free time, right? Rest assured that there are plenty of affordable apartments in safe areas all along the front range, and they'll still be here once your job is finalized. One step at a time.

Concentrate on the suburbs of denver... define "good area".. when i moved here I sent addresses of possible rentals to co-workers... some said... OH NO WAY... Finally one of them called and said "you do NOT want to live close to work"... commerce city/north aurora area.. HIGH crime rate..
You can find crime statistics online for city data... Look not only at crime rate but the school rating as well.. generally the better the school system, the better the area (IE... lower crime rate, more respectful people, better shopping, better rentals... and of course higher property values.)

South Aurora, Parker, (south) for fresh out of school... (Also.. what is your field?).. if you are more techie/programmer - then concentrate on Southern part of Denver as the Tech Center is FULL of positions. North.... go NORTH of Denver.. Brighton, Broomfield, Thornton, Westminster,
