It's good enough but I'd look into a Canon Rebel instead, or an older D5x00 from Nikon.
The Rebels worth buying are the ones with their model name ending in i: T3i, T4i, T6i, T7i, T8i.
Canons can adapt old lenses so you get some extra versatility. Nikon D7x00 models get focusing motor in the body so you can have autofocus on old Nikon lenses and new ones that come only in D models such as the 50mm prime. Nikons can't take lenses for other most mounts without an optical adapter that degrades the quality (the adapter needs to compensate because the Nikon F mount has the longest flange distance).
Pentax is cool for adapting too, not as versatile as Canon but adds stabilization in the body so you can easily shoot with a '70s lens and still have that benefit.
Lenses matter more than the body and you're buying into a system when you get a DSLR. Buy Nikon if you want an awesome camera and don't mind being limited in lens choices. Buy Canon or Pentax if you want more variety.
If going Nikon the D7000 is an old but solid choice.
If I were you I think I'd get a Pentax K-70. Articulated screen, weather sealing, focus motor, stabilization, great adaptability second only to Canon.
I used to have a Nikon with articulated screen, I sold it to get a Canon for the lens adaptability and full frame sensor but I'm sure it's the thing I'll miss the most.
Get a used K-70 with low shutter count. I saw it's available for $468 in excellent plus condition on KEH, body only. You can probably get even better deals on eBay. The D3500 costs $465 with kit lens, but when you eventually sell it and you probably will you'll take a massive depreciation hit for paying full price for it.
Another similar option, but cheaper is the K-S2. You can get a mint one via eBay from Japan from under $300. It offers similar features to the K-70 but it's more entry level, not sure what the exact differences are because I'm no Pentax expert.
