We really prefer to stay under 1,200 for a 2 bedroom apartment, but if its the right property in the right neighborhood, we would possibly consider something a little bit higher than that. Thanks for your input!

Why do you recommend Sunset Ridge? Is it considered to be in a safe neighborhood do you know?

Trying to work ourselves outta the student loan debt first before we even consider other debt.

Thanks for the thoughts but I really just want to learn more about the area and make sure we are choosing the right area and then the right apartment/home to rent. So if anyone has advice towards that end...your input is much appreciated.

There are many nice and safe areas in San Antonio, from South Town, to Alamo Heights, The Quarry, Stone Oak, North Central, La Cantera, etc.

I would suggest you narrow the general area first and then we can give you better recommendations on specific appartments.

Where will you be working? Do you prefer more urban or suburban?. What commute are you willing to do? Is school district important?

San Antonio is a pretty big, you know.

You can rent a house for that much, for sure. There are some nice apartments here but in any apartment complex you have to pray that a neighbor doesn't burn the place down, and you know for sure that your cars will get dinged up in the parking lot, unless your apartment has a garage and you park in it.
