The Ultimate Moving Checklist

By | Uncategorized

Moving can be stressful, especially if you’re heading across the country to pursue a new job opportunity. Dallas is one city that has always been known for its ability to attract and generate wealth — which is making it a popular destination for many people. If you’re heading to the Lone Star State, here is a quick and comprehensive moving guide for moving to Dallas, so you don’t forget anything important. Find an Apartment The first thing you need to do for your moving to Dallas checklist is find an apartment. Do some research on the city’s median rental rates. As of October 2018, the median rent in Dallas was $1,157 per month, but that can change dramatically depending on how many rooms you need and how much square footage there is. Plan on paying no more than 30 percent of your household income on housing costs. If you’re moving for a job, talk to your new employer.
