Default Want to move to Gladewater Tx

I want to move to Gladewater Tx this summer. I have 2 kids. Hoping to get a job there. Will I be able to support them with a 1,800 a month income? I cant drive so i need a place in town so we can walk places..I dont know the rent prices and i would like a house over an apt. I have no clue what the utilitys would cost on a monthly basis, Any ideas or tips would be helpfull.. Thanks

Not being able to drive will be your biggest problem.

It's going to be rough on $1,800 per month gross. I'd expect to pay at least $700 for a decent three-bedroom house not in the ghetto. I lived in Longview so I can only speak for utility prices there, but you'd probably pay about $50 for water and $200 to 400 for electricity during the summer.

As was said, not being able to drive will likely be a problem. You'll likely want to live close to US 80 since that's where most of the businesses are, but even bicycling will still be rough in the summer. Expect to arrive drenched in sweat.
