This advice from Marcus Hiles comes from his expertise in building rental communities that embody luxury living. “When renters choose to live in communities that align with their lifestyles, they achieve a greater work-life balance,” he claims. This is particularly important because a third of apartment dwellers are between the ages of 30 and 44 and in the prime of their careers. Another 30 percent are between 45 and 64 years old. Hiles’ ability to design apartments that offer resort-like amenities and maintain an enviable commute distance ensures that Dallas will continue to trend toward renting over home ownership.
