Apartment dwelling in the Dallas Region comes in all types and sizes — your perfect apartment is just waiting for you to make it home. Communities range from traditional apartment complexes to luxury high-rise buildings to large-scale communities with every bell and whistle imaginable. Some newer apartment communities offer amenities such as dog runs, workout facilities, tanning services, and community activities ranging from movies on the lawn to wine tastings to Monday Night Football parties. In recent years, mixed-use communities — which include not only multiple apartment buildings, but also restaurants, retail, movie theaters, and underground parking — have popped up all over, appealing to a segment of people who desire an urban, walkable neighborhood experience without the responsibilities of home-ownership.

Temporary Housing

What if you need to relocate to Dallas before you find a place to live? Should your company want you to start your job in Dallas right away, or if you’ve sold your house before you have a new one, you need a company that specializes in temporary housing. These companies keep ready-to-go units in apartment buildings that are stocked with all of the comforts of home — furniture, kitchenware, bedding, electronics — and all the utilities already turned on. The only thing you have to do is show up with your suitcase. You can work through a real estate agent or your corporate relocation company to find a business that specializes in this service. Typically, the length of your stay will depend on the number of days approved by your company’s relocation policy.

At Your Service

You may want to live in an apartment building with a concierge. Several Dallas Region luxury apartment buildings employ people who not only monitor who enters and leaves the building, but who also assist residents, collecting mail when they are away on vacation, letting in repairmen when they can’t be home, taking in packages and other deliveries, and handling emergencies. Talk to your real estate agent or work with an apartment locator who specializes in high-end rentals to find the right level of service for you.
