What You Need to Prepare for a Smooth Move

Your search for housing for rent can be a daunting and stressful task, but it doesn't have to be if you do a little preparation for that dreaded foray into the world of apartment and house hunting! It can be easy to get excited and plow ahead, but that usually means you'll encounter obstacles that might cause you to lose that perfect place you had your eye on. Lesson? Preparation is more advantageous than procrastination! The best time of year for your search will be in December or in June. These two times are usually when the housing market opens up a bit and you might have more properties to choose from. Another tip is to begin your search with about four weeks to spare before actually have to move. If by chance, you find you need to move during late summer or early fall, you might add a couple of weeks to that search bracket just to be safe! You will also need to have certain information ready and available to share with potential landlords. Enlisting the help of a realtor or local broker can be a valuable tool for finding a great deal in an area you love and want to settle in. The information you need is standard for most leasing companies and landlords. You will need your personal identification, work references and prior rental history as well as your credit report. Having money set aside for application fees, lease deposits and pet deposits is also a proactive way to get and hold onto a place once you find it!

Addison's Neighborhoods

Addison is full of charm and history, much of which is evident down every lane, drive, road and avenue. A small, but exquisitely cared for community with three unmistakable neighborhoods, Addison will enfold you in its friendly vibe and enchant you with its lushly landscaped gardens, parks and recreational areas. Below are some qualities each area is known for.

North Addison: If you are a fan of aircraft and memorabilia from WWI or WWII, or an avid golfer, this might be just the neighborhood in which to rent an apartment. The Cavanaugh Flight Museum and Bent Tree Country Club are both located in North Addison and flank beautiful streets with small to medium-sized properties. Most of what you'll see here are high-rise apartments and condominiums. North Addison is clean of debris, has excellent parking, cis lose to the Dallas North Tollway and just far away from the hustle and bustle of the city to be a relaxing respite at the end of each day!

Town Center: Addison's town center is a minute or two from Beltline Rd. and is filled with acres of trails and landscaped gardens. From any one of the many complexes or a few of the older, more established properties, you are only a five-minute walk from Addison Circle Park, Bosque Park, Beckert Park, Parkview Park or Spruill Park. Imagine that! Five gorgeous parks within walking distance in the town center! A popular draw worth mentioning in this trendy neighborhood is Astoria Caffe and Wine Bar on Morris Avenue -- perfect places to meet up with friends and neighbors and unwind from your workday.

South Addison: This neighborhood is closest to the Dallas Galleria and impeccable shopping choices. From Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue to the most adorable eclectic boutiques, this area is a fashionistas fantasy come true! The properties are mostly small to medium sized (think studios to three bedrooms max) and are predominantly in the form of complexes and condominiums. There are houses for rent as well, but not as many to choose from in comparison. So if you prefer a house to an apartment, begin your search at least six weeks ahead of time during late March or late June for possible availabilities.

Living In Addison

With 118 acres of parks, it is a common sight to see your neighbors as well as business people and tourists out walking and enjoying the beauty of the town. Although Addison is small in size, it is huge on entertainment, community development and artistic growth. If high-end shopping is your passion, you can rest easy knowing that Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Avenue are a stone's throw away in the Dallas Galleria. However, if you prefer to find more unique items that suit your exact personality, there are a plethora of locally owned boutiques just waiting to be discovered by your inner fashionista! Addison is also a cultural mecca for those with a thirst for the arts who just don't want to deal with the hassles associated with the traffic of Dallas. The WaterTower Theatre, The Cavanaugh Flight Museum, The North Texas Jazz Festival and the Addison Oktoberfest are just a few of the spectacular places and events that Addison advocates and supports for residents and visitors alike. On weekends, you are likely to find locals at The Point Addison on Beltline Rd. or over at The Hub, just a bit further up the road. Great music, yummy food and ice cold beers make both of these establishments a hit with all who enter! So what are you waiting for? This city is yours to explore, enjoy and love!

Methodology - Recent Updates:

Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.


Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

Read more about our methodology here.

About Rent Reports:

Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
