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. You might be able to negotiate a decent relocation package to help you cover some or all of the costs of moving to a new city. Make sure you research the neighborhood you’ll be moving into to make sure it’s got everything you’re looking for, whether that means you want to be within walking distance of good restaurants or you want to have access to good public transportation. It’s not hard to find everything you want in a neighborhood, but it does require some research. The Logistics Now for the complicated part…

Why You Should Rent An Apartment

Why You Should Rent an Apartment In The Fall/Winter

By | Dallas

Moving in the colder months, Psh! Who does that?! We do. Hear us out… Sure, moving in the Fall/Winter may not be as popular as a Summer move, but it definitely has it’s perks! Whether you’re looking for a new apartment, your own place, or relocating to Dallas for a new job, here are 4 reasons why you should rent in the Fall or Winter. Demand is Lower  Many people choose to move in the summertime because there’s more time on their hands. School is out, the days are longer, and we’re looking for any excuse to use that PTO. When the season ends, most people settle into their routine (school, work, etc.), and the demand to rent slows way down. This is the time to strike while the iron is hot, and save some serious cash! with a lower demand, rent is generally cheaper in the Fall; and if you really want to save money, consider a 15 month lease. Longer leases are typically lower in price and if you sign at the right time, it can end the following Winter, thus saving you more money on your next move!! Win, win. Serious Specials Trendy Summer moves = slow Fall/Winter rental market = sweet, sweet deals and specials. Lucky You! Properties NEED to lease their units, but no one likes to move during the holidays, so it’s common to hear about deals intended to generate traffic like, “Two months free,” or “Don’t pay rent until January 1st!” This is…
