I know that I am asking for a lot right now, but I appreaciate any help I can get. My husband and I are going to be moving pretty soon to the area and have no clue where to say in the 450-580 price range in Dallas or Fort Worth that are good areas. Can anyone please help? We looked at casa villa in fort worth, but the prices are too good to be true. We also need good leads for an Administrative position and Retail Management around the 42500 plus range? We appreciate all help.

One thing that makes answering your question extremely difficult is that DFW cannot simply be explained in those terms. DFW is a huge area covering several counties with lots and lots of cities included. Many of those cities have the price range you list, but commute time can be overwhelming depending on where you work. So, it really is best to find a job first, then look for a house in an area that will work for the commute.

I will second that.

I learned this the hard way transferring here from florida. Believe me, not fun living in denton and commuting to the airport.

Thank you all for attempting to help us out. In the end of June I am losing my job and we are both trying to job search from Michigan which we find is somewhat difficult. We have never been to Texas and it looks like we might have to take a leave of absence from our current jobs to go down there and look at various areas.

Ain't this the truth... It's overwhelming to try and find a place to move to from out of state without a job.

I plan on getting a job first as well. I'm hoping I can find a place to rent month to month and work temp until I can figure it out better.

Visiting did help though.
