Prices there start at $ 980 for a 884-square-foot one-bedroom bedroom with basic amenities like carpeting, ceiling fans, and mini-blinds. A 1,054-square-foot apartment starts at $ 1,120.

D-FW's rent increases stalled during the pandemic but have resumed the march.

Several Plano apartments on Zumper cost around $ 1,500 for a bedroom and bathroom. Others start in the $ 1,100 range.

According to Zumper, median rents in Plano range from $ 1,121 for a studio apartment to $ 2,750 for a four-bedroom apartment.

The average rental price for a one-bedroom apartment in Plano is $ 1,221. According to Zumper, that’s an 11% increase, or $ 122, year over year.

Mid-year house prices in the D-FW area averaged a record $ 1,279 a month, according to data from RealPage in Richardson, The Dallas Morning News previously reported.

Despite rising prices, the demand for apartments in the region continues to grow. Net rentals of homes in North Texas were 15,437 units in the second quarter, an all-time high, according to RealPage.

And in June, more than 38,000 apartments were under construction in D-FW – most of them in all US markets.
