But first, the truth is, Dallas’s appeal is nothing new. If you look back in history, you’ll see that Dallas has always been known for its ability to attract and create wealth, and it has long been a haven for goods, services and entertainment. Birthed from an entrepreneurial spirit, Dallas was founded by John Neely Bryan in 1841 as a trading post. It soon became a hub for business, offering the surrounding rural areas a place to get everything one needed, from shoes to insurance. By 1870, Dallas had already grown to a population of about 3,000. By the early 20th century, Dallas was the southwestern leader of the book, pharmaceutical, liquor and jewelry markets as well as the world’s leading inland cotton manufacturer and one of the best saddlery and cotton gin machinery manufacturers in the world.

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…
