Newark Real Estate

About 25 miles north of Fort Worth lies a tiny community called Newark, Texas. The community is stretched among Tarrant and Wise Counties and makes up a land area of just 0.7 square miles. It is mostly a rural community and is not densely populated. In July 2007, the population was estimated at just over 1,000 residents.

The community is about 50 miles west of Dallas, but it is within easy reach of major destinations such as Alliance Airport and the Texas Motor Speedway. Its low population and rural surrounding are what lure most of those who choose to settle here, those hoping to escape the busy hustle and bustle of the cities and suburbs.

Construction, finance, insurance and health care are the sectors in which the most numbers of Newark residents are employed. The community's residents were measured to have a median household annual income in 2008 of just over $51,000, an increase of more than $15,000 since the 2000 census. Home values in Newark were measured in 2008 to have a median value of almost $97,000, more than double their value in 2000.

The nearest hospital is about eight miles away in Azle, and the town is located on the north end of Eagle Mountain Lake, a popular attraction for residents to visit, particularly during the spring and summer. Newark gets an average of 33 inches of rain per year, less than the U.S. average. It gets an average snowfall of just two inches per year, much less than the national average. Children under 18 living in Newark will be zoned to attend schools in the Northwest Independent School District, including two elementary schools, one middle school and one high school. Delora Doughty Royal City Park and South Wise County Park are popular visits as well.
