Hello, I am sure this question has been asked many times but I can't seem to find a very helpful answer that is recent (within 2-3 years) since communities can change within that time. I am 25 yrs old and by myself. I just recently moved to this area (staying at extended stays until I can get a place) for a job near Dickerson pike. My main concerns are distance (within 25 mins) and safety (do not want anything stolen or car broken into). My price range for apartments has to be between 400-550 since I will not meet the income requirements of 3 times rent. Does anyone have any suggestions besides stay away from antioch, madison, downtown nashville and best places are hendersonville, hermitage, and gellatin? The ones that I can qualify for seem to be in the bad parts and the others are $10-20 more than my income of 3 times rent. I hope that this gets a response, I would appreciate any help. Thank you.

If that is your rental budget, you will have better luck getting a nice place if you have a roommate. Is there a way to find a roommate through your job?

The average rent in Nashville right now is $790, so you are trying to find a rent that is well below average. I'm afraid that you will get what you pay for.
