Alex, my husband and I moved from Cali 8 years ago and there are plenty of homes out there for rent in that price range that is our price range as well, if you don't have serious credit problems or a criminal record there are a lot of places that will work with you.

Coming from California, it's way cheaper in houston but not that cheap. If your budget is firm, you may have to consider an apartment. I can help for free with whichever route you choose. Contact me at

Happy new year

They are out there, but way out in the suburbs and most likely at your top end of your price range. Most homes are 3 bedrooms.

Let us know if we can help you. We can get started BEFORE you get here by previewing on-line, getting your applications filled out, etc.

Lets talk soon.

Alex ...

I'm afraid that your price range is a bit on the low side. In this very active market, with inventory at or near an all-time low, you're looking at at least $1500 for a single-family home in a more desirable area, most likely more. You'll also be paying a pet deposit, which could be substantial, depending on the size of the animal. Hopefully, it's not a dog noted for aggressiveness, in which case you'd have an incredibly difficult time finding any sort of housing.

With families unable to find suitable homes to purchase, many are leasing, which has depleted the number of rental properties available. As a result, prices have risen considerably, and continue to inch upward.

I wish the news were better. Best of luck.
