Unlike many of the sunbelt cities here, Arlington, Texas, didn’t make the list because it was hard hit by the recession. In fact, the opposite is true. This thriving home to the Texas Rangers and the Dallas Cowboys also includes University of Texas-Arlington. Given its low foreclosure rate, price-to-rent ratio of 8, its below-average unemployment rate and rich recreational activities, this Dallas-Fort Worth suburb might be a “smart” choice for wanna-be home buyers.
