Okay, so April felt non-existent – are we right? Even though last month seemed to move by at the speed of light, we helped almost one thousand clients in DFW find an apartment (which is more than 120 more than we did in April 2019)! This tells us two big things – the first is that even with the impact of social distancing, it still remains the busiest time of year for renters. The second is that with in-person touring off the table, our business was able to pivot in a way that still helped clients feel acquainted with their new spaces in order to make a decision about moving that was comfortable to them. With everything as unpredictable as it is, being able to bring a sense of normalcy to almost a thousand of our clients is a “win” in our book!
In April we also brought our social media followers more than 35 posts showcasing amazing pricing throughout the Metroplex, including a formal company expansion and sharing of local apartment deals in Fort Worth which you can view here. Pricing in Dallas, Texas is affected by a number of things, especially location, so we wanted to list out what we posted to our social media accounts as a way for renters to gauge the market and set expectations accordingly. Whether you use one of our free agents to search for your next apartment or not, it’s crucial to know where the local apartment market rests so you know you’re getting the best deal possible. Renters like to do their own research, and we’re here for it!
To make the market a little easier to understand what great pricing looks like right now in Dallas, here’s a lineup of all the April deals we featured.
A deal’s a deal, but we have our favorites…
April 7 – $500 per roomie in Northeast Dallas, Two-bedroom unit – $1,000
We never see pricing this low! The property is just a short drive from Downtown and units were bright and spacious. Finishes in the unit were slightly dated in a sense of black appliances, countertops, and cabinetry, but if price-for-location is more important to you as a renter than price-for-finishes, this deal was calling your name! You can’t beat a two-bedroom unit in Midtown for less than $1.2k.

April 8 – Exclusive pricing for Smart City clients in Legacy West, Studio unit, $915
Something extremely unique about being a Smart City client is exclusive access to special pricing we negotiate and establish with local properties, aka a ‘negotiated deal.’ This is one of those instances – the market price was $1,229 and only Smart City clients could get that unit for $915 per month, saving them almost $4k throughout their lease term! Not to mention the property is in the heart of West Plano’s premier entertainment district and walking distance to more than 40 restaurants – definitely a steal.

April 28 – Good things come in 3s in North Fort Worth, Three-bedroom unit – $1,610
Plus, a garage! This unit featured a lot of great space and lighter accents to make it bright. Splitting this unit with two roomies would mean $537/month per roomie, which is insanely low! If North Fort Worth/ Fossil Creek is a spot you’re interested in moving to, this deal was screaming your name.

Something to keep in mind when viewing our favorite units we posted in April is that they fly off the market relatively fast! So, if you’re not following us already and know you’re going to be moving sometime this year, go ahead and hit that “follow” button so you can message us as soon as you see something to your liking.
