Hi everyone. I've been hunting for a place to live around the Lakewood area. I have heard that there are too many safe transitioning to unsafe areas within a two block radius. Can you provide me with some advice as to which part of Lakewood is safe? I don't really care for nightlife, just safety and quiet. I've been looking at the duplexes from PowerProperties (Reiger/N. Henderson, Reiger/N. Fitzhugh, annex/swiss, annex/bryan). Some units even list that landlord pays for utilities, and 1bd/1bth rent is around $675. Is that too good to be true?

Also, do you think it's better to live in a property where the property owner lives on site? Thanks a lot! I really appreciate your time and help.

I would say all are good except Annex/Bryan may have some issues. Bryan and Fitzhugh is turning into a chic little corner with the rebuilt Jimmy's Food Store Italian Market , Alessio's Restaurant moving over from Highland Park and Mai's Vietnamese...

The area you are talking about would probably be called Old East Dallas rather than Lakewood. The first two complexes are in the Munger Place Historic District Munger Place Historic District - Home (very active and well organized) and I think the Annex/Swiss complex is in the Mill Creek or Peak's Suburban Historic District.

A lot of the more rundown apartment complexes you will see have been bought by big developers such as Lincoln Properties, so change is on the way.
