When the cost of living and safety profile is so good, especially considering the location, it makes sense that you should want to look at apartment rentals here! You're in luck, too, because the available options are great. Whether you choose a reasonably priced home for rent in Richland Hills or want the convenience of an apartment complex, you're sure to find it here.
Landlords everywhere have a vision of the perfect tenant, and Richland Hills is no exception. Ideally, to get premier apartments, they want you to have a solid job history, proof of income that's about three times more than the rent, and some good rental references. But because Richland Hills isn't as flashy as some of the surrounding 'burbs, you may have a better shot finding a private landlord in an apartment complex who will work with you if your rental application is a little less than stellar. You may even be able to find less common rental situations, like a condo for rent. You can almost certainly get a pet-friendly apartment, too, though you will probably have to put down some extra deposits.
That first rule of real estate applies here: location, location, location. Most Richland Hills residents work in Fort Worth or in one of the Mid-Cities like Hurst, Euless or Bedford. In Richland Hills, you have easy access to major highways all around you. Going west on SH-121 makes a quick trip over to downtown Fort Worth. Going east on SH-121 takes you toward the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport and even onward to Dallas, about 28 miles away. Loop 820 is right here, too, and that takes you in a large circle around the perimeter of Fort Worth and its suburbs -- hence the name, Loop. Seriously, it's huge! Both 121 and 820 have undergone near-constant construction for the past several years, and that can really tie up traffic. But by the time it's done, you won't be able to beat the convenience.
