Good luck!

Steiner Ranch and all the areas around it are way above the price range you mentioned. $1400 barely gets you any home in the greater Austin area, maybe a 2/2 condo. If you can either change location or pay higher rent, I would be happy to help.

Russell Spillers answered:
Mike, That is a tough situation. You should consider purchasing a home with owner financing. The qualifications for owner finance properties are a lot more relaxed when compared to renting. If you don't have a big bag of cash sitting around for the down payment your options are going to be very limited, BUT many management companies will consider you more seriously if you mention you can pay several months of rent up front. Best of luck. ... more

I'm not sure how much these usually cost. An alarm system will definitely up the price a bit. You will want to ask someone about this and see what the exact price will be so that you can plan accordingly. ... more

Understand that ANYONE can post a rental. Trulia is only displaying 3rd party info, and there are ways for scammers to post fake listings on other websites which then get mirrored on trulia, zillow, realtor, etx.. When a deal seems too good to be true, it is.. ALWAYS verify EVERYTHING you see online with a local Realtor. Realtors adhere to a strict code of ethics which offers you consumer protection and piece of mind. Flag the listings and email Browse the agent directory to find a well reviewed local Realtor. ... more
