Our CandysDirt.com Staff Shindig at the Jordan Tonight

Jordan invitation

We will be serving French 75, the drink that got me in trouble last week — KIDDING! No, we are going to let our hair down, maybe even go curly, so do pop over for a look/see at the most luxurious apartment living in Dallas du jour. I hear the views are to die for…

These new stats just crossed my desk from my friend Andrew at ApartmentList, so I’ll share. I mean, compared to Plano, Dallas is almost a friggin’ bargain! (ALMOST!)

In Dallas, rent prices grew by 0.1% between May and June, and are up 5.8% over last year. The median rent for a 1-bedroom in Dallas is $1,230, while a 2-bedroom costs $1,590.

  • Plano: Other than Dallas itself, Plano has the highest rents within the Dallas metro, with a median 2-bedroom price of $1,530. Rents in Plano have increased by 6.7% over the past year.
