Getting around Arlington

Traveling around Arlington can be problematic if you don’t have your own method of transportation. There isn’t quality public transportation. And with the millions of people living in Arlington , that will leave you with the scenario of getting stuck in traffic. And if you are commuting during rush hour (which most people do), your left with the freeway system. Your options will be Interstate 20 and 30 which connect Dallas to Fort Worth and vice versa. Highway 360 will serve as the main artery that travels north and south. So if you don’t like traffic, you might want to consider moving elsewhere.

As with an apartment searching, be sure to visit the areas before you sign a lease. Understanding how long your commute will be, and the important destinations, will aid you in your search for the best apartments in Arlington TX.

What about jobs

The Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex is one of the fastest growing regions in the United States. And growth is usually a result of a strong job market and a high quality of life. Arlington is no exception, and examples of major companies in the area are Texas Health Resources and the University of Texas at Arlington

Parks and Recreation

Lake Arlington is going to offer you plenty of water activities, hiking and biking trails, and a getaway from the busy life that usually accompanies you in an urban destination such as this. Did you know that there is a paddling trail on the lake that encompasses over 10 miles? It’s a great form of exercise and beats working out in your apartment gym. There is plenty of wildlife and beauty right on the shores along Arlington Lake.

Downtown Arlington is a notable destination which offers plenty of restaurants and myriad attractions.  There are plenty of dining options like Flying Fish and Fuzzy’s Taco Shop. It’s the perfect neighborhood to grab a drink or check out what’s in the Gallery at UTA. Downtown has attracted many different businesses and its growth can be described as “expanding rapidly”.

How much to budget for Arlington rentals

You should know that price ranges for Arlington apartments are going to cover a very wide range. It can be hard to determine what you will need to budget for your own place. There are apartments that will start in the $500 range and increase from there. Some of the least expensive rentals are going to be near the University. Don’t expect to have much space or lavish amenities here. Expect only the basics.

It’s not uncommon to pay well over $1000. But you can also find great deals on 2 bedroom Arlington apartments that are in the low $900 range too. Different neighborhoods will determine the fair pricing. But one thing you can count on are high electricity prices. The summer months are a real scorcher. It’s not uncommon to have a stretch of days that are in the low 100 degree range. That’s why its important to ask the leasing agent about electricity bills. Newer construction might save you more money than you think.

You should know that there are many old apartments in Arlington TX that are run by sketchy management companies. Anytime you have rents in a very low range, you can expect slower repair times and more maintenance requests. But that is typical of older apartments that have begun to age. And if your a student, you probably won’t might so much as long as the lights turn on and the air-conditioning works. If your an Arlington student, you may just need apartments that allow you to lay your head down at night.

The best time to sign a lease is in the winter months. Most renters move in the summer and the apartment managers are aware of this. When Arlington apartments experience a decrease in “foot traffic” they will implement deals in order to secure more leases. In order to get approved quickly, you will want to have all the normal documentation for quick approval.

Pay-stubs, deposit, and a list of references are probably items you will need with you. And don’t worry, there are plenty of pet friendly apartments in Arlington to choose from. The only downside is the sometimes large non-refundable pet deposits. These can reach as much as $500 per pet. And it’s a good idea to find out what portion of this is non-refundable. Many apartments are also going to charge you additional pet rent as well. It’s just another miscellaneous charge apartments have put in place to drive up revenue.

A word about apartment specials. In short, there is always plenty of availability here, and specials will be extremely common. Some of the best specials can be found at apartments with the highest vacancy rates. You won’t have to look very far to find them
