City Guide
Fort Worth
Choosing your corral

Before you can start having a hog-killin’ good time though, you need a place you can call home. But where to start? In Fort Worth, you can find everything from gleaming condos to lovingly restored old homes. You can choose to live in buzzing downtown or to kick back in the leafy suburbs.

Luckily, Fort Worth is not New York so finding a place to live won’t be difficult. The rental market is flexible enough to have you viewing on Monday and moving in on Friday. When it comes to finding new digs, it’s never a bad idea to use a property locator to do the searching for you. Many of them will offer a rebate on their locator fee too, a figure that ranges from roughly $25-50. Don’t be afraid to ask.

Here’s a rough breakdown of the neighborhoods you might be looking at. We start with the most coveted neighborhoods (read: expensive) and gradually ease down to places that might be kinder to your pocketbook:

Sundance Square/Downtown - the beating heart of Fort Worth where theaters, galleries, clubs and coffee shops jostle against the 2,000+ rental apartments on offer.

Stockyards National Historic District - savor the Old West realism of saloons, rodeos, steakhouses and honky tonks. Twice a day, cowhands drive longhorn steer down Exchange Avenue. What better accompaniment to your morning cereal than the clip clop of cattle passing by?

Cultural District - this elite rental market boasts five world-class museums and is setting the trend when it comes to cool urban living. Camp Bowie - the 30 blocks of dining, shopping and galleries within this area offer a prestigious address for the urbane sophisticate.

West Fort Worth - the neighborhoods of Arlington Heights, Rivercrest and Westover Hills promise large, historic homes on leafy avenues. This is the favored address for families, young professionals and retirees.

Near Southside - also known as the medical or hospital district, this is considered one of the most promising neighborhoods in Fort Worth. It packs historic buildings where the cattle barons once lived, with urban lofts, town homes and rehabilitated single family homes. Add in plenty of cosmopolitan dining options and all y’all have a popular place to live.

Alliance Texas - this is a planned business and mixed-use community and is home to NASCAR and IndyCar events. A good place to live if you are interested in newer builds.

North Fort Worth - this region, and Fossil Creek in particular, is the fastest growing area of the city. Here you will find new neighborhoods with single family homes and apartment units.

Hulen/South and East - both middle-income areas with older homes and less expensive rentals.

Transport

Unless you are moving downtown, don’t throw away your car keys just yet. Fort Worth does have a bus and commuter light rail - known as the T - but they don’t serve the entire city. This means that most people drive to where they’re going which means that snarled-up traffic is a daily bind for downtown commuters.

Summertime and the living is queasy

No one comes to Texas without thinking about the weather. The winters are mild (especially if you are moving here from the frozen north) but, during the summer, be prepared for a humidity that makes even the most expensive ‘do puff out. The summers are hot and long and did we mention hot? By July the daily average is 97’F and a few days at 113’F have not been unknown. Rain, when it comes, often comes dramatically and this part of the world is no stranger to large, damaging hail.

Speaking of dramatic, did you know that Dallas-Fort Worth is on the southernmost tip of Tornado Alley? The faint-hearted might jump on their horse and skip town at the thought of this, but the locals say it keeps things interesting.

Oh, and Forth Worth is also in an earthquake zone. Just something to remember when scoping out a place to lay your chuck and wagon roll.

Seeing the worth in Fort Worth

So let’s wrap up. Fort Worth ranks among the top ten of America’s Most Livable Communities which means that it is a good place to live, work, visit, retire, go to university, raise a family, build a business or promote diversity. Hmmn, just about everything really.

Fort Worth’s 2011 cost of living index is 94.4 compared to a US average of 100. This doesn’t make it dramatically less expensive than say Snotsburg, Pennsylvania, but what can you expect from a frontier town turned rich by the large reserves of natural gas they found beneath their streets? This mineral wealth and the city’s proximity to Dallas, coupled with the different folk attracted by the universities, the tech and the service industries means that Fort Worth is a booming, diverse place to live.

