KY has some good rent rates but it’s probably not your best bet. Plenty of restaurants, bars, and family owned businesses.

Moving to Austin, Tx. Need advice, please!?

My boyfriend and I are moving to Austin TX in October from Northern California. We’ve both been there once and are mostly familiar with the downtown area. Can someone please give me some advice as far as where to live? I heard that South Austin is not the best area. We would potentially like to rent out a small (and affordable) house, or even a nice apartment to get started. Any suggestions other than seeking out Craiglist for that? We would need to have a place set up before we got there; what is the best way to do that? Also, any other information about the area would be very helpful. We have been reading about Austin but hearing it from a current local would be nice. Thank you!

Administrator answers:

South Austin is perfectly fine. In fact, many people work hard to live in South Austin so I am not sure where you heard that.

North of downtown is the campus area so you probably wouldnt want to live there. Hyde Park is just north of that and it is generally a nice area but more expensive than some. East Austin (East of I35) is generally the rougher part of town.

Locators and realtors are not going to sign you up to a place before you physically get here. I would really advise you against signing a lease before you see the place yourself. This site will help you find an apartment either way.

Put in what you are looking for in terms of rent and amenities and it will show you a map of all the options in town.

Is Accapulco Mexico safe for me? Read before making assumptions.?

Now Accapulco is not part of the drug war, the whole state of Guerrero has less murders than Dallas Texas. Its a favorite retirment and tourist spot. Im a young Latino American (Not mexican, central american spanish white) and I want to move to a more affordable place with a beach, so i WOULD NOT, i repeat WOULD NOT afford to live in a beachside tourist apartment, id live in the common workers area for low rent. Not the slums either, just the barrio. Im a good size male who comes from a rough neighborhood in California I can physically protect myself. I just want to avoid trouble but it seems like its a safe area in geneeal. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Also any othee cheap safe areas in mexico too. Thanks.

Please learn to spell Acapulto
Probably, but I did have a friend that lived there and he got involved with the drugs and his body was found in one location and his head in another place.
I personally lived in Acapulco for 12 continuous years, I had not problems. I did not want troubles and I did not go looking for trouble, either.
I originally went down and rented a hotel room (Coral) on La Quebrada. Liked what I saw. Went back home to Texas. Stayed away for a while then went back to Acapulco checked into a cheap hotel. Then I rented a apartment that was furnished. Stayed there for 3 months.
Went back home for a period of time. Called my landlord, he said I could have my old apartment back. Loaded everything up, moved using a Taxi to the Bus Station in Reynosa, checked 17 boxes after I paid customs on the items. Road down to Acapulco on an Executive Bus. Rented a Pickup truck taxi, went to my new/old apartment. Applied for my Permanent Resident. Stayed in Acapulco for about another 11 1/2 years.
Before I had my Permanent Residency I had a 180 day permit and had to leave the country and go back, you will have to do that too.
Be advised, I was and still retired. I have enough income to qualify for permanent residence. I do not know about your, but while you are living in Mexico you will not be able to work. You will also find out that Acapulco is probably the cheapest EXPAT location to live in Mexico.
There are literally many dozen locations that a person can live in Mexico that is very safe. But again you will not be able to work, and therefore you need a steady income that is not dependent on you living in only that place. There is no Welfare, medicaid, food stamps, etc in Mexico. You will be bearing all the expenses yourself.

Please pick a “Best Answer”, even if it is not mine.
That way we can tell if we really do help people.
My hometown is McAllen, Texas, about 5 miles north of Reynosa, Mexico. Lived for 12 continuous years in Acapulco, Guerrero, Mexico.
Retired U.S. Navy living in the Armed Forces Retirement Home, Gulfport, Mississippi (only reason I am not living in McAllen or Mexico.)
