Hi. We are moving to DFW and are totally confused about where to live. My husband will most likely be working in Highland Park but could also be in Plano or Euless. I will be working in Arlington for 6 months and then in Coppell or Irving after the company moves. We want to rent a 3 to 4 bedroom house for under $1800 in a nice family neighborhood within a 30 to 45 minute commute for each of us. Any suggestions would be so appreciated!

You will more than likely find more info on the Dallas board. When we moved, I went to the dallas chamber of commerce site and you can pull down their relocation book on pdf. I wouldn't do the whole thing, but they have a neighborhood preview and they had some great statistics about each neighborhood. That helped me a bunch and hopefully it will help you!

when will you know for sure about your husband's job

Plano is really a long way to go when you consider the other areas jobs might be...

Coppell would be my first suggestion--but I don't know that you could find house for rent in your price range--Coppell ISD runs into Lewisville--and that might be more affordable
the schools in Coppell ISD are generally good and it is a small district--just 1 high school--it would be fairly easy commute into HP and with the Bush Turnpike not too far it would be easy to get into Plano--at least part of it...
check a map

the schools in Arlington are what I would rank as second tier--and the areas are really mixed--and getting from Arlington to Highland Park would not be that great a commute anyway

Euless is HEB ISD or Grapevine Colleyville (north Euless)
Trinity HS has some good programs but Euless middle gets +/- reviews from people with kids there
some of the elementaries are top rated--even in borderline residential areas...
Grapevine Colleyville ISD is very good district--think finding home in Grapevine would be difficult at that price--Colleyville not happening

there are some nice areas in Las Colinas--and that part of the Irving ISD is probably pretty good but not sure about the 1800

realtor.com has rentals but not that many
