Just answered your last question. Good to see you here again. It is hard to say what neighborhoods to avoid. There are some great neighborhoods in Denver now that are somewhat in transition that are almost block by block as to the desirablity. It is hard to go wrong in the areas I mentioned before such as Park Hill, Stapleton, Lowry, City Park, etc. that are in your price range. Some of the choices will be older or newer, 2-story or ranch, size of lots and back yard availability for children and pets, etc.
Here are some websites that might help as far as schools and crime stats. Let me know If I can help you further. Best of success with your search.

It is really hard to tell you what areas to avoid without knowing what your concerns are. Feel free to contact me if you have questions or need a resource to ask questions. The rental market is very strong and renters are having difficulties finding a place to live.
