Why LIVE IN Westcliff
Westcliff West are neighborhoods close to Texas Christian University (TCU). The area is known for its Tudor-style homes built in the 1920s and its hip Mid-Century modern homes from the 1950s. It’s a college town that’s been morphing into a family community as folks move in and renovate these classic houses. There are some new homes being built as well. Let’s explore what’s cool about Westcliff and Westcliff West.
From Cowtown to College Town
The Westcliff neighborhood’s history begins in the 1920s. But TCU was (and is still) the engine behind the expansion of the Fort Worth communities that surround it. TCU got its humble start in 1869. The Clark brothers (who founded the college) sold everything they owned to buy a larger building in Waco, TX to accommodate the growing student body. It seems that TCU was meant to be in Fort Worth – the building in Waco burned down in 1910. By now the college was doing so well that it had several courters who wanted TCU to reopen in their town. Fort Worth made them an offer they couldn’t refuse. The enticement included 200,000 buckaroos, 50 acres of land, and streetcar service.
Westcliff is ranked the number four neighborhood in Fort Worth. It comes in at #260 out of all neighborhoods in Texas – ranking above 95% of other areas in the state. You know, this really big state with tons of other neighborhoods. It is also a very safe community: Westcliff crime is down 13% year over year. Not that crime was high. It’s 7% lower than the U.S. average. Great schools, naturally. School test scores are 71% higher than the U.S. average.
It Ain’t Cheap
All that charm and proximity to TCU comes at a steep price. Don’t despair – there are still opportunities to get into the neighborhood at an affordable price. And remember the ridiculously low mortgage rates we have right now. Take advantage. Okay, let’s talk numbers.
Median home value is 40% higher than the U.S. average at $258,142. Home values are 81% higher than the rest of Texas. Median rent is $972 – only 2% higher than the U.S. average.
Income per capita is 44% higher than the U.S. average at $42,859. Median household income in Westcliff / Westcliff West is 47% higher than the U.S. average at $81,358.

Small but Fierce
You may already follow the TCU football team, the Horned Frogs. For the uninitiated, it was the university’s first yearbook that bore the name. The students selected the school colors of purple (representing royalty) and white (signifying a clean game). A Horned Frog is a “small but fierce lizard that was embraced as the school mascot.” (TCU About page.)
