76140 falls in a broad area south of I20, primarily consisting of Fort Worth encompassing Forest Hills area and Everman which include many low to moderate priced homes, you'll find more foreclosures & rentals in these areas. This zip code also includes rural areas of homes on acreage and some fall within the Mansfiled ISD area, most of these are nice, larger & higher priced properties. Because this area is south of I20, that's where youll find newer developements too - many starter home neighborhoods particularly in the Burleson or Crowley area. Some of these "newer" neighborhoods (now) have a high number of foreclosures. Price can determine much about a neighborhood's stablity & characteristics. No matter where you're looking to buy (or rent) you can go to that city's police department website and check out crime statistics - this is public information. Good luck with your search. If you have any questions, please feel free to call, text or email me anytime. Thank you - Paul Venable, REMAX Pinnacle Group, C#(817) 905-7514

Michael,

Best to talk directly to the police department regarding crime.
You can also check some online crime reports at FWPD.

I have some excellent ideas on rentals for you if you want to invest in Texas.

Hi Michael,

This is a great link to find out specific crimes in targeted areas: http://www.fortworthpd.com/crime-information/Default.aspx It actually breaks it down into different areas by addresses. That should help you to decide if the area experiences no crime, petty crime, or more serious types of crime.

Zip 76140 does have a good history of rentals. If you have a specific area in mind, I can narrow it down even further for you as far as rental rates, days on market, etc.. Just drop me a line at truvaluerealty@gmail.com or you can contact me also at this link: http://www.truvaluerealty.com/Contact_Me/page_163209.html Thanks so much!

Police website OR Google search for zip code OR media published articles for crime

Hi Michael,

Uncertain about the crime totals. You can however go to txds sex offender list and there are 70 cases in this zip code. If you would like to know more about specific properties and the closest cases you can contact me.
