We are planning to relocate to the area and we think we have decided on hurst. Does anyone have any information on some good apartments or property managers? We are used to the $500 price range but I know that it will go up a
little. Thanks, Jenna

think you might like apts in Bedford which is extremely close to Hurst better--not sure how much the rents are compared to Hurst but the apts that I see when I drive in the area don't look very well kept ...the ones across from TCC on Harwood look to be the best and I really don't know anything about their quality or safety--just the exterior image...

Try Bedford apts located
around Bedford-Euless and Forest Ridge,
Forest Ridge n of Harwood,
Bedford on Harwood between Central and Martin and then S of Harwood on Martin---
Bedford apts that are east of 121 on Bedford Euless Rd...

N Euless apts would be off Cheek-Sparger around 360

There are some really nice apartments on Harwood (in Hurst) about 1/8th of a mile East of Hurstview Drive. The apartments/town homes are on the North Side of Harwood. I pass by there all the time but the name escapes me. They appear to be very well kept and a wide variety of floorplans. I remember because we actually looked at these apartments years ago, before we moved into our home.

Generally, there just aren't a whole lot of apartments in Hurst on the North side of town. Bedford does have more apartments, and many of them are very nice. Before we bought our home in Hurst we lived in apartments in Bedford because there was a better selection (of apts).

Synopsis--thought those you mentioned east of Hurstview were buy--not rent--townhomes--you are right--those are probably the nicest ones in Hurst--but probably more than 500 a mo too

Thank you for the information, this is alot harder than I had anticipated. I am living in Arkansas and around here a city is a city. The more I look online the more confused I get. So many suburbs run together and one town is part of another. The worst part is that I have to find a suitable school district in my price range that is close to DFW airport and my ex-husband and his wife will want to live in also. They make more money than us and we will have to find new jobs. It's hard enough to move one family, but moving two at the same time, when you both are looking in different price ranges, in an area you are completely unfamiliar with is very daunting.

I totally understand the dilemma Jsc. The DFW metroplex is a VERY large area. You have to understand that at one time all of these cities were entities all by themselves. Over time, with the phenomenal growth of the area everything has just grown together. There are over 6 million people living in the DFW metropolitan area. That's almost twice as many people in my entire home state of Oklahoma!

You are looking in the right area, in my opinion. The HEB school district is pretty good and it's not that pricey around here, compared to other areas of the metroplex. It's also close enough to DFW Airport without being too close. This is just my opinion, and I may catch some flack for it, but I wouldn't live any closer (on this side of the airport anyway) than Bedford. Euless is just a bit too close to the airport for my taste and you'd probably be subjected to airline noise. However, I did live in Euless at one time as well and I don't recall the airplane noise being too loud. At least not enough to bother me all of the time.

I have one suggestion for apartments that might just foot the bill and still be in your price range. Before we moved to Hurst we lived in a complex called Pecan Creek in Bedford. Mind you, these apartments were built in the 1970s and they aren't super nice, but they are in a safe neighborhood and the prices are pretty decent. When we lived there about 8 years ago we paid 600 a month for a two-bedroom 1100 square foot apartment. Of course the prices will be higher now but I think these apartments will be closer to your price range. Like I said, they are older but the 3 years we lived there we never had a break-in or heard of any in our area.

And Loves2read, you're right; those apartments in Hurst that I was speaking of would be far more than 500 a month and some, if not all, are condos for sale. Good luck to you Jsc!

I have never heard of Wakersfield. Can you check your records... is it Weatherford that you mean?
