Renting in DeSoto

Being a fairly large community, finding a home to rent in DeSoto shouldn't take you too long. However, it's always wise to leave enough time for your apartment search, as you don't want to be forced to bunk with a family of raccoons in a rundown house simply because it's the only place available. As a rule, it's good to allow at least four weeks to find a house or apartment to rent, particularly if you know you're picky. Things are quite standard when it comes to sorting out the paperwork. You'll need to have some kind of proof of income, your credit history and your rental history. Expect to hand over a month's rent up front, plus a sizable 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.

    September 2020 DeSoto Rent Report

    Welcome to the September 2020 DeSoto Rent Report. DeSoto rents increased over the past month. In this report, we'll evaluate trends in the DeSoto rental market, including comparisons to cities throughout the metro, state, and nation.

    DeSoto rents increased significantly over the past month

    DeSoto rents have increased 0.5% over the past month, and are up marginally by 0.8% in comparison to the same time last year. Currently, median rents in DeSoto stand at $1000 for a one-bedroom apartment and $1,243 for a two-bedroom. This is the seventh straight month that the city has seen rent increases after a decline in January. DeSoto's year-over-year rent growth leads the state average of -0.1%, as well as the national average of 0.3%.

      Rents rising across the Dallas Metro

      Throughout the past year, rent increases have been occurring not just in the city of DeSoto, but across the entire metro. Of the largest 10 cities that we have data for in the Dallas metro, 6 of them have seen prices rise. Here's a look at how rents compare across some of the largest cities in the metro.

      • Mesquite has seen the fastest rent growth in the metro, with a year-over-year increase of 2.9%. The median two-bedroom there costs $1,393, while one-bedrooms go for $1,121.
      • Over the past year, Irving has seen the biggest rent drop in the metro, with a decline of 1.0%. Median two-bedrooms there cost $1,227, while one-bedrooms go for $988.
      • Dallas proper has the least expensive rents in the Dallas metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,130; rents fell 0.2% over the past month and 0.4% over the past year.
      • McKinney has the most expensive rents of the largest cities in the Dallas metro, with a two-bedroom median of $1,463; rents grew 0.5% over the past month and 1.5% over the past year.

      DeSoto rents more affordable than many large cities nationwide

      As rents have increased marginally in DeSoto, other large cities nationwide have seen rents grow more quickly. DeSoto is still more affordable than most large cities across the country.

      • Although rents across cities in Texas have been slightly on the rise, the state's growth as a whole has held steady over the past year.
      • DeSoto's median two-bedroom rent of $1,243 is slightly above the national average of $1,195. Nationwide, rents have held steady over the past year.
      • While DeSoto's rents rose marginally over the past year, the city of Phoenix also saw an increase of 1.7%.
      • Renters will find more reasonable prices in DeSoto than most large cities. For example, San Francisco has a median 2BR rent of $2,956, which is more than twice the price in DeSoto.
