To Roomie or Not to Roomie, That is The Question: Dallas Edition

Some of our best stories probably come from a great roommate we had back in college whom we still call a close friend. Inversely, we all probably have at least two nightmare roommate stories up our sleeves. It’s almost like a competition of who has the best/worst roommate story. Oh, your roommate left a pan out for two weeks? Well, mine left the oven on for 15 hours and didn’t notice. Boom, trumped. If these Dallas apartments could talk, they would have stories aplenty. Some people have had truly amazing experiences sharing an apartment with someone and some haven’t been so lucky. There’s pros and cons to both sides.

Living on your own can be awesome. You don’t have to answer to anybody, if the apartment is a mess you have no one to be mad at but yourself, and you can decorate however the heck you want. Feel like putting a tapestry up because you recently watched the movie Dazed and Confused? Go for it. Feel like putting a lime green couch in your living room? No one to consult, go get ‘em tiger. All of these apartment-related freedoms come at a price, though. Living on your own can cost a pretty penny. Before you wave goodbye to your, “Hey is this your almond milk or mine?” days, take a look at what each price point could land you for a one bedroom.

LOFT IN DEEP ELLUM

Dallas lofts are super cool. They are all unique and have their own character. Some have exposed brick walls, others have large open windows, or better yet they have both! If you’re looking for a big open space, a loft will be perfect for you!

Now, the roomie side of the debate. You love Dallas and you like to love Dallas through all hours of the night. Stumbling in at 3am on a Tuesday because you just tripped into a ton of different things going on Downtown may mean you’ll want a super roommate-friendly floorplan where your late night cooking sesh won’t be incredibly disturbing to your sleeping roommate. But you know what the coolest pro of having a roommate is? When you don’t have the time to run home to let your dog out, or check that thing on your calendar you knew you were forgetting you can call them up and have them save the day. You’ll save a lot of money and get to have the same level of quality that you thought you could afford on your own (here in Dallas, we all have to have that reality check once in a while). Sometimes those one bedrooms are just wayy too expensive.

DOWNTOWN

Brand new apartments in a developing part of Downtown! Live right next to the Dallas Farmers Market and have first dibs on all of the fresh, locally grown products before everyone in Uptown and Knox/Henderson wakes up and beats you to it!

Walking distance to Downtown hot spots and plenty of visitor parking since it’s a newer property, yesss!
