Trying to Find a SAFE Room or Apartment to Rent in Southwest Houston
I am a single mom, my daughter is Almost two. I am trying to find a relatively cheap (i make less than 30000 a year) place to Live in southwest Houston. All the apartments in my price range are NOT safe and I cant figure out how to find a room to rent in a safe way. I have checked Roomster, but it seems to be mostly for Students and Perverts. HELP Please! I cannot keep living in my parents Dining Room!

Try Camden's there is one off Westhiemer and cook they had soom good prices on effecentcy and one bedroom about 395 to 420 it might have changed. You can get almost the same deal at Camden at one at Westhiemer Dairyashford going south on Westhiemer at next light make right on left side. Also call apartment locater u don't have to pay them and tell them Camden and which one they can call and get a good deal. Have any questions email me S. at ____@____.com .

try the apartment complex in Pecan Grove (Richmond area) - it may be out of your way but my daughter and he 3 month old son live there - very clean, safe, and well priced... it is an older complex, though... I think it is called Old South or Grand South...

The term SW Houston covers a lot of territory. But to start I would contact an Apartment Finder company and tell them your income and situation - they can determine what you can "afford" and will look accordingly. In the meantime, check out what Assisted Living options are available such as housing for families on limited incomes - you might even find a modest house to rent with HUD funds to help out, that sort of thing.

Try renting from an individual. I used to rent a 1 bdrm condo for 550 a month from an individual. Look at Bimini Isle condos on Bissonnett and Fondren. They're across the street from Chase bank. See if there are any "for rent" signs up.
