You say you want out of apartments, but are you still wanting to rent a house or are you looking to buy a house?
If you are looking to rent, as long as your dogs are certified service dogs, then NOBODY can refuse them or discriminate against them even if it strictly says NO PETS. It is also illegal for them to charge you a pet deposit or, something that is common here, "pet rent".
If you are looking to BUY instead of rent, you have picked a perfect time to buy. Best of luck to you!
It's more than real estate. It's RAYL-Estate!
