Default May be moving to Dallas...Need some advice.

I might be taking a job in Addison Texas. Would need to plug in pretty quick so I'm looking for an inexpensive place to rent until I decide to put down roots.

Addison is kinda pricey so I looked around in Carrolton and Farmer's Branch. Any other suggestions on where I could look for a short term (3-6 months)?

How far of a drive are you willing to make? To get inexpensive you are probably going to have to go 45 min to an hour out to get out more rural.

I'm willing to drive up to an hour but would prefer 30-45min.

I wanted to make it out to Richardson and may look there in the next week or so.

I don't know what's inexpensive to you, but once you get north of US-380 things get a little more rural. Aubrey, Pilot Point, Celina, etc

Not to get too personal, but there’s a lot to consider, house/apartment, monthly rent amount, location, preferences, schools if u have kids, etc. i live off preston just north of addison in a 3/2 home in a quiet neighborhood for $1900...i feel that’s super reasonable considering the size and location. So definitely look around...and don’t be scared by the reputation of some areas...

Thanks for the tips thus far.

In answer to your question, here's the low down;

No kids...All grown up.
I'll be moving there by myself first to get going with the job.
Want to live simple (minimalist efficiency type) until I get settled.
Not opposed to a garage apartment.
Will be driving back to San Antonio on weekends so not too far north of Addison is better.

I think it is a requirement everyone who moves to Dallas to live in “The Village” - the Greenville Ave/Lovers Ln area. LOL

A bunch of apartments and close to the SMU campus. Probably about a 10 to 60 minute drive to Addison, depending upon how many wrecks are on 75.

I live in Rowlett which is east of Dallas and drive to Addison every day. Takes me about an hour taking the back roads or 35-45 if I take the tollway. Semi-inexpensive to rent a house or apartment in that area with tons of places to eat.

Depends on where in Addison. The city is full of restaurants and the rush hour is a nightmare. You can find some decent apartments NE of Addison in Plano I think either Plano PKWY or Renner roads and your drive will be about 25 to 30 minutes, but again that depends on where in Addison (you're probably going to be right off of the tollway) I would stay away from Farmer's Branch. Richardson is also a good place.
Good luck and let me know if you need anything else.

If it's less than a year, I'd just spend a little extra and live as close as possible. Via apartments.com, it seems like there are some options close or in Addison for about $1K. Most likely, you will end up spending more than that for the right apartment that suits you and for a short term.

Plenty of decent places in Apt finder in and around Addison. Consider the drive time if you live outside and the possible tolls (Dallas North Toll way, The Bush, etc....). Its hard to get around that part of town quickly without hitting a toll road.

Thanks again everyone for all the input. Do toll roads make THAT much of a difference? Do I need to set aside a decent chunk of change to account for them?

I'm in the process of negotiating my salary and want to know if I need to account for this.

I'm not a party guy and don't care for a night life. Just a local watering hole or crafty brewery near by is sufficient.

On another note, I don't speak Spanish but want to learn it.

I work in Addison. Keller Springs and Tollway. I live in Coppell. Takes me about 25 minutes during rush hour. I take Keller Springs/Whitlock/Sandy Lake all the way. One road, but lights slow you down. The rent in Carrollton shouldn't be that bad. Parts of Farmers Branch are decent as well. Those are your best bet if you don't want to live in Addison. Plano is another option. Otherwise, North Dallas, east of the Tollway, around Beltline. That area would be close and potentially more affordable. I haven't priced any apartments so don't know, but if it was me, those are the areas I would start looking.

Depends on your commute. If you have to drive the Bush every day then it could add up. Same with the Tollway. I don't drive those that often so tolls aren't a concern of mine. You'll know once you decide where to live.

If you are making a commute to work - tollways are a necessity around here. Very hard to avoid them. Especially if you have normal office / business hours.

Carrollton would be a good choice to check out - downtown area has some good small stuff that is right off 35 for an easy trip back to SA. Also easy to take Beltline into Addison.

The traffic on I-35 between Dallas and SA can be horrible, especially on the weekends. Be sure you use the toll road around Austin, which can get expensive. I-35 is always under construction. I avoid it every chance I get.

To save your sanity, I'd draw a 5 mile circle around your office and only look there. Traffic will be brutal all the time.

I'd choose my sanity and my free time over saving a few bucks living an hour away from the office.

I agree 100%. Time in traffic is better spent on me/family. I'm an early riser so eventually I plan on being at the office early and leaving early if necessary.

Yeah...that's all over unfortunately. Almost have to live on acreage to be more theft resistant IMHO. For now I'm just looking for a place to sleep during the week. Still have my house/stuff in SA for now until I decide to live in something more permanent.

So far it looks like Grapevine is as far west as I can get to stay under a 1hr commute to work.

Personally I would live as far out of the metroplex as you can get. With all the building and developments, being north of 380 doesn't mean you're out in the country anymore. You pretty much have to go up past pilot point or Gunter before you get out in the country. If you go east you have to get to Van Alstyne before you're out of the circus. Up near Whitewright where our place is probably too far, but it's definitely rural if that's what you're looking for.

Addison is a cool place, more upscale than a lot of areas of dallas. It has the highest density of restaurants per mile of road. Lots of festivals and one of the biggest 4th of July fireworks displays around. You do not want to have a significant commute in dallas traffic. Everyone and their dog has moved N up near the 380 corridor and places like Frisco, Prosper, Little Elm are now becoming confining and running out of room. Even with the toll roads you will be sitting in traffic at length at times especially at peak of rush hour. A lot of these guys telling you it's not bad are doing a small stretch to work and leaving early for work and getting back home before 5. It is an absolute nightmare and I would suggest you find something north of Addison along Preston rd. Avoid 75 and 380.

I drove from West Arlington to north and east Plano from 2013 until September 30th 2018. It was 46 to 50 miles from my house to my job sites. It took one hour in the morning and 2 plus hours in the evening. I was working 6-7 days a week building and remodeling schools. From June thru August it was definitely 7 days a week. I was spending too much of my life sitting in traffic, getting stuck behind accidents, and dealing with rude drivers.

On October 1st last year we moved to Southeast Iowa. It's the best thing I have ever done in my life. Now a traffic jam is getting around a tractor, combine, or an Amish buggy. I have not heard a siren or seen an emergency vehicle in a year. An upscale event for us is the county fair or an Amish auction.

Addison is great if you can find a place. Carrollton to the west is okay, highland village to the northwest is nice. East Richardson is okay. Wylie is far east and is decent.

Another vote for the Village and also Lake Highlands in east dallas. just built a new town center at lake highlands with apartments and dining and a stones throw to Alamo Drafthouse and Top Golf - i'll give you a tour if you like!

In answer to your question, here's the low down;

No kids...All grown up.
I'll be moving there by myself first to get going with the job.
Want to live simple (minimalist efficiency type) until I get settled.
Not opposed to a garage apartment.
Will be driving back to San Antonio on weekends so not too far north of Addison is better.
AirBNB a couple different places. Actually pretty inexpensive

Addison is kinda pricey so I looked around in Carrolton and Farmer's Branch. Any other suggestions on where I could look for a short term (3-6 months)?
you might want to look in the Las Colinas area around the Toyota Music Factory. Lots of new apartments there and within walking distance to several restaurants, bars, etc. It can be as happening or quiet as you make it...


I'm in Grapevine and commute to Downtown Dallas Mon - Thur. Give me a shout when you get up here and we can meet up. Can even give you the nickel tour if you'd like.
