This is a follow up to a previous question:
Going to school in Fairfax, VA (not GMU). Looking for an apartment where we won't get knifed or offered crack.
My wife and I are moving to the Fairfax area
for graduate school, but can't afford to check it out in person beforehand. It is just to costly to visit from Springfield, Missouri, so we are looking for help from the hive. We would like to be somewhere within an hour of Fairfax.
We've never rented before and don't want to get ripped off. We would like to be in the safest possible area for the money. We've checked out specific complexes online, but there can't seem to find an affordable place for newlyweds.
1. Less than $1,000/month.
2. No less than 450 square feet.
3. Near public transportation (bus or metro).
5. Laundry access.
A one bedroom would be great, but we don't mind a studio (as long as it has a decent kitchen).
If you know of any specific apartment buildings that fit the bill please let us know. Thanks for any advice you can offer.
P.S. WE WOULD LOVE YOU FOREVER IF YOU COULD HELP US!
