Fort Worth, TX Homes for Sale

Fort Worth - Residential Profile

When I think of Fort Worth, I think of its nickname “Cowtown” as the locals like to call it and its unique culture and heritage.  You can tell that the City works hard to keep its homegrown roots – even as it embraces growth like the rest of Dallas Fort Worth. Yet, Fort Worth has kept its old-fashioned values while celebrating its colorful Old West heritage. 

Fort Worth residents take great pride, and they should, in the ongoing transformation of its downtown area. Planned expansion of retail and restaurant areas, the construction of two mega-movie houses and the number of festivals and events hosted here has breathed new life into downtown Fort Worth. Sundance Square is just one example with restaurants, live theatre and live music, with the famed Fort Worth Stockyards just a mile away.

The Fort Worth arts scene is live and well here with the local support of an enviable arts scene, including the Nancy Lee and Perry R. Bass Performance Hall – the home of the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra, the Fort Worth Opera, the Fort Worth-Dallas Ballet, the lauded Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, and the much-loved Casa Mañana Theatre.

All that activity has attracted more and more people to the city’s downtown, with condos popping up to support the desire for a more urban lifestyle. Named one of “America’s Most Livable Communities,” Fort Worth is also a great value because of its overall lower cost of living – which is very competitive and comparable to the cost of living with other cities in Texas.
