Texas Christian University

TCU lies in the old Chisholm trail city called Ft. Worth, Texas and is the home of the purple and white Horned Frogs. In 2007, the total number of students enrolled came to 7,267. As you could probably tell by the name, TCU is affiliated with the Christian Church and has been from its beginnings in 1873 when it was originally called AddRan College. AddRan is a contraction of the names of two brothers, Addison and Randolph Clark, who were East Texas preachers/teachers that envisioned starting a college that was “Christian in character, but non-sectarian in spirit.”

How’s the Ft. Worth real estate market?

A study done by USATODAY.com shows 5 year appreciation in 2007 to have been at 14.0%. This market is one that has taken many dips as of late, but most analysts seem to think that Ft. Worth has seen the bottom and the market it on it’s way back up. It appears that many investors feel the same way, because there is an increasing trend in the number of investors waiting to get into the market now.

Of course one of the benefits of buying near the TCU campus, or any college campus for that matter, is that property owners can keep their investments relatively insulated from the dips in the market as student housing is always a necessity and highly predictable. Of course it is never difficult to find a realtor on every corner in these markets, but that is where College Real Estate comes in. It is our goal to provide the potential homebuyer with the connection they need to a quality realtor.

Looking to lease in Ft. Worth?

If you’re looking to find student housing in an apartment, you’ll want to begin your search at least 45 days before the move date. There really aren’t many to choose from immediately near to campus. However there are many to choose from in the surrounding areas. In Stonegate, you’ll find prices for a one bedroom start around $550-$750. It’s a great area to live with many units available right on the Trinity River. One bedrooms start around $450-$550 in the Hulen Mall areas, and for a higher budget, the Downtown areas go for $800+.
