What to know about moving in Fort Worth

What’s the cost of living in Fort Worth?

The average resident of Fort Worth pays $1,544 in living costs every month.1 This total includes most necessary monthly costs like rent, utilities, food, and gas. And while this puts Fort Worth firmly on the more affordable end of our list of cities with the lowest living costs, there’s even more good news. The city’s median individual income is $32,058,1 which is higher than several cities with bigger living costs.

Overall, these two factors make Fort Worth a very affordable city for its size.

How much does a home cost in Fort Worth?

In January 2021, the median home value in the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington metro area was $215,700.2 So like the city’s living costs, Fort Worth’s homes are relatively affordable compared to the rest of the country.

That said, home prices are increasing across the nation, and Texas is no exception. Between 2020 and 2021, home prices in Texas went up by 12.4%.3 This is far from the most dramatic increase in our report, but it’s still concerning and it might mean that Fort Worth’s home prices won’t be so affordable a year—or even a few months—from now.

Does Fort Worth have good public schools?

Students in Fort Worth’s public schools perform slightly below academic averages reported by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP). In math and reading—the only two subjects the NAEP reports Fort Worth’s 2019 data for—fourth-grade and eighth-grade students in Fort Worth performed at least slightly below nationwide averages for large cities.4

How hot does Fort Worth get?

As you’d expect from a city in Texas, Fort Worth gets pretty hot, especially in the summer. The city’s hottest season is between June and September, and it gets warmest in August with temperatures as high as 102°F.5

What does this mean for your Fort Worth move? It means that, if possible, you should try to avoid moving in the summer. While 100-degree temperatures are livable, they’re too hot to comfortably move in and they can be dangerous if you work too hard, especially if you don’t hydrate properly.

If your move date is up to you, shoot for late spring or early fall to catch Fort Worth’s nicest temperatures. If a summer move can’t be avoided, make sure you and your moving crew drink plenty of water throughout the day and spend little time in the sun.
