what is the advantage of these vs plal.com? seems that their current list price is $367, don't remember how much their shipping is, so perhaps same price in the end?
thanks ... do you have a zip code on eagle mountain or lake worth? Looks like they are not close to downtown when I use google maps ...
okay, post-trip report: stayed in Mariott in downtown Ft Worth. Old building in need of a makeover, but central location at least in Sundance Square. Downtown area is okay fot its size and seems walkable ... Bass performance hall looked very nice from outside at least. Saw some downtown condos with a realtor and also some houses in Arlington area. Looks like condos not a good investment at the moment as nobdoy is buying them .... one can get a very nice house in a...
any suggestions on things to do or other places to eat while in Ft Worth area? Looks like the Scat Jazz Lounge in Sundance Square is a potentially nice spot.
Thanks. A realtor is sending me listing now to look at from a wide range. RE White Settlement, I assume that near White Settlement Road. What's wrong with that area as someone commented. RE Mansfield, looks like one can get a very nice big house there for there $$, but looks like it's a little too far south for my liking pluse the earlier negative comments. is it really that bad?
these are helpful comments. I'll be going to the area on Friday so will be able to see firsthand. Will be staying in downtown Ft Worth but will also make it into Dallas. I stayed in downtown Dallas a couple of weeks ago (Adolphus Hotel, very nice), went out in a few parts of town, near the hotel on Main St., a bit further away near the American Airlines Arena and W Hotel, to the McKinney St area, and also the Uptown area I think. Not sure what to think since that...
supposedly the downtown Ft Worth area has some walkable areas with bars/restaurants (Sundance Square) and there are condos/town homes near there, but after some initial research it seems that they have not been selling recently that much. are there any nice residential areas real close to downtown ft worth where one could find a nice house in my price range?
wouldn't want to commute more than 15-20 minutes. job is south of downtown, near intersection of I-35 and I-20.
thanks for the info. that sort of agrees with my initial impressions of what I've read so far. RE Dallas, I stayed there during the interview ands wasn't that impressed with the downtown area, so perhaps living further away isn't that big a deal, and I don't see myself as a happy camper driving too much for work, etc.
All, anyone here know much about Ft Worth, Texas? I have a job offer there and as part of the due diligence am going there next weekend to check out the real estate market firsthand, trying to assess what one can get in the 300-450k range. It seems like one option would be a nice downtown Ft Worth Condo/townhome, while another would be a nice house in the surrounding area (e.g., SW Arlington?), although I wouldn't want a commute more than 15-20 minutes so that narrows it...
