As the second largest city in the Texas Metroplex area, Fort Worth is home to a solid, diverse economy, a thriving arts scene, and over 720,000 people. Though it generally takes a back seat to its larger neighbor Dallas, which is just over 30 miles away, Fort Worth is actually one of the fastest growing large cities in the nation. Established in 1849 as an Army post, Fort Worth has become one of America's most livable communities. Its low unemployment rate, great housing values, traditional Old West culture, and varied architecture are just some of the reasons why thousands of people choose to relocate to Fort Worth every year.

The advisability of moving to Fort Worth simply cannot be argued with when you take financial factors into account. The presence of large technology and transportation firms like Lockheed Martin make finding a job a snap, and with a cost of living significantly below average, you'll be able to afford more house than you would in most other similarly sized cities. The median house or condo value is only about $115,000, less than the Texas average, with the aggregate for all single family homes coming in at around $147,000. This places Fort Worth firmly in the "affordable" camp for most people.
Fort Worth's history manifests itself in the city's Old West architecture. Public buildings, especially in the downtown area, are perfect examples of historic architectural styles that were popular in the early 1900s like Art Deco and Beaux Arts. Others are modernist or post-modern, their high rise metal and glass facades creating an imposing skyline. Houses and other residential properties come in historic styles as well, but the most popular type of house tends to be ranch-style brick with some Spanish Colonial influences. Regardless of which home style you're looking for, be it a cheap apartment, modern condo, suburban family home, or urban town house, Fort Worth's housing market can oblige.
Fort Worth is an extremely large city, even by North American standards. Spanning nearly 300 square miles, there are dozens of distinct neighborhoods within the whole that function almost as separate communities. There are multicultural urban districts like Polytechnic Heights, ethnic enclaves like Stop Six, historic districts like the old Stockyards, lakeside towns like Lake Worth Village, and new master-planned communities like Heritage. More are continually cropping up as the city's borders expand further, with new homes being built at a rate of between 4,000 and 10,000 a year.
