School me on parts of town worth moving to, and parts to stay away from. My son wants to rent a nice house up there, but doesn't know anything about the town. His girlfriend will be in the UNT health science center area and he needs access to DFW airport. Any guidance is appreciated.

Good luck. The influx of money is really affecting the rental market as far as availability. 1 year leases are being paid in cash upfront just so they can stay there for a few months while they buy/build a home. Just went through this with a couple of clients, they both ended up in hotels while they look for homes.

West and far north are all that's left that's not the hood. Far north is a traffic nightmare. Parts of West are bad too such as Como and Camp Bowie West north to include White Settlement, meth country there. Benbrook, southwest of Loop 820, is where I lived and I would have no problem recommending the area to anyone.

West Fort Worth is great. Rentals there will be pricey. Arlington Heights is a good neighborhood. Some affordable duplexes will pop up there from time to time. Ridglea Hills is very nice, but good luck finding a rental. Agree with ntxtrapper, stay away from the areas he mentioned. I lived in Benbrook for 5 years, it's nice.

Must be martini time for Bill.

Benbrook area is where to go. Ft. Worth has changed over the years like any big city.

Grab the old ankles, renting is going to be pricey.

Is she going for her DO, or something else?

Yeah, my son is used to paying out the nose for rent.

I'm not sure what she's doing up there. Med school? She graduated from UT a couple years ago has been going to UNT for the last year, and now is going to the UNT Health Science Center.

Appreciate all the advice, I'll pass it on to him.

Check out the river district. Very close access to downtown, not far from 7th, and some very nice upscale apartments.

I would have suggested the River District but he said they want a rent house. The only homes there are going for 800K to 1.5Mil. I doubt any of them are for rent.

He might go with an apartment. He just wanted to have a yard for his dog.

Is the river district a hip and happening place?

Absolutely. They have a Whole Foods and a plethora of hipster restaurants. The apartments are along the Trinity River trails so dog walking isn't an issue.

North Fort Worth is still nice if you can stomach the traffic. Airport access is quick and easy anytime of day if you pay to take the toll lanes.

Arlington heights is a nice older neighborhood. Close access to everything you could want.
