Hi, I am looking to possibly relocate to the fort worth area. I would be working in the TCU (76109) area. Not looking for something exactly in that area necessarily just anything with reasonable rent and in a good part of town. Won't be able to pay too high of rent, but mostly just looking for the areas I should and shouldn't be looking at. Any info helps. Thanks.

That area is one of the better ones in Fort Worth, but it is also a bit more expensive. If you want an apartment complex, I'd look at the ones on the river (Bellaire, just west of Hulen), though they may be spendy. There are also some behind Trader Joes and Calloways. Duplex/ small house rentals are less abundant in FW than most cities of its size and are best found by driving/ walking around areas you're interested in or via real estate agents. You can try Craig's list, but folks in FW don't use it much in my experience.

If you give more info (what exactly your budget is, what type of amenities are important for you) you may get more informative advice.

Best of luck.

Be careful w/ budget rentals in 76109, 76110. Once you pass 8th Ave headed east, the students call it "Scary Berry" and not for nothing! You will also be competing with those students for inexpensive housing. Is there a local, perhaps a future coworker, you can talk about specific locations with? I bet you can find something within a reasonable distance that will work. As Camp said above- let us know budget and we can help.

Thanks for the responses so far. As far as budget my preferred ceiling would be $600 with an absolute high probably around $700. As far as amenities go I don't need much, a dishwasher and washer/dryer hookup would be nice tho. Thanks for the help.

I would be surprised if you could anything in that area on that budget, especially closer to TCU on the west side of 8th Ave. Not even something really undesirable.

I agree. You'll likely need to look elsewhere.

You could probably do that budget with a roommate. We looked briefly in that area. Stonegate at Marquis, Oak Hill, Coventry have apartments that if you split a two bedroom with a roommate I think you could stay within that budget.

What is the area just to the southeast of the I-30 and I-820 intersection like? I believe the zip code is 76116.

It's a huge mixed bag. There's definitely some really nice neighborhoods and a few that you should stay away from. It's probably one of the more socioeconomically diverse zip codes in the city.
