Chief economist for RealPage, Greg Willett, accredits high apartment demand to strong job growth, limited loss of renters to home ownership, and attractive new apartment communities.

Tenants Experiencing "Sticker Shock" in Dallas

In a recent local news report from Channel 8 News, Dallas, TX, renters in the area described their experience with a pattern of frequent rent increases.

According to the news report, “The newly published April 2017 Dallas Rent Report shows prices across the city remain above the national media. On average, one-bedroom apartments were leasing for $1,260. Two-bedroom units were renting at $1,760.”

While property owners gladly invite the increase in rent prices, tenants are finding it difficult to keep up. Despite new apartment complexes springing up across the city, the demand for apartments in one of the many trending areas of Dallas remains constant; which could be contributing to rising rent rates.
