The cost to rent in the DFW market continues to edge up a little each month, while the year-over-year rent increases still are jumping off the chart.
In March, according to Apartment List, Dallas rents increased 1 percent and are up 17 percent year over year. In dollars, that means it's costing people $1,168 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,401 for a two-bedroom.
Apartment List says the last time rents didn't increase was way back in November 2020 in Dallas.
