Dallas 3Q23 Multifamily Market Insights Report: Sales velocity picks up spurred by economic growth


  • Vacancies were flat and rents ticked higher in Dallas-Fort Worth in the third quarter. Renter demand is being fueled by rapid growth in the local labor market, and developers are meeting heightened demand by delivering new rental properties.
  • Vacancy held steady at 6.6% in the third quarter, although the rate has risen 160 basis points during the past 12 months. The bulk of the increase occurred in the final few months of 2022, and vacancy levels have been mostly flat throughout much of this year.
