If you’re looking for apartments for rent South Sound Washington is a perfect choice, especially if you decide to explore the Bremerton area.

The city of Bremerton is currently experiencing rejuvenation; an entirely new downtown is being plotted and built. This renaissance is breathing new life into Bremerton, making the city healthier and safer.

Still, take your time and visit the city before you move there. Use your own common sense to find a neighborhood that feels safe. Here are a few tips to help you in your search:

  1. Find a neighborhood that fits your lifestyle. Is it the right distance from work? Can you go out and experience the nightlife? If you have children, are there good schools in the area? These questions should be your first priority.
  2. If you’ve settled on a couple of neighborhoods, call their local police stations. They should be able to tell you how safe the area is.
  3. Take a day to drive around your prospective neighborhood. Do you feel safe? If you do, then come back at night. Does it still feel safe covered after dark? Always trust your gut.
  4. Finally, be patient. If, by step three, you still don’t feel secure, start again. The safety of you and your family is worth the effort.
