Is it too early to look for a house near BNSF Railway since I plan to move in late May?

Asked by renee_john, Fort Worth, TX Mon Feb 11, 2013

I am a young professional with two cats looking for a house, town home, or condo near BNSF Railway (within 20 minutes commute) that is $1000 rent, or $1200 all inclusive of utilities. Is it too early to look for a house, or should I wait closer to my move-in date in late May?

There's not a lot of rentals in this price range, but there are some.

Unfortunately the way the market is once you find the house, you have to move in within about 30days or at least start paying rent. If you want to move in late May, best to look late April.

Lease homes tend to go pretty quickly - particularly at this price point and location. I live near BNSF HDQ and between 3 rail yards. There are several nice communities available. I recommend you wait until you are ready to "sign on the dotted line". You will need to pay an application fee (usually $50.00 per adult). Upon leasing we must narrow our search to homes that allow pets. There will be a pet deposit fee. Typically that fee is used to clean upon move out - so I caution you deposit=$$$ gone. That fee depends on the owner - usually $100 or so for 2 kitties. Most leases in the Fort Worth area are NOT inclusive of utilities. (Just an FYI) Feel free to reach out to me in April and let's see what is available at that point in time.

Best Regards,
