Hundreds of different options in Dallas at any given time, people that are new to the area often feel overwhelmed once they start their search for a new home. While there are many older units here that are nice choices, the best choices can often be buildings of recent construction. These often have the features that people want the most. At this day and age, some the apartments can be viewed through youtube.
What is different about newer units?
Perhaps the biggest change to units is the fact that the floor plans are better. Most of these complexes specialize in studio units through two-bedrooms or one-bedrooms through three-bedrooms. Most of these will include an en suite bath with the master but some units have one bathroom for each bedroom. The kitchens are also open to the main living room, which makes the unit seem larger but is also a great option not only for family living but also entertaining.
These units often have more storage space in the form of closets, cupboards and kitchen cabinets. People also may find that there are entry closets, laundry areas or larger balconies and patio areas than in older units.
Energy efficient features are often found in the newer units. This can come in the form of low e windows that keep out heat and cold while allowing considerable light. Most places provide energy efficient appliances too. A few places have been built using recycled materials or heavier insulation. People can also find units with ceiling fans and programmable thermostats.
The styling details are often the same attractive kinds that people will find in model homes. These can be almost anything but granite counter tops, tile backsplashes and laminate flooring are all popular. People will also find details like crown molding, 2” wood style mini blinds and stainless steel appliances.
The amenities at the newer properties are often above and beyond what people might expect from older units. Many properties have a central courtyard that is like a mini resort. It may have a pool, spa and areas for al fresco dining. Some places that allow pets also have a private pet park for dog exercise.
In addition to traditional features like a fitness center and a clubhouse, many places have expanded features. These can include a business center, cyber café or Wi-Fi offered in the common areas.
