Is it just me, or are apartments in Dallas expensive as hell for their size and for being Dallas?

Ummm, no they’re not in line with NYC OR DC prices. I’ve lived in both cities before moving to Dallas.

If you were to spend the same amount of money in Dallas, you would live in a luxury building or in a full townhome.

Agree. I personally live in One Dallas Center because my rent has stayed below market and I think the building is probably the nicest for the money in DFW but have been surprised to see some how expensive some of the new apartments are. Overall the lack of state income tax keeps cost down, esp for 2 income households, but with a car being a de facto requirement (plus gas, insurance, and parking), the overall cost of living for a single person in the downtown area has increased quite a bit. Even a few years ago, Dallas was arguably the best deal in the country relative to salary. All in, for a single person it is even creeping up on living in the city of Chicago cost-wise. The job market is still stellar but for those not geographically tied to a location the appeal has definitely reduced.

Cityplace (across 75 from west village) $1500 for a 1bd/bth - 940sqft apartment.

My S/O’s sister live in NY and has a room the size of my closet for $1,800. Definitely cheaper and larger here

It's not you. Dallas is definitely one of the more expensive non coastal cities. I feel like only Austin in higher.

Maybe look at renting an individually owned town home or condo. My rent has always been below $1000 in Dallas. This is doable in Oaklawn and some of mstreets . It seems an entire mortgage could be less than some of these apartments for the same space.

Prices can be super high here or super low, even within a few mins from each other.

What does it even mean by “for being Dallas?”

Just comparing Dallas to large metro areas and it seems to be right up there with NYC, Chicago, and DC prices.

I’m on uptown/Katy Trail in a small one bedroom for $1500. It’s not cheap but I saw other deals on 75N for around $1250. I have a friend who lives closer to the airport paying $900.

Has anyone looked into moving into the new Village neighborhood on Southwestern? Those are looking nice.

My 2 bed, 2 bed near Northpark mall was over $2K. It was a brand new building with great amenities. But it is just Dallas so it was hard to continue to justify paying that instead of buying. But to buy single family homes in that same Preston Hollow area is crazy expensive plus the high property taxes to account for no state income tax. I recently moved back home (since I’m working from home) until I get clarity on where I want to go next which will probably be California. If I’m going to pay crazy housing prices, I might as well be near an ocean.

I’m in a two bedroom (1300sqft) in west village and pay 2200. Based on friends in Denver, Chicago, NYC and LA... I have a mansion.

Which building?