This real Texas cow town also has more than a few things to keep you entertained. From opera to hoedowns, from world-class galleries to the world’s largest honky tonk, you need never be bored when you get here. Whether it’s Rothko or rodeos, this city has it all.

So saddle up, partner, and get moving to Fort Worth.

September 2017 Fort Worth Rent Report

Welcome to the September 2017 Fort Worth Rent Report. Fort Worth rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the Fort Worth rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

Fort Worth rents increased significantly over the past month

Fort Worth rents have increased 0.5% over the past month, and are up significantly by 5.6% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in Fort Worth stand at $910 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,140 for a two-bedroom. This is the eighth straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in December of last year. Fort Worth's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of 1.5%, as well as the national average of 3.0%.

Rents rising across the Dallas Metro

Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of Fort Worth, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the Dallas metro, all of them have seen prices rise. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

  • Arlington has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 9.0%. The median two-bedroom there costs $1,200, while one-bedrooms go for $960.
  • Over the past month, Garland has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 0.6%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $1,210, while one-bedrooms go for $970.

  • McKinney has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the Dallas metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,450; rents were up 4.7% over the past year but remained flat month-over-month.

Fort Worth rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

As rents have increased in Fort Worth, large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more modestly, or in some cases, even decline. Fort Worth is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

  • Rents also increased in other cities across the state, with Texas as a whole logging rent growth of 1.5% over the past year. For example, rents have grown by 2.8% in San Antonio and 2.0% in Austin.
  • Fort Worth's median two-bedroom rent of $1,140 is slightly below the national average of $1,160. Nationwide, rents have grown by 3.0% over the past year compared to the 5.6% increase in Fort Worth.
  • While Fort Worth's rents rose over the past year, some cities nationwide saw decreases, including Houston (-2.4%) and DC (-0.5%).
  • Renters will find more reasonable prices in Fort Worth than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $3,070, which is more than two-and-a-half times the price in Fort Worth.

Methodology - Recent Updates:

Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.

Methodology:

Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

Read more about our methodology here.

About Rent Reports:

Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.

Overview of Findings

Apartment List has released results for Fort Worth from the second annual Apartment List Renter Satisfaction Survey. The survey, which drew on responses from over 30,000 renters, provides insight into what states and cities must do to meet the needs of the 105 million American renters nationwide.

“Fort Worth renters expressed general satisfaction with the city overall,” says Andrew Woo, Director of Data Science at Apartment List. “Most categories received fairly average or slightly below average scores across the board.”

Key findings in Fort Worth include the following:

  • Fort Worth renters give their city a B+ overall for satisfaction.
  • The highest-rated categories for Fort Worth were affordability/cost of living and state and local taxes, both of which received an A-.
  • Renters seem to be generally satisfied with safety (B), local jobs and career opportunities (B-), and quality of local schools (B-).
  • The primary sources of dissatisfaction for renters here included commute times (C) and access to public transit (D).
  • Along with Austin (B+) and Houston (B-), Fort Worth’s renters are relatively well satisfied, especially compared to renters in other Texas cities like Dallas (C+).
  • The top rated cities nationwide for renter satisfaction included Arlington, VA; Lincoln, NE; Pasadena, CA; Boston, MA; and Madison, WI. The lowest rated cities included Newark, NJ; Bronx, NY; Bridgeport, CT; Baltimore, MD; and Salinas, CA.

Renters say:

  • “The weather is great, and the people are friendly.” —Abby M.
  • “My area is safe and close to big city advantages.” —Claudia L.
  • “I love living in a city because things are always happening. The biggest problem I have with where I live is the time it takes to commute - mainly if I have to take I-35 because there is always traffic. Quality of the local schools is only so-so, and right where I live I don't have any nearby walking trails that I can take my dog on. Other than those three things I love Fort Worth, the people are very friendly, the weather is mostly great, and you don't have to pay state taxes.” —Sara B.
  • “I hate the mass transit system. It is very poor. Almost impossible to get to places outside of the DFW area. For example, there is one train leaving FT Worth every 24 hours. I love how friendly people are and how there is so much to do here if you are active and young.” —Anon.
