Many neighborhoods near TCU benefit from close proximity to the university’s campus, and Westcliff is no exception. It offers residents a scenic drive to their home through picturesque buildings, old and new, and more than 26,000 square feet of flower beds (thanks to a nearly $900,000 endowment fund for the cause). The campus can also serve to insulate nearby home values, spitting out more than 1,500 graduates annually, many of whom choose to stay in the area.

It also results in the perfect formula for investment properties, with a pool of likely tenants nearby. In the last few years many builders have chosen Westcliff lots for new builds, a controversial subject for residents who cherish the one-story cottages and ranch-style homes. But home values are holding strong nonetheless. The median sales price in June 2015 was $304,000, and that number climbed to $316,000 by the same time in 2016.
