There are many houses in the surrounding area you would find nice, even as far as Grand Prairie or further south of the area.
Please check out the rentals available using the link below. Click on Arlington or Grand Prairie (maybe Mansfield, too) and let me know if we can help you.
Welcome to Texas. Homes typically move pretty fast around here. Normally what I do is together with you make a list of the homes we want to see and then call the day before to make sure they are still available.
I will be happy to help you. Just let me know what day you will be here to look.
