Average Apartment rent in Arlington, TX

You should know the that price ranges for rentals are going to cover a very wide range. It can be hard to determine what you will need to budget for your own place. There are Arlington TX apartments that will start in the $600 range and increase from there. Some of the least expensive rentals are going to be near the University. Don’t expect to have much space or lavish amenities here. Expect only the basics.

It’s not uncommon to pay well over $1000. But you can also find great deals on 2 bedroom options that are in the low $900 range too. Furnished options will also be available at higher rates. The neighborhoods and areas will determine the pricing. But one thing you can count on is high electricity prices. The summer months are a real scorcher. It’s not uncommon to have a stretch of days that are in the low 100-degree range. That’s why it’s important to ask the leasing agent about electricity bills. Newer construction might save you more money than you think.

You should know that there are many old apts that are run by sketchy management companies. Anytime you have rents in a very low range, you can expect slower repair times and more maintenance requests.
