    I've worked as an apartment locator in Dallas for over a decade, so over the years I've picked up a few tips and tricks guaranteed to make sure you get not only the lowest price on a new place, but that you also don't get any nasty surprises when you move in. So, read on if you're ready to take the apartment hunting bull by the proverbial horns.

    1. DON'T go looking for an apartment on a weekend but DO plan your day

     

    This is the most common time for people to go and look at a new place, and you'll often end up waiting for hours at popular properties, which means you get to see less places. There are even unscrupulous leasing agents who will intentionally drag out your time at each property so you can't go and see their competitor. They'll say

    Now that Cupid has traded arrows for swipes, finding love/like/tolerate-for-a-free-dinner has never been...easier? Maybe you have seen these (or secretly are one of them) types of people on Tinder in DFW. 

    The Pet Person
    Has a photo of either their pet, or them with their pet in their profile, and may, or may not refer to said pet as their child. There will be jokes about how any potential match has to pass the "Duke/Lola/Nolan/Bailey" test before things actually happen. Perpetually covered in pet hair, and can't wait to show you photos of the pet in a costume.

    Realtors vs. Robots - The Rise of the Drone

    If you'd told me back in 2005 when I first got into Real Estate that I would soon be flying a drone over my clients' homes while capturing live video on a portable tablet, I'd have called you crazy. A genius maybe, but definitely crazy. Yet here we are today. We now have the power to capture images that until recently were unobtainable to anybody without a pilot's license. To tell the true story of a home and its neighborhood. To give buyers from across the world a vivid, accurate portrait of a city they've never seen, and a house they have yet to call home.
