I have accepted a new position in Fort Worth, and I will work downtown. Because I have such a short period of time before I start my new job (Nov. 24), it is (VERY) unlikely that my home in my current city will be sold. Because my husband and I do not like the idea of 2 mortgages, I am looking for a 1-bedroom apartment in a safe area where I can get a month-to-month lease. A furnished apartment is a plus, but not required. I don't want to spend a fortune on a luxury apartment, but I don't want to live in a run-down place, either. I would like to be close to downtown, but I don't mind a place north or south of the city, such as NRH or mid-cities.

Does anyone have any recommendations for me? I am flying down there next weekend, and would like to have a list of places to visit.

Thanks for your help!

Crestwood Place on White Settlement Rd. in the cultural district. They were built in the 40's, but they have great character (hardwood floors, gas appliances) and are very well kept - not run down at all! They look like a college campus with big shaded trees. I have lived there and highly recommend it. Ask for Connie - she's a wonderful manager, too.

Check the Amli at Fossil Lake located North on Beach and 820. (866) 481-2228

A more luxurious place downtown is The Depot on Elm Street 866-471-0406

Then south of downtown in a nice area is the Cameron Creek on Bryan Irvin Rd. 866-280-7994

The Marquis at Willow Lake have some furnished apartments. It's on Hulen Blvd. 866- 894-2439.

I think it is a good idea of you to rent for a while and explore the areas before you buy something.

Thanks for the recommendations!

My price range is flexible, but I would like to spend $850 per month or less. I am not looking for anything big or fancy, just a safe place to call home for a few months while I explore the city.

Here's an update on my apartment search:

I looked at AMLI at Fossil Lake, and it is a wonderful property. However, I decided to rent with Avington Park, which is directly across from AMLI at Fossil Lake. It is a brand-new community with lots of extras. If anyone needs any information about it, let me know.

Thanks for the update... I'll add the Avington to my recommendation in the future. I checked out their site and it looks pretty nice and very competitively priced.

There are some decent apartments in North Hurst near TCJC that are in a very safe area and 850 per month would get you quite a bit of space.

Do a search on the 76054 area code. The commute to downtown FW from there would be about 15 minutes during rush hour as it's only about 10-12 miles down 121.

Good luck!

that commute to North Beach on I35 is not going to be too much fun
