Renter's guide to Fort Worth, TX

Usually lumped in with its Metroplex counterpart Dallas, Fort Worth is a medium-sized city located in North Texas. Known for its Stockyards area (where real-life cattle drives happen daily!), it offers a refreshing taste of Texas, while still boasting plenty of big-city amenities and fun.
Fort Worth is like any suburban city, only with hints of Texas country here and there. It boasts a bustling nightlife, top restaurants and shops, a great music scene and plenty of entertainment options for all ages. It’s also home to Billy Bob’s, the world’s largest honky tonk.
Though you might think this country-sounding town is a small one, it’s actually the fifth-biggest city in the Lone Star State. Compared to Dallas, Fort Worth is only a few hundred thousand residents smaller. Houston, which boasts more than 2.1 million residents, is much larger in comparison.
About 45 minutes from Dallas and 4 hours from Houston, it’s an easy drive to most major Texas cities from Fort Worth. Austin and San Antonio are also only a few hours’ jaunt away. There are two airports in the area – Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport and Dallas Love Field. DFW is in nearby Grapevine, about 30 minutes away, and is the main hub for air travel in the area. Love Field is smaller, serving airlines like Southwest.
Like most cities in Texas, Fort Worth experiences hot, long summers and very short winters. The average temperature in July (the hottest month of the year) is 96 degrees, while spring and fall hover in the 70s and 80s. Winters tend to average in the 40s and 50s, with sporadic ice and snowfall. It’s not uncommon for Fort Worth residents to have one or two “ice days” away from work, when the roads are too dangerous to drive on.

Tips for renting in Fort Worth, TX

Like other cities in Texas, Fort Worth tenants have the right to safe and hazard-free living, and landlords are responsible for making this happen. If landlords refuse to care for or properly maintain their properties according to city health and safety standards, tenants can take legal action. Landlords cannot retaliate (or evict) a tenant for taking legal action, either.

Before moving to Fort Worth, renters should familiarize themselves with the different areas of the city. Pricing and amenities vary greatly from area to area. Newer, more nightlife-filled neighborhoods (like West 7th, downtown or Magnolia for example), will be higher-priced than those closer to suburban neighborhoods and college campuses. The city offers something for every budget and preference.
