If you want to pm me the street or neighborhood info I can give a clear picture of each one of them. I'm very familiar w/ the entire area.

I personally do not prefer the area of Garland around Plano Rd & Walnut. If you want to be near a lot of different ethnic shops and restaurants then it would be fine. It is very close to LBJ - 635. Houses are much older and some areas are not kept up at all. More apartments in this area.

South Garland around Duck Creek. There are some GREAT areas and some that I would avoid.

Northeast Garland is the newer part of Garland and is seeing tremendous growth w/ Hwy 190 in this area and the new Firewheel Town Center Mall. In the more desireable areas around this part homes that are taken care of that go up for sale do sell very fast. Not many rent homes though.

The City of Garland has a code that requires all landlords to register their rental properties. From this point the city can make inspections of the properties, inside and out. They want to insure that rental properties do not turn into slums and are taken care of. I'm fine w/ this but there are some landlords that are not. They feel it is infringing upon their rights. Personally, if they are not the ones personally living there they do need someone to make sure that everything is up to code and in working order. Afterall it does protect their investment. Just my two cents.
