We are going to be moving to the Dallas Fort Worth area this summer and will need to rent a home. Are there areas where we can rent a NICE 2 bedroom home for around $1000? When we look on line it seems most rentals are mobile homes. We are really hoping to rent a house that allows a medium size dog.

Where in DFW? It's a huge area.

You are probably going to have to be pretty far out in the suburbs to get that sort of rent, but you might find a condo or duplex in your price range a little closer in

2 bedroom homes are hard to find. 3/2 is pretty standard here.

And yes, where will you be commuting to for work? The DFW area is larger than the state of Connecticut!

Not a nice single family house for $1000 or less. No way. I own rental properties and can tell you it is not possible in the DFW area. Sorry.

May be South Dallas or Garland but not in any desireable area. If you only need 2 bed then just go with an apartment that allows medium sized dogs.

I just looked on Apartments for Rent - PadMapper Apartment Search for Oodle, PadLister, Airbnb, Kijiji, and other Apartments and in fact noticed a couple of single family houses in Garland for $1050 or less. So, you are correct!

I never would send a newcomer to South Dallas, but Garland is a possibility. Now, don't know about "nice"

Yes, most semi decent homes are now going for $1300-1400 a month minimum in "nice" areas.

There are parts of Garland that are pretty rough: south, near downtown. Be careful.

I mentioned that you'll not find anything in any desirable area. However, parts of North Garland, bordering NE Richardson are nice though out of OP's budget.
