Look on Craigslist and find a roommate. Anything that cheap is going to be in a bad neighborhood...

You will be hard pressed to find something good feeding into Butler or Martin for that amount. I wish you luck because your budget is low especially when you factor in transportation costs since Arlington doesn't have public transit.

Hi Benhur101, I see this is several years old. How was your experience? My family and I are now in the exact same situation and I too have the same concerns about crime and schools. What are the Best schools and safest neighborhoods? Thanks so much!!

What is your budget and where will you work? Arlington is the 3rd largest city in DFW and traffic going through it during rush hour can be pretty awful.

I live in Arlington, and have for awhile. Stay west of Cooper, and in general you're okay. With few exceptions, west of Cooper even south of I-20, all the way north of I-30 are fine. I would even draw the line at Bowen. This includes Pantego, and Dalworthington Gardens, which as far as I'm concerned, is still Arlington.

We're in a neighborhood that feeds into Arlington High, and have heard nothing but good things from long time residents of this area of Arlington, for what that's worth.

Public transportation might a moot point with Lyft, Uber and Via.

Getting to Euless from Arlington depends on how you get there. As I've said elsewhere, it depends on your using a map (or Google maps) and pre-planning. If you rely on only the primary routes, and/or GPS, you'll have a rough time of it during peak hours, as 360 and 820 are a mess then. Heck, 820 can be a mess even during off hours.

Also, I'd think there would be some places in your price range in Irving as well.

I would say all of mr squirl's advice still stands. Finding a bargain is difficult. I would have to say we are at the "top" of the market, but couldn't make a prediction as to when it might "bust", so renting might be a good option for the time being. Renting gets you the ability to get the 'lay of the land' with out the commitment of buying.

We are in the sw Arlington area. I grew up here, moved away chasing dollars, but am back probably for a long time.

I lived in N. Arlington for 3 years and never felt unsafe there. I lived off N. Collins on Green Oaks Blvd. There are some decent apartments along there and it is close to UTA. I would recommend looking along there as it is only a few minutes drive to UTA, nice, quiet, and close to grocery shopping. The apartment complex I lived in was real nice. You can PM me for info.

Arlington is the largest suburb in the U.S. with no public transportation.

How much did your crystal ball cost you? jj

You can't really make these assertions without the benefit of hindsight. Who knows how much longer things will climb. We've seen momentary slowdowns before, and things picked right back up.
