I live in the Greater Seattle area and will be moving this summer. I am trying to cut expenses by moving to an inexpensive area but each time that I've found an inexpensive area and check Google Street View, it's a dirty, run down place.
Things I've tried:
- Roommates (5 of them for most of the last decade...)
- Look farther from the city (up to an hour commute)
How can I find an inexpensive place to live that is in a safe and clean area?
