IME, there are three main contingents (possibly four) looking at different areas first. For them one or more of the factors below may apply:
Basic apartments = sufficient
Money not quite as constricting on decision
Single-Family Neighborhood factors (this could be counted as one or two groups; two would be the difference between the Central/East Dallas (including HP) neighborhoods and the 'burbs):
Preference for small (duplex-octoplex) complexes
Older and done with apartment living
Students seeking to buy
Living with parents to save
BVest has it pretty clearly laid out although if you want to pay uptown prices without the benefits of nightlife there are a few new places in the village area that might appeal to you - the Standard, Upper East Side in the Village and landamark on Lovers to name a few.
East dallas/lakewood/m streets/lower greenville get my vote for the best part of dallas but well-priced places go very fast so if you're not in town I don't know how successful you would be in getting a place
As an example- this is a very classic lower greenville apartment, well-priced and if the photos aren't lying I would assume it will be gone within a week or two max - [url]http://dallas.craigslist.org/dal/apa/4963768847.html[/url]
