Time to Buy? Dallas Rents on the Rise in 2017

A new real estate report by ABODO analyzing the American rental market predicts rents will keep rising in Dallas through the rest of 2017. ADOBO examined rental prices through the first six months of the year and found rent for a one-bedroom apartment in Dallas rose 4 percent to an average of $1,221 per month—which is the 12th largest increase in the country, according to ADOBO. For a two-bedroom apartment in Dallas, the rental rate rose 5.8 percent to an average of $1,673.

With ADOBO predicting rental rates will continue to increase through the end of the year, the townhome lifestyle could be the perfect solution for many DFW renters feeling the squeeze.
