You'll have to tell us your comfort level. Moderator cut: offensive The trade off is a triangulation between location, space, and safety.

I would stay on the NTFB side of I-35, personally.

I don't need to live in a gated community, but I'd really like to avoid having my car broken into or stolen, and I'd like to not have to worry about wherever I live being broken into or robbed.

I can deal with rats and roaches, provided it's not a full blown infestation. Not sure if any of that helps, but if you can be more specific about what you'd like to know, I'll be happy to answer.

I think you will be very challenged to find a house with a $750 rent.

Maybe there is another Food Banker looking for a room-mate. That would help both of you considerally.

I think Quail Crossing Apartments in Grand Prairie is worth checking out. Not in a bad area or location for your job and in your price range.

I read the criteria as $1500 a month, $750 each. OP?

Read that wrong. $750 a month, not each.

Yikes. I still think houses and duplex are your best bet. Are you willing to share space? You might be able to find a 1 bedroom in a duplex in the areas Lakewooder mentioned.

Some people in Winnetka Heights and Bishop Arts due group homes, you may be able to find a room to share if you don't mind that lifestyle.
