Fort Worth is the fifth largest city in Texas. It was established in 1849 as an army outpost. The city is known for its historic architecture and traditional charm, and this can certainly be seen in many of the properties for rent. There are lots of apartments built in the 20’s ranging from one to three bedrooms. There are some homes from the 70’s as well, mostly around two or three bedrooms. If these do not suffice, there are a few very recent new two and three bedroom houses to appeal to those looking for a modern feel.
If you’re thinking of moving to Fort Worth, there are a lot of different neighborhoods and communities that you should check out. Oak Grove is just between Burleson and Rendon, and is mostly filled with medium to large sized houses, as well as some mobile homes. The high proportion of families with school-aged children and the neighborhood’s being rated in the top 11.3 percent of family-friendly neighborhoods across Texas makes it a great place for a family. Lytle can be found just south of Edgecliff Village and is bordered on the east by US 35W. The homes here are medium to smaller size, and there are also some apartments available. The high proportion of people of various ancestries mean this is one of the most culturally diverse neighborhoods in the city.
Fort Worth enjoys economic activity from a number of major companies, including the American Airlines Group, D.R. Horton, Pier 1 Imports, and RadioShack. The presence of the local joint reserve base gives another major boost to the area’s economy, while driving it in more of a military-activities direction. Fort Worth-Arlington was ranked in 2013 as Forbes’ fifteenth Best Place for Business and Careers. The biggest employer in the city is Lockheed Martin Aeronautics, whose headquarters are based in the local Air Force Plant 4. Another major employer is the Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth.
