  • With the new vaccine being released to the public, restrictions are being lifted in Texas. This means that more people are getting back to their everyday lives.
  • People are now choosing to relocate to Texas, specifically the DFW area. Many from out of state. The Texas population is expected to grow from 28 million to over 30 million by July 2021.
  • Fortunately, The rental/ Real-estate market has stayed pretty steady throughout the pandemic. Some would even say it is even doing better than it has in previous years. 
  • A large number of people have been relocating to rent homes or downsizing from their current rental in the previous months due to effects from the pandemic.
