How Difficult Is It To Find A Home In Arlington?
When relocating to Arlington TX, you’ll have plenty of options when choosing a new home. Condo, townhome, and single-family are all available. I advise you to search for your new place in the neighborhood that best matches your lifestyle. Maybe you want to live close to Globe Life Park and AT&T Stadium. Or maybe you prefer a master-planned community with everything you need a short walk away. Perhaps you simply want a quiet, established subdivision to reside in.

Will I Be Able To Find A Job In Arlington?
Since Arlington is centrally located in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, it is common for Arlington residents to work outside of the city. If you desire to live and work in Arlington, it is a viable option. A number of small, medium and large sized employers are based in Arlington.
Additionally, the city is focusing on attracting companies and new jobs to Arlington. For example, GM recently announced they expect over 850 jobs will be created with the new supplier park residing in Arlington.

How Can I Get Around Arlington?
It is almost a necessity to own a car to get around Arlington. Due to the size and spread of Arlington, it is neither very walkable or convenient for biking as a whole. Plus, Arlington does not have a public transportation system. So without a car, you’d need some transportation alternatives to get you around in Arlington.
