Wayne will be a little tricky to find a 3 bed 2 bath rental for under $1500. The majority of Wayne, PA falls within the Radnor School District which is excellent and very sought after. With such a great school district and high property values, the rental prices are generally higher as well.
I would suggest broadening your search to include Upper Merion Township, Newtorn Square, and Marple Township. You may have better luck finding reasonable options. They are all easily accessible to Route 202 and I-476.
My initial search of Wayne only came up with a few listings for rent that meet your criteria and they are closer to $2000/month.... more
You might try Home Properties in Devon. Walkable to the Strafford train station and within your price point..
I imagine there are some older rental apartments in the area but unfortunately I am not familiar with them. I suggest you try Craig's List.
Good luck with your search

Jen, I have lived in Radnor Township for over 20 years and my kids went through Radnor schools... so I am very familiar with the boundaries for Wayne Elementary School. Unfortunately, there are no 3 bedroom listings in the MLS right now in that area for under $2,000/mo. There are two listings which only have 2 bedrooms for $1,400/mo. and $1,750/mo... or, there are 2 townhouses available which are asking $2,400/mo. and $2,500/mo. Both townhomes are vacant and easy to show. Let me know if you'd like to tour them. Not sure when you want to move, but there should be more inventory hitting the market in the spring, as the peak "turnover" for rentals coincides with the end of the school year. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or cell (610) 329-7399/office (610) 688-4310. Good luck!... more
It's important that you hire a competent Realtor and ensure that your protected as much as possible. There are inherent risks in renting out your property. I always run a tenant check that includes criminal, credit and lease default histories. In addition I carefully review the lease options that are open to landlords that you may not be aware of.... more
