Famous rapper and reality TV star Vanilla Ice grew up in Carrollton, TX. Don't worry, we're not going to make a joke about how Carrollton is "too cool"... sort of.

Carrollton is a suburb of Dallas, TX. In 2006 and 2008, "Money _Magazine" included Carrollton as one of the best places to live in the United States. Carrollton started as an agrarian farming town, but when Dallas began to grow, so did Carrollton and especially when the St. Louis Southwestern Railway was built to cross through it in 1888. The railroad helped bring products into and out of the town. The citys biggest boom happened after the Second World War, when people seeking a nice suburban life sought out Dallas suburbs. Today, Carrollton remains a nice place to live.

Moving to Carrollton

So, you're thinking of moving to the Dallas area and don't want to live in the big city? Carrollton might be a good choice for you if you want something nice, suburban, clean and friendly. If you're looking for an apartment, there is a chance you'll find one. You might be pleasantly surprised by the reasonable rents if you're looking for a studio or one bedroom apartment. If you just want a nice place with great access to a big city nearby, you've come to the right place.

While looking for an apartment during your search for a home in Carrollton, you're going to want to compile some necessary documents to turn in with your application. Starting your apartment search prepared helps ensure that you put an application in as soon as possible, and don't miss out on your dream apartment when its rented to someone else who got there first. First of all, you'll want to make copies of your personal ID. Then, you'll want to gather financial info like your bank statements, tax returns, and any other proof of what you have in the bank. You'll also want to get proof of employment to show potential landlords you will have a way to pay their rent, and also reference letters from previous landlords to prove that you will be a good tenant. Finally, make sure that you have a well-stocked bank account. Moving can be rather expensive, and getting your things from one house to another costs a lot of money. You'll want to be able to cover moving expenses, as well as any brokers fees that you might be charged by the person who helps you find an apartment. Additionally, you'll also need to front a lot of money when renting usually at least first and last months rent, sometimes in addition to a security deposit.

Living in Carrollton

Living in Carrollton can be like a dream if you're looking for a suburb in a lovely town. But is close enough to get out of town to Dallas.

There is public transportation in the area: DART is Dallas transportation system (Dallas Area Rapid Transit). If you want to take a bus to Dallas, DART has one for you.

Blooms Candy and Soda Pop Shop is also a favorite.

For sports lovers, Carrollton has some excellent golf. The Coyote Ridge Golf Club is a favorite with affordable golfing, nice club facilities, and a restaurant. Indian Creek is also a golfing choice a 36-hole daily fee facility situated along the beautiful and scenic Trinity River.

Finally, make sure that you have a well-stocked bank account. Moving can be rather expensive, and getting your things from one house to another costs a lot of money. You'll want to be able to cover moving expenses, as well as any brokers fees that you might be charged by the person who helps you find an apartment. Additionally, you'll also need to front a lot of money when renting usually at least first and last months rent, sometimes in addition to a security deposit.

    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.

    Methodology:

    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.

      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.
