You may have noticed properties popping up on nearly every corner in Dallas lately. In 2023, Dallas ranked #2 in the top U.S. cities for new apartment construction. With the significant influx of new spots to live, residents have an opportunity to score some pretty incredible savings while enjoying the latest trends and offerings in apartment life.



Imagine stepping into your home knowing that it’s never been used. Soak in the untouched space and relish the feeling of living in a unit that’s yours from day one. The paint is fresh, the carpet is brand new, and the appliances have zero wear-and-tear. Things are spotless and pristine.



When a property is brand new and ready to open its doors, it enters a phase called the lease-up. This stage is a crucial period in which management and owners strive to lease units as quickly as possible, and in order to do so, the property will often incentivize renters with hefty discounts, concessions, and waived move-in fees. Although this stage is temporary, it provides a win-win situation for both properties and renters. 



Construction and technology capabilities have come a long way, so your unit will most likely have things like great insulation, high-efficiency appliances, and the most up-to-date builder safety compliances. On top of that, you may have Smart Home perks like keyless entry, Smart lights and thermostat, built-in speakers, and more. Since everything was literally purchased and installed prior to move in, everything in your home should be working flawlessly.



Trends change and so do our tastes & preferences, but if you’re like us, you love a good aesthetic and want your home to reflect your personal style. You’ve probably noticed some trending designs on social media. You might even peruse Pinterest at times for some pretty kitchen inspo. Whether you love black with gold hardware, Kim K-inspired neutrals, or blue hues for days, choosing to rent at a brand new building gives you access to the best of the best interior finishes. Designers ensure that units look spiffy and fresh for those website photos, and the community amenity spaces will most likely share the same vision.



New builds are taking everything to the next level in order to stand out to competitors and attract tenants, and apartment amenities are paramount to that achievement. We’ve seen tons of streamlined, sophisticated, and thoughtfully designed spaces in the newer properties that clearly were built with savvy Dallasites in mind. Some of these features include private resident bars, elite gyms, saunas, glam rooms, music recording studios, and more. In fact, we wrote an entire blog post about apartments elevating their amenities. Choosing an apartment with amenities that you actually want to use will save you a considerable amount of cash in the long run, allowing you to replace outside memberships and services while improving your daily living.
