Hi! I'm glad you're coming to Baltimore. We look forward to welcoming you!
I work a lot in the area of Dundalk, which is in Southeast Baltimore (Baltimore County). It's about 20 minutes from your husband's work address. I did some research, and I found five homes that may be of interest to you. They are all under your $1,300 budget. Here is a link: http://goo.gl/TeHUI.
We are not allowed to say if a neighborhood is safe or not, or whether schools are good or not. However, each of these homes is relatively close to a school. The one on Mid Haven is close to Bear Creek Elementary School, and it is also close to a community park and water.
I hope that this is helpful to you. If you would like to see any of these homes, please let me know, and I will be happy to arrange that.
Thanks, and have a great day!!!
