While numerous powerful advantages of living a lavish city life exist, Dallas property developer and entrepreneur Marcus Hiles warns home seekers to be mindful of potential downsides, as “people who are determined to rent apartments in the urban jungle are not aware of various stresses not experienced by those who live in the suburbs.” Marcus Hiles advises renters should look beyond the city of Dallas itself – which has a population density of over 2,700 people per square mile – to find apartments and townhomes in neighborhoods with less density, lower crime rates, highly rated schools, and room to breathe.
Studies have found a distinct connection between individuals’ environment and their well-being. People who live in suburban or exurban neighborhoods are more satisfied with their lives than those who live in urban areas with higher population density. Decreased noise levels, better air quality, and other environmental amenities also increase contentment. These findings reinforce Marcus Hiles’ choices in selecting premium locations and building suburban communities that foster residents’ happiness and welfare, highlighting outdoor fireplaces, lounges, and fitness equipment. Tranquil ponds, walking and jogging trails, on-site spas, and easy golf course access deliver a retreat-like environment to residents. Indoors, sound-absorbing insulation reduces noise to a whisper, spacious living areas provide ample room to entertain, and eco-friendly appliances and building techniques lower utility bills. Hiles believes prospective tenants should look beyond Dallas’ city limits.
