Tips for renting in Stafford, TX

Stafford is a fantastic place to move to if you have work arranged in or near the city. Poor public transport options mean that it’s difficult to commute to downtown Houston, or other cities, unless you own a private vehicle.

But a private vehicle is not essential to living in Stafford, as you can find most of what you need within walking distance.

One of the most popular areas include the neighborhoods around ‘The Fountains’, on the west side of IS 69.

For a less urban area, the Promenade at Stafford Run is also close to several amenities, but also enjoys more green space, as well as access to Highway 90 Alternate.

There are more houses than apartment buildings in Stafford, though more complexes are under construction. This is good for families, but it may be difficult to find somewhere small enough if you’re a young professional.
