It's all relative Posted On: 4/2/2008 11:07:14 AM
I was thinking of relocaating to Arlington, TX from NYC. I see a few posts about Arlington being too crowded, crime is high...etc. etc..
I'm coming from New York a city of 8 million people, i live in the county of Kings(Brooklyn) which has approx. 2 million people. The city is still growing. The real estate market is out of control. I make 85,000 dollars a year and cannot afford to buy a home in NYC. A one bedroom condo starts at 1.5 million, a house under 1,000 sq ft goes for 400,000 and up. Crime although it went down it still is a significant amount. I'm sure Arlington cannot compare. I see the houses in Arlington are very affordable, and you get alot for your money.
So tell me Honestly,would it be a mistake to relocate to Arlington, or should I look elsewhere.
