Hello everyone,

I'm trying to find a 2-3 Bedroom house to rent after living in an apartment for awhile my wife and I decided we wanted some more space. We currently live in the Lakewood area but my wife works in Addison, I work in Downtown Dallas. We are trying to find a place that is in-between and have settled on the North Dallas area inside the I-635 Loop. I wanted to ask you where are some good areas around the University Park, Forest or Royal Lane area. Also what are the parts to avoid.. I know that most landlords don't advertise and just put signs out but were trying to narrow our search a little so we don't drive all around Dallas. Our budget would be around $1000-1400. Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated

You won't find a 2-3 bedroom in University Park for 1000-1400 a month and it will be difficult to find one in the other areas either, but doable.

You'll need to look west of Marsh , stay north of Walnut Hill and not too close to I-35 to find anything in that range. Definitely drive by during night & daytime before signing the lease as some of those areas are "block by block" ranking from the barrio to Koreatown to just plain inexpensive normal housing.

You also may have better luck in Farmer's Branch, just north of 635, west of Tollroad.

Absolutely nothing in your range between Hillcrest & Inwood from UP north to 635. Not if you are dead set on a house (vs apartment where you'll have more options).

Thanks for all the Info everybody. After taking a look at Relator.com We will definitely drive by the areas that you talked about and will more than likely expand our search to include apartment complexes. We looked at the Village Apt Upper East side and they wanted $1500 and up for Two bedroom apt. So were still looking at other apartment complexes up in the northern area does anyone have any good recommendations for apartments in that area?

The Village has multiple different apartments that range in cost. Did you look at any of the cheaper ones that would be within your budget? I find The Village to be one of the best bang for your buck places in the area along the lines of area and safety.

We looked at the North-bridge that is right next to the Upper East Side. We will probably look at other village apartments as well but we would prefer to stay in a Gated community like the north bridge and upper east side offerings.

Ok. That will be a little difficult to find in your price range and preferred area, but others man know of some. Also The Village in general is pretty safe as they employee a full time security staff that patrols 24/7. Don't let the guy on the horse scare you though!

There are some nice apartments immediately west and north of Medical City (Forrest & 75/ Hillcrest). There are also a lot of duplexes in the neighborhood behind Hillcrest High School (75/ Hillcrest/ Walnut Hill/ Royal) that are nice and well priced

I would caution you against any apartments off Harvest Hill between Preston / Tollroad/ 635
