What to know about moving in Dallas

How much do utilities cost in Dallas?

The average Texan pays $356.53 every month for their utilities.1 This total includes the costs for streaming services, electricity, internet, gas, and water. This puts Texas in 22nd place in our rankings of states where utilities cost the most, so not EVERYTHING’s bigger in Texas.

How much is rent in Dallas?

In 2021, the average rent for a one-bedroom apartment in Dallas was $1,045.56, which was a bit higher than it was in other Texas cities like Houston ($942.78) and Fort Worth ($999.56).2 Still, rent in Dallas is relatively affordable considering the average rent in Austin and Plano is around $1,300.

Dallas’s rent is also well below other US cities of about the same size. For our study on rental price increases, we looked at the average rent in the US’s 75 most populous cities, and Dallas was in the cheaper half of the rankings.

That said, rent in Dallas did go up by 4.8% from 2020 to 2021. If that trend continues for a few years, Dallas will soon rank among the cities where rent costs the most.

How hot does it get in Dallas?

In August, the average high temperature in Dallas is 95° Fahrenheit and the average low is 77° Fahrenheit.3 As you can probably imagine, moving in 90-degree weather is miserable at best and dangerous at worst.

If you’re considering a move to or around Dallas and you haven’t picked your date yet, avoid moving in the middle of summer to miss working in the worst of the Texas heat. If a midsummer move can’t be avoided, try to do all the heavy lifting before noon when temperatures start to skyrocket.

It’s also essential to keep yourself and your moving crew—or your friend with the pickup truck— properly hydrated throughout your moving day. Keep plenty of water or energy drinks in a cooler.

Does Dallas have good barbecue?

Authentic Texas barbecue is world-renowned, and Dallas’s barbecue scene is no exception. In fact, we conducted a study to find the best barbecue in every state, and we found that Dallas is home to the most highly-rated barbecue joint in Texas: Pecan Lodge.

Whether you’re a barbecue fanatic who needs a steady supply of world-class brisket or you simply enjoy cornbread and pulled pork as much as anyone, you’d probably love Dallas’s food scene.
