Hello everyone

Im currently in the process of relocating to take a position in Springfield. I have been up to the area several times to look at 1 bedroom apartments which left me a little sticker shocked on what I was getting for my money. On the advice of a friend I started to look at condos for rent. I saw several that I liked: Parc East, Montebello (near Huntington metro), and the Exhange at Van Dorn. Naturally each one has their Pros/Cons: Parc East- great location, great view, but older building, lfloorplan ayout was kinda weird, Montebello- a lot of amenities, close to metro, great unit, but I got a senior center vibe from from looking at the other residents who live there. (could be the time of the day I went) and the Exchange - overall best unit of the three, alot of amenities, but parking might be a problem and I know the least about this property (as it was night didn't get to fully walk the grounds). I have focused on the Alexandria area because I felt that it was a decent commute to work as well as being close enough to DC and other entertainment destinations. Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of these three places? Are they relatively safe areas? Any advice is welcomed!

Thank you
