$500 per month or below will be difficult to find in a decent area, though not impossible. Just very difficult.

I just posted I actually found a house that is under 50k that is a foreclosure. It is in a better neighbor hood with all crime stats at 0 or under 20 for the past 9 years. I've inquired about it. I know everyone thinks renting is a great option but it is not for us.

the other post which no one has read or commented on yet says....

32226 it is close to Dunn Creek Rd, the city stats are really good better then the others I've been looking at. So does anyone have any input to this zip?

Dunn Creek Rd is basically up in the middle of nowhere. It was very rural, but some suburban subdivisions were being built before the real estate crash. Back in the 80s and before, there were paper mills that stunk up the area, which is why it's still so undeveloped.

If you don't mind driving a bit, and you're not bothered by the relatively rural feel and lack of retail, I'd seriously consider it as an option. It's probably one of your lowest crime options for your budget.

Also, I'd give the area a 50/50 chance for developing into a rather nice middle-class suburban area within the next decade or so, once the market picks back up.

Thanks we contacted the real estate agent and hope to hear from them. We don't mind the rural feel or lack of shopping. Besides in this economy who can afford to shop anyways...lol. Thanks for your help.
