My family and I are going to be moving into the Concord California area soon and will have to move into an apt. when we arrive. Is there anyone who knows the area, that could tell me the apts. or neiborhhood that might be safe or nice. And maybe the ones I should steer clear of. I'm asking for this help because I've seen families move into a wrong neiborhhood not knowing where to move to. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank again

I don't know the concord area well enough to advise you. I have, however, moved about 30 times in my life :
1. Ask every police officer you can find - THEY will tell you where NOT to be
2. Ask several real estate agents. They'll be happy to help you because they hope someday you'll buy a house from them. They are not allowed to "badmouth" neighborhoods, but if you tell them specifically what you are looking for (good schools, low crime rates, clean and well maintained exteriors) they will get the picture and suggest some nicer 'hoods.
Good Luck!

Well it depends how much you want to spend. Neighboring towns to the south and west are nicer and have better schools, but more expensive rents. I'm from Concord and I would firstly advise you to avoid the apts near Monument Blvd and Detroit Ave. Its not horrible there, but it can be loud, and has a large, poorer, immigrant population. For a nicer area I would recommend something further from the freeways and closer to Clayton town. Even then there are couple run down complexes here and there, but its quiet for the most part and Ive never had any major problems when I was living there. Not sure where you are coming from, but be prepared for the heat, its been over 100 the last couple days.

Stay away from the Detroit Avenue area of Concord. I would get an apartment in Pleasant Hill or Walnut Creek. Both cities are right next door and very nice.
