I recently got a job working for Parkville High. As you can imagine I'm not exactly rolling in green. Im trying to find a safe apartment under $1000 within half an hour of The school. Ideally around $850 with a washer/dryer in unit - wishful thinking.

I did find something that seemed to meet my criteria. Ridge View Apartments on Maidencourt in Rosedale. Looked nice. The apartments are spacious. I get a teacher's discount. However, I went online and saw a lot of negative reviews warning against the property. Not sure what to believe.


Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm single, only need a small one bedroom pad. Just don't want to feel uncomfortable at night or witness people using/dealing outside. No rats would be a plus.

Are roommates out of the question? I'd say that's your most cost-effective option. If you are willing to live in the city there's tons of apartments to share with other young folks in Charles Village, which is really not that far from Parkville.

You also might try looking in Hamilton, Lauraville, and Parkville itself.

I really want to avoid roommates. I'm beyond sick of dealing with them.

Loch Raven Village Apartments used to be super cheap... a lot of college kids, but pretty affordable.

You may look into Key Landing in Dundalk. Its a gated community and has a private waterfront with a fishing dock. Washers and dryers are not in each apartment but you can get to them without going outdoors no matter where you live. The rent includes all utilities, as well as the swimming pool and gym on the neighborhood. The part of Dundalk outside the gates can be iffy sometimes, but thats by county standards, not Baltimore City standards. And again its a gated community so crime really isn't a concern.
