Default Rentals in Farmington?

Hi, I am looking for rental places in Farmington. We lived in Farmington once before and paid $650 a month. We really want to pay around $400 if at all possible. Any suggestions?

Default Rentals in Farmington

I'm moving to Farmington in September. I haven't seen a lot of apartments or homes for rent on craigslist. Can you recommend a business or service, as For Rent Magazine or Apartment Finders is not available in Farmington. Can someone recommend a great apartment complex to live at? I'm looking for a 1-2 Bdrm depending on price. Looking at 500-700 range. Thank You.

Page 28 has a list of Apartment Complexes. Hope it helps.

Give it a minute...it takes a bit to download as there are a few pictures contained.

Default Rentals, Apartments in Farmington, NM

I have been offered a job in Shiprock and housing in Farmington. The company is letting me pick between Pionion Bluff or Executive Rentals. I was wondering if anyone has used those housing places?

I would also like to know what are the best things to do in Farmington? How is the crime? Also, as an area, how big of a deal is racism? I am African American. I don't know if I would stick out...anyways thanks for the help.

Hi,

I know from your other thread you seem really excited to have been offered this job, but don't get carried away. Farmington is very Republican, only 2% African American, and the crime is very high. Still sound attractive?

You should study the information on this city-data page to get a good picture of it:

Farmington, NM

Moving to such a place would require a complete lifestyle change and will be a culture shock. Is the salary attractive enough that you wouldn't mind doing without the kinds of entertainment, shopping, and people around that you're used to?

If you like the idea of an adventure that might not work out, something totally different, then maybe give it a try. If you want things to be similar to the way you live now then it will not work out. As for Shiprock, coming from Michigan you will think it is a very dry, dusty, poverty-stricken, wind-swept, god-forsaken place. Such places are all about what you make of them, you have to be able to make your own entertainment.

Personally I think I can entertain myself pretty well but given a choice I would not live in either place, and I'm a white, liberal male. I mean, unless your job is in education or health care, or some field that you really believe in and want to make a difference with that specific population, or if it could be a stepping-stone to something else, I would seriously reconsider.

Good luck!

P.S. This is a fairly typical view in Shiprock:

Aries is so right on target.

YOU REALLY NEED TO VISIT BEFORE YOU MOVE!

Yes, I'm shouting, if you haven't been to Northern New Mexico you truly can not imagine what you are in for. Only you can decide if it's a place you want to live, but moving sight unseen is simply not wise.
