Located midway between Dallas and Fort Worth, Arlington is known as a haven for sports fans and a burgeoning tech center.

The city has a major league baseball park and a brand new football stadium. The University of Texas at Arlington boasts a "technology incubator" that locals hope will attract more investment from major technology companies.

When it comes to buying a home in Arlington, the city's new neighborhood stabilization program could prove advantageous for homebuyers.

Under the program, qualified buyers are eligible for funding assistance to buy foreclosed homes in certain areas. But act fast, the program ends in August 2010. --B.R.
