Living in DeSoto, TX

Located approximately 30 minutes from Dallas, DeSoto, TX, is a good compromise for renter households who appreciate the proximity of the amenities of a big city while relinquishing the tranquil lifestyle of suburbia. Renting an apartment in DeSoto will give you access to a diverse and friendly community and an abundance of green spaces and parks at your doorsteps. Renters who enjoy an active lifestyle will appreciate the proximity of hiking trails and the BMX tracks. The low cost of living in DeSoto makes the suburb an attractive option for renters who are gearing up for retirement. However, make sure that your rental apartment has a high-performing air conditioning system to endure the long and muggy summers when temperatures frequently climb up to the high 90°F and above. Besides, crime — especially property crime — can be a concern in DeSoto, so ensure that your apartment’s doors and windows are correctly locked.

Renting in DeSoto, TX

Renter households are the minority in DeSoto as the majority of people living here own their homes. DeSoto is a dense suburban town with housing consisting of a mix of detached single-family homes, gated communities, condominium buildings, and larger apartment communities. Housing — including rental housing — is more affordable in DeSoto than in the rest of the country. Most landlords request a security deposit to secure a rental apartment in DeSoto. There is no maximum set amount for security deposit per Texas rental laws, but the majority of landlords charge the equivalent of one month’s rent.

Things for renting

Shopping in DeSoto, TX

Most grocery stores in DeSoto are located along the main highways, so you may need to find an apartment for rent within the vicinity of a large communication axis if the distance to shopping is a concern. HEB, Kroger, and Tom Thumb are the main grocers in DeSoto, and renters will also find national chains like Aldi and Walmart. DeSoto also offers a plethora of family-owned convenience stores for any last-minute grocery runs. The largest shopping mall in DeSoto is the Crossing Shopping Center, which features national brands and fast-food chains. DeSoto does not currently have a farmer’s market, but the Farmers’ Delight provides an assortment of fresh products and baked goods. Besides, renter households are just a 25-minute drive away from the endless shopping opportunities of Dallas to fulfill any additional needs.

Transportation in DeSoto, TX

Like many suburbs that were designed to be dependent on private transportation in the 1950s, DeSoto is not very walkable, so renters use their cars to accomplish most errands or commute to work. DeSoto’s most walkable neighborhoods are Northwest Estates, Mantlebrook, and Briarwood. Renters who commute to work will also find that public transportation options are also quite limited. DeSoto is part of the STAR transit system, with one bus route serving several stops within the town — including several industrial parks — connecting to the UNT DART station in Dallas. Therefore, it can be a good option for renters employed in these areas. Alternatively, renters can use ridesharing services like Uber and Lyft, which are available in the area.
