Try to walk around the neighborhood you are considering, or do a virtual walk-around by investigating the neighborhood online. The more time you spend learning the neighborhood the more you will be able to decide if it is the right one for you. If possible, talk to people you meet and let them know you are looking for an apartment or house for rent in the neighborhood and see what suggestions they offer. Email or call local rental property agents you find online. They may not only offer you advice and help, but often have additional unadvertised listings for rent.
