This past summer, there was all kinds of excitement anticipating the move Lebron James would make.

This past summer, there was all kinds of excitement anticipating the move Lebron James would make. When James decided to leave his beloved Cleveland Cavaliers, his hometown team, to find greener pastures elsewhere, not only were basketball coaches, management, and fans pleading with Lebron to consider their team of choice, but many large cities were also vying for his. From New York to Chicago to Miami, mayors were doing everything but giving their left arm for a shot at arguably what will be the greatest player of all time to choose to live in their city. President Barack Obama also threw in his preference before Lebron announced his decision to join the Miami Heat. Dallas was not one of those cities that were looking for The King to relocate to their city. The Dallas Mavericks were not in the market for a power forward. It was not, by any stretch of the imagination, because Dallas area apartments aren’t suited for a king. Dallas apartments offer many amenities that make apartment living easy and convenient.
Lebron needs to stay in shape all year round, walking and jogging trails can be both exhilarating and a great getaway from the tedium of a gym or fitness center. In addition, for the renters that are also pet owners, these walking and / or jogging trails provide a great on-site dog park for your four-legged friend to enjoy. Just be sure that you take care of any “accidents” so that others can enjoy the trails as well.
Many apartments in Dallas come equipped with a clubhouse that can be utilized for residents that want to host a party or other event. Party like King James with Pool tables, flat-screen televisions, and other cool games and electronics in these community clubhouses. Comfortable seating and full kitchens are also included to accommodate larger parties and game-watching get-togethers. So you may not be the greatest thing to happen to the NBA, but you can have your friends over to watch Lebron in his Miami Heat debut.
For the young professional, having a conveniently located fully working office is also a big plus. Lebron founded his own company LeBron Inc, his business takes equity with the companies he does business with. If you want to do business like Lebron does, these business centers typically have computers with high-speed internet connections, fax machines, printers and / or copiers, and telephones. They are perfect if you need to conduct some last minute business, are having personal computer issues, or need to host a small meeting.
Many apartment complexes in Dallas have either detached or attached garages for an additional fee to renters. For renters that want to protect their vehicle, have safety concerns about parking in a garage or parking lot, or want to have some extra storage, these garages can come in very handy. Of course you may not be able to buy and house as many cars as Lebron James.
Washers / Dryers
Washers and dryers in the apartment unit can save the renter not only time by eliminating the weekly trips to the Laundromat in order to complete this chore, but also the effort of doing so. Do you think King James would do his own laundry at a shared laundry room or at a laundromat?
When looking for a new place, check out communities that supply washers and dryers in the apartment, or at least provide the connections. Now you can do your laundry at home in peace while you’re watching basketball or wasting time on Twitter or Facebook. Having the laundry in the home also keeps you from worrying about whether or not your clothes will be bothered when using the common laundry room of the apartment complex.
You might not be able to find every amenity available at every property. However, the Dallas apartment market has lots to offer renters and if you made a priority list of your top preferences among amenities, there are sure to be several communities that would meet your needs.
