Moving to Fort Worth, wondering about neighborhoods

Asked by Washingtongirl, Fort Worth, TX Sun Aug 1, 2010

I'm a 20 year old female from Washington state and will be moving to Fort Worth in the next year. I will probably be living alone or with one roommate, and looking to rent, but I don't want to end up in the ghetto or a bad area. Cost isn't really an issue.

Welcome to Fort Worth!!!

I moved to Fort Worth from the northwest (Oregon), and I do understand how challenging it can be to determine what part of town to settle in --- especially in a town that you really don't know! I have lived here now for more than 25 years, and am very familiar with the Greater Fort Worth area. I would be glad to assist you in determining what part of of this wonderful town would suit you best.

Working with a realtor will greatly benefit you in locating a rental home. I frequently work with clients who are transferring to the Fort Worth area from other parts of the country. I very familiar with the needs they encounter and challenges they face when they relocate, and I enjoy doing everything I can to assist them in their transition to Texas.

I understand you won't be moving until next year, but please feel free to contact me now with any specific questions you may have.

You can research crime and research local amenities around a location, but personal knowledge from a resident is best.
