Default Renting in CT?

Is there anywhere in CT that is nice that has affordable renting (700-900 a month) and would be in a decent area. I don't want to move into a crime ridden area. I am looking for a mid-size city 80,000 plus and am having a hard time. It seems like if I want to move to CT I will need to pay around $1000 a month and the Crime is still bad. Is this true or am I reading into the City-Data stats wrong. I have found many contradictions and would like to hear first hand people opinions.

Thanks, Chad

Chad, any town that you are interested in? To rent for (700-900 a month) is a joke in Fairfield County area unless you are planning on rooming with others. To find rent for that amount is hard to find. I am sure there are some places such as New Milford as a friend of mine had a small apartment for that amount. If you are looking into renting in a city such as Danbury. I am sure the rent is higher. Your best bet to rent outside of a city area. Crime is everywhere but places like Bethel may not have much and it is right next to Danbury.

Chad, I did a little bit of research on rentals in the CT area and what I've found is that further west is REALLY expensive with the southeast being the more affordable area. The larger cities seem to have areas that have a problem with crime and you have to be really careful where you rent. IMO I think it can be almost impossible to find something that cheap, unless you find a roommate. What are you moving to CT for? Job? School? Like the above poster said, it really depends on WHERE you are looking to rent. Also, it definitely matters if you have pets.

What part of Connecticut are you looking in? If it is near New York, then you won't get much if anything for that amount of money. You might be able to get a small place in Bridgeport or New Haven for that amount. You could also get something modest in cities like Hartford, New Britain or Waterbury. there are no cities with 80,000 people in southeastern CT but New London and Norwich would have rentals in your price range.
