Default Moving to Phoenix area

I have lived in phoinex area before but now that i am about to graduate I'm thinking of possibly going back. I want to move around the nice areas. I want to live close to the Arrowhead mall. It would be very helpful if i got some ideas on apartment livings. I don't want to live in a run down crappy apartment,and have crappy neighbors. I also don't want to have my car stolen. So maybe a gated community but affordable with student budget.

Safe, nice place to live on a student budget by yourself? In a separate apartment? Well, good luck with that.

Have you checked on craigslist? There are nice apartments that are in Moon Valley called Mirador. It isn't in Arrowhead area, but it is gated and right next to a golf course. They run a lot of specials.

You are going to need a roommate to get what you want in terms of location, amenities, safety and price.

It takes money to afford places that are not run down or crime ridden ... especially if you want to live in a gated area. It all comes down to the fact that you get what you pay for. A student budget won't buy a decent place in a gated area. It's amazing how so many people expect Neiman Marcus on a WalMart budget.
