I'd like to know which neighborhoods I should definitely avoid and which I should rather take a look at.
I'm French, currently I live and work in Luxembourg but I'll be moving overseas to attend UCCS's MBA program for a year starting next August until May/June 2011 or so.
So I'm looking for an apartment located not too far from the university, shops and transit service as I WON'T HAVE A CAR.
I just got the admission result a couple of weeks ago and it's starting in 2 months only so it's quite an emergency...
I have found several condos around Austin Bluffs Plaza and Palmer Park which looked nice enough and proposed 1 and 2-bedroom apartments that were really not expensive (even cheaper than a private room on the campus) but maybe too much cheap if I trust the many reviews found on the internet that list the cons. I don't know what to think about that and kind of feel lost.
I care more on security and living in a nice safe neighborhood than on having a pool, fitness center...
By the way, is living there easy without a car?
Any piece of advice is welcome! Thank you so much.
