My fiancee and I are recently engaged students from Dallas trying to get our first place together. She will be at UT while I attend Texas State. However, I'm having trouble finding a one bedroom lease within our budget (around $600-$800). We found a place we love in the 78741 area but am not sure about that zone. According to the APD website 78741 has some of the most crime in the city. I've lived in bad areas in the past here in Dallas and it's not something I want my fiancee to worry about. The problem is that I'm not too familiar with Austin and how it compares to the crime zones in Dallas. Are they as bad as in Dallas? I'm going down to Austin sometime this week but it's been hard coming up with a list of potential places to look at. Every place I've looked at so far on our budget is either in a crime zone or falling apart. If someone could steer me in the right direction as far as good areas I would appreciate it. Thank you!
