Fort Worth is one of the most affordable cities in Texas, making it a great place to rent if you're looking to live on a budget. In fact, housing costs are just about half as much as those in Dallas. The average cost of renting an apartment here is $1,200 per month for a two-bedroom apartment; this is significantly less than other cities like Austin ($1,720) and Houston ($1,340).
You’ll find good deals throughout Fort Worth—from popular neighborhoods like Uptown (with its lively bars and cool restaurants) to more affordable areas like Southside Village or Sundance Square (where you can walk from one end of town to another without having to cross any major thoroughfares).
The best way to find out which neighborhoods have apartments that fit your needs and your budget is by using our map tools! You can filter listings based on price point or location preference. This will help narrow down your search so that when you do start contacting landlords about specific units they'll already know what kind of place interests you so there aren't any surprises later down the road.
Arlington is an affordable, family-friendly community located just north of the city. With a population of more than 200,000 people and an average home price of $250,000, Arlington offers plenty of opportunities for renters with children. There are several elementary schools within walking distance from the apartment complexes in this area.
The average rent for an apartment in Arlington is around $1,000 per month—which is slightly higher than average but still quite reasonable considering that Arlington has some of the most impressive public schools in Virginia. The school system also offers specialized programs designed to help students with special needs or learning disabilities succeed academically at all grade levels (elementary through high school).
Arlington residents enjoy easy access to both DC and Alexandria via Metro rail or carpool options such as Uber Pool or Lyft Line; thus it's easy for them to commute into either city depending on their daily needs.
