$650 for a two bedroom might get you a place in the 'hood. I pay that much for a one bedroom in an area that's not great, but not bad.

I pay 950 for a middle range 2 bedroom. Plus tax. If you want to spend 650 you should be looking for something with rent closer to 600.

Agreed. $650'for a 2 BR will put you in a dump in a bad area.

As for welding, my old neighbor in Chandler worked as a welder for Boeing -- but specifically aluminum welding. There's quite a few fabrication shops, automotive shops, etc around the Valley. I'm sure welding positions aren't hard to come by.

$650 is definitely low for a 2 bed. You could find a 1 bed in a not-so-bad area though, if you keep your eyes open. Location REALLY depends on where you find a job, though. The Phoenix metro area is 14,566 square miles. That's over 50% bigger than Rhode Island, Delaware, and Connecticut COMBINED!

North Phoenix is better but there are bad pockets although if you keep to yourself no one will bother you most of the issues are theft like someone getting into your car if they see something in there they want. If you post some of the cross streets that the apartments are near I can tell you how good that area is I have been here 25 years.

Also you can look up crime on a map check out this site link from the city of Phoenix. https://www.phoenix.gov/police/neigh...ime-stats-maps
