I am moving from Mason, OHIO to Ford at Dearborn, MI. Mason, OH is very safe place and even don't need to lock the apartments.

I am looking for very safe apartments at Dearborn, MI as my wife will be at home while I am away for work. Staying at Dearborn will be easy for me to make a travel to Ford office. I am looking for a single bed room apartment and willing to spend in the range $800 to $900.

Please let me know your recommendations and suggestions.

Check on Craigslist. Dearborn's a relatively safe and neat city. You should have no problem finding an apartment (or even small house) to rent for that price range. There's a large section of Dearborn's housing stock that are smaller homes/bungalows (<1,000 sq ft) so you could get an entire house and not deal with noisy apartment complexes.

All three of those are fine. They will border on "suburban" in the sense that you'll be living near shopping malls as opposed to strictly residential areas (which could be good - walking distance to bars/restaturant or bad depending on traffic). The Springwells is probably the quietest location. The second one will be walking distance/adjacent to a park and shopping mall. The last one is near a ton of strip retaurants (e.g Olive Garden). I'd take the second one (Lincoln) just to be able to walk to the park/mall - but all three are in relative close proximity and should be fine. Your commute time will be sick (i.e. less than 10 minutes)

Thanks belleislerunner for your timely response and help. I will check Lincoln apartment first and then Springwells park. I checked the distance and everything is less than 10 mins.

Thanks

I would recommend the western part of Dearborn over the eastern part. The east part borders the city and can be a little rough. West Dearborn (generally west of Southfield Freeway) has some really nice areas.

I'd also recommend west Dearborn over Dearborn Heights. My grandparents lived in a house in Dearborn Heights for 50 years and moved out recently. That community is starting to have issues.

Thank you for your help. I tried to check and most of decent apartments are in East Dearborn. Do you know any of the good apartments in West Dearborn?

Thanks

Unfortunately I'm not too familiar with good complexes and what not in Dearborn. I will say that anywhere near downtown on Michigan Avenue between say Oakwood and Military is nice. That's a great little area with a lot of nice restaurants - not sure if there are apartments nearby, but I'd recommend that area.

My aunt and uncle also live just west of Telegraph and south of Cherry Hill and their neighborhood is great. It seems like a lot of houses (not apartments) in that area, but I'd recommend browsing around there.

I would certainly recommend West Dearborn. Avoid East Dearborn, anything remotely approaching Fairlane shopping Center or Mercury Drive, avoid anything off of Southfield headed East on Michigan Ave, avoid anything off of Southfield headed East on Ford Road. You want something in West Dearborn off of Southfield and to the Wast between Rotunda and Outer Drive or further West by Outer Dr. and Cherry Hill or Telegraph and Cherry Hill.
