Thanks in advance,

What are the chances of renting the house in San Antonio, up to $1000/month , yes I know it is not much,
with some yard and two dogs allowed (one really small , another larger, but not any aggressive type, very common dog) .

House, fine when modest and small, the main concern are; save area (older woman alone most of the time),
space out for the dogs, no noise , not very long distance(bus ?) to the area were can be found
low profile job (cook, waiter, cleaning, basic hospitality, any job another words for not professional person
who was unfortunately long time "between jobs")
and like above , about the house, the lowest possible price/security deposit .

If above does exist, what is the best way to look for place like this ,what area , and if someone knows please,
what is job situation for "any job" , some experience in restaurant job but not recent .

If the reality is brutal, please go ahead any way

It's doable in many parts of the inner city.

Most houses will require a one-month security deposit. So if the rent is $1000, then you'll need a $1000 as a deposit.

I think finding a house is doable. Would you consider living on the Southside? The more north, central and west you go, the higher the rent. Some might question the safety issue, but there are pockets of the southside that are quite safe. If I think of any areas in specific, I'll post them. Best of luck on the move!

I managed to find a townhome with a backyard on the NE side when my budget was $650, but it wasn't easy. If I had a $1,000 budget, my search would have been much easier. As Austindoxie1972 said, you'll most likely have to come up with a $1,000 deposit and a pet deposit for each pet. I think I had to pay a $300 deposit for mine. It gets expensive.

Check out mobile home communities here too, usually on the outer edges of town but still bus accessible. $1000 or under shouldn't be a problem especially since it is just one person so I am assuming you won't need anything particularly big (one to two bedrooms?).

Some owners/landlords will work with you a bit on deposits, letting you pay it in two payments or letting you pay the pet deposit(s) the same way, if you ask. It just depends on how flexible they are and how long their place has been vacant. I've learned that it never hurts to ask.
