look on padmapper.com. but you may have to rent a trailer for that kind of rate. Try Seagoville, Mesquite, Duncanville, maybe Grand Prairie, Irving or Garland...but those in Gp and Irving at that rate might be in not such great areas

Thanks everyone I should've told you guys in that I use a wheelchair.I don't think living a trailer is a good option for me. I lived in a trailer 5 years and ago and it was a nightmare.It was so inaccessible.


Right now I live in a decent working class quiet working class are outside of tupelo ms. The rent is only 550 a month.

I'm just looking a cheap and quiet apt building a live in until I finish college.


Any more suggestions well be gladly appreciated.

$700 for a 3 bedroom. I think that equals the Hood.

Sorry, but there is a huge reality difference between rental rates in a large metro area such as Dallas over a small rural area such as Tupelo. That, coupled with one of the highest rental occupancy demands in the area in recent years, equals higher rental rates.

You'll be lucky to find a one-bedroom at that price, much less a three-bedroom. Something's going to have to give, amount of rent you pay or a smaller rental, or both. Are you qualified for Section 8?

Where would you be attending school? This really is important when considering any rental in DFW.

Tupelo is SIGNIFICANTLY less expensive than Dallas. Something is going to have to give for you to find housing in Dallas- size of apartment, budget ($1,000 is closer to realistic in as strong a rental market ), or location /safety (ex, willingness to live in known bad/ crime-ridden neighborhood).

Is there any way you can complete your college education in Tupelo? Why Dallas?

And how do you get around town? That will have a HUGE impact on where you live relative to your college. It can take well over an hour by car on the freeways to cross Dallas (and some are tollways), I would hate to think of the time needed for buses. There is the DART, which is surface rapid transit but it doesn't run everywhere.
