Hello,

We are a young couple of professionals in our early twenties that will be relocating to Arlington in a few weeks to work. Can someone provide us information on what areas should we look at? We don't have any children and love to go out.

Thanks

What is your budget?
Buying or renting?

Honestly, young professionals in Tarrant County like to live in downtown Fort Worth. It would be an easy commute to Arlington on I-30.

We will rent. The budget would be $900, it might be a one bedroom apartment because is just the two of us and it would be a temporary assignment. My work is located at Grand Prairie. How far do you think that would be?

Thanks ChristieP!!!!

Grand Prairie is across the freeway from Arlington. As with everything else there are many choices
to live but at $900 could be a tight one. Rent alone could be $850-$900, then you need to consider utilities and bills. I would consider where your working and set yourself a 10 mile radius. There should be plenty of apartments within that price range with many restaurants/malls, and other types of entertainment to please your needs.

$900 monthly will not get you anything in downtown Fort Worth. Sorry...

Grand Prairie is probably your best option. As Rocky said, Grand Prairie and Arlington are next to each other.

The $900 are for apartment leasing only. Anyone here familiar with the Grand Prairie Area?

Squirl: It will be six months. Its very close to East Arlington. Any good places near that?

What part of the area would you like to inquire about.
I have friends and colleagues that live(d) in that area.


Arlington and surrounding areas have plenty of apartments to fit your range
South Irving/Grand Prairie (American Airlines/CenterPort 360 at Trinity) Plenty of Apartments.
North side of Arlington. There are plenty of apartments along N. Green Oaks before Collins behind the tom thumb Grocery and Kroger Grocery.
Apartments at Carrier Parkway and 360. (Arlington by Riverside Golf Course)
Apartments on Ave J and 360 (Arlington)
If South of I-30 There are plenty of apartments on the Grand Prairie side by Mayfield North of I-20. Note to lookupthe crimespotter before making any commitments.
There are plenty of apartments South of I-20 at Carrier Parkway
Additional apartments: Deep South Arlington, newer apartments along Arlington and Mansfield

Actually, from what I have seen in my research my top choices so far are a place called The Towns of Riverside which is near the golf course and a place called Seasons at Green Oaks which is really close to work and have good reviews. Last, there is a place called Cliffs in Jefferson Cliffs Way that someone recommended. Are you familiar with any of those?

I appreciate your help, this is the only resource I've got since I am not familiar with TX at all and will have little time to get familiar with the area before my start date. Thanks!

Good choice of locations. The only thing that I can think off hand is I have seen that Riverside Golf course area flood during our rainy season. Ensure with the management that your apartment complex
is accessible during inclement weather.
