We plan to move to colorado denver area and know very little about the neighborhoods or the rental prices.
I am use to paying around $500.00 to $700 for rent.
Which most places i rent for these prices usually are 2 bedroom homes around 1000 square feet.
And are in mixed race neighborhoods and we are actually what you would prolly consider a redneck/indian mixed family that just likes simple things in life and can probably do just fine with our dollar tree and walmarts ,,,our favorites ,,o yeah we also love the thrift stores...

We are a family of 4.
Me 37, my wife 29, and my 5 and 3 year old daughters..
So any neighborhoods or website or videos or advice would be much appreciated .
Thankyou guys..

Default Do some more research

1. Spend a few hours on this site reading posts and you will learn a lot.

2. Padmapper.com for rentals.

3. Be prepared to increase your rental budget to $1500+

Why Denver? If it's for a job, where is work?

Your budget will not get you a 2br anywhere.

Won't be easy to find something in your price range, but they are out there. You might find something in the 80013 zip which is actually Aurora, but provides everything on your list: great thrift shops, Walmart, diverse neighborhoods, etc.

Yeah, it's horrible. If you found an apartment near that intersection, be prepared for drugs, prostitutes, and gun shots at night. If you found a house to rent a few blocks nort of there, probably ok for what you're looking for. But most of those apartments around that intersection are strictly immigrants from Africa and southern Asia. I don't think the immigrants are generally the ones causing all the problems, but you'll find a lot of people around there who don't speak much English. I believe there's a fair amount of gang activity in that area.

I drive through there regularly, and I make sure I lock my doors at that intersection.

Much better.
Nearby King Soopers and Target.
I live 2.4 miles to the north and would go there at night.
