My wife and I are looking to purchase a multi-family property in the Fort Worth area. We currently live south of Boston, MA in the suburbs. We're looking for a nice, Affordable, family neighborhood with a low crime rate . Can anyone tell me what areas I should be looking into?

Those can be really hard to find in Texas. They are often in the older parts of town and haven't been kept up well. We owned one in Dallas years ago. I'd recommend getting with a Realtor and having them do some searches for you!

there are some in Bedford along Harwood Rd and on Brown Trail across from Bell HS--many of them are rentals I think but some do come up for sale
there are also some on Cummings close to Spring Garden Elementary
the ones on Cummings are probably the nicest of the three --
the ones across from Bell are pretty plain and unattractive and Brown Trail is a busy street---

There are more duplexes out there than we locals think because we emphasize on single family homes more. There are right now duplexes and some of them new for sale in North Richland Hills, Burleson, Grapevine, Hurst, White Settlement, many within the city of Fort Worth and of course most of them in Arlington.

Very few are owner occupied and even fewer have the owners living on one side and renting the other side.
