City Guide
North Richland Hills
Moving to North Richland Hills

North Richland Hills has a great location, with easy access to either Fort Worth or Dallas but with a slower pace of life than either of these two large, bustling cities. If you've decided that North Richland Hills is the right place for you -- and why wouldn't you? -- it shouldn't be too hard to find apartments for rent.

The apartment complexes in North Richland Hills are spread out pretty evenly throughout the city, with clusters of a few complexes here and there. It's not like in some cities where all the apartments in the whole city are segregated to the same exact neighborhood (often intentionally so because of zoning laws.) Some apartment communities are located along Loop 820, which gives you easy access for commuting into Dallas or Fort Worth for work or for play. There are some very new, very fancy apartments and townhomes, particularly along Mid Cities Blvd. Older complexes are located in the Holiday Lane area, and these offer the biggest bang for your buck because a willingness to live in a little bit older of a property can save you hundreds of dollars every month!

If you are interested in house rentals or renting a duplex, NRH has lots of affordable options for that, too. Nearly half of the homes here were built in the 1970's and 1980's during a previous real estate boom, including many which are now rental properties today. The advantage of the older houses and condos for rent in NRH is that they're a perfect "starter home" in terms of size - the average such home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a two-car garage. Did we already mention that they're really affordable?

When you look for rental property in North Richland Hills, you should be prepared to put on your "good tenant" face. Bring your proof of employment, a complete credit report and those all-important security deposits. If you're moving with a pet, you should be prepared to pay extra deposits for a pet-friendly apartment.

But what if your credit has taken some hits, or you haven't been at your job very long? Well, luckily the fact that the housing stock is older might be on your side here, too. You might have an easier time finding a second chance apartment or an understanding landlord, especially if you're willing to put down some extra deposits or sign a longer lease.

North Richland Hills Neighborhoods

NRH doesn't have distinct neighborhoods per se, but it is roughly divided in half in terms of the types of homes you'll find in each area.

Northern Side: The northern end of North Richland Hills runs right along the border of ultra-popular suburbs like Keller and Colleyville. When you want to find the newest buildings, country chic shopping and ladies who lunch, Keller and Colleyville are where it's at. Just follow Davis Blvd and Highway 26 straight north and you will run straight into these newer suburbs. This half of NRH definitely tries to "keep up with the Jones'" with its trendy northern neighbors.

Southern Side: While not isolated farm land, the south half of NRH definitely has a more rural, relaxed feel to it. Loop 820 and Hwy 121 make driving to pretty much anywhere a snap when you're ready for a little more action. As you travel south, you'll run into more and more parks, lakes and rivers guaranteed to keep your free time as active or relaxed as you desire.

The Good Life in North Richland Hills

Life seems almost too easy in North Richland Hills. You have access to one of the best job markets in the country for several decades running. Not only are there are a lot more jobs here, housing is comparatively affordable. On top of the great cost-of-living factors, you can also enjoy great weather here. The Dallas/Fort Worth area does have some colder days each winter and usually gets only one or two ice storms, but the ice storms are rare and usually melt within a day or two. Summers are really hot, with many weeks in a row of temperatures above a scorching 90 degrees. Most people think the best time of year is in March and April, when other parts of the country are still getting occasional snow but the temperature here range between 60 to 70 degrees and the bluebonnets are starting to bloom.

How about those brutal summers, though? North Richland Hills has your back. The NRH2O water park in the southern part of town is a popular place to beat the heat. The popular water park attracts overheated people from all over Tarrant County. From tame wave parks and kiddie pools to wet and wild uphill water rollercoasters, there's bound to be some type of ride here that meets your idea of fun and refreshment.

There are all kinds of parks in NRH that don't require you to get drenched, though. From Legacy Park to the Tipps Canine Hollow Dog Park, you can soak up some sunshine and fresh air. Get some exercise by hitting the trails, since North Richland Hills provides all kinds of walking paths, including the Cotton Belt Trail and the John Barfield Trail.

Like to go out to eat? So does pretty much everyone else around here! In addition to the usual chain restaurants, North Richland Hills has more mom-and-pop independent restaurants than you can imagine, too. A lot of the independent restaurants here have a really unique or quirky character, like Billadelphia's, a barn-shaped joint that proudly serves up Philly-style cheesesteaks, and From Across the Pond, a restaurant that serves British fare. Niki's Italian Bistro has standout dishes like lobster ravioli, and Back Forty Smokehouse dishes up Texas-style brisket.

When it's time to de-stress and unwind, North Richland Hills has you covered. Texas Salon Suites is legendary for their great salon services, and Skylight Massage and Skincare will relax you with a holistic Eastern approach to wellness. Jerry's Paw Spaw will even make sure your pooch is pampered, too! Golfers will love the Iron Horse golf club, just south of Loop 820. From the practice range to the well-manicured 18 holes, this course ranks head and shoulders above the rest, especially considering it's a municipal course.

North Richland Hills has a great quality of life. You have easy access to all the shopping and shows in Fort Worth and Dallas when you want a taste of the fancy big-city life, but your day-to-day life has a calmer pace. With clean streets, a low crime rate, great weather and friendly neighbors, what more could you want?

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.


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.
