When it comes to rental homes, inventory in Denton can be a little challenging with many of the university students absorbing rental stock during peak periods. The good news is that Denton is in the midst of a growth cycle that is bringing additional multi-family and single-family housing stock to the local rental market.
Denton has a decent amount of older housing stock, some of which is built on generous oversize lots that you don’t find with new construction. These attractive pieces of property and the newer housing stock coming to market have helped to push home prices higher in Denton. If you are interested in a newer, modern home somewhere in the Denton area be prepared to pay a premium relative to the older existing housing stock with similar size lots.
