Dallas is a great city for young professionals. But which neighborhoods are best for them to live in? According to Niche.com, here are the best neighborhoods for young professionals in Dallas.
#5 Deep Ellum
Deep Ellum is adjacent to downtown and is known for its vibrant street murals, quirky art galleries, and long-time concert venues for indie music. Most people (77%) rent here and pay a median rent of $1,287 and the median home value is $265K.
Deep Ellum was established in 1873 in an area east of downtown Dallas as a residential and commercial neighborhood. It was one of Dallas’ first residential districts for African-Americans and European immigrants and is one of the most historically significant neighborhoods in the city. In 1914, Henry Ford selected this neighborhood to be one of the factories building his famous Model T cars. Besides initially being industrial, Deep Ellum’s main claim to fame has always been its music and art. Today, Deep Ellum’s former factories have been converted to trendy apartments, condos, shops, and restaurants.
#4 Lower Greenville
Though still better known as an entertainment district featuring many of Dallas’ best bars and restaurants, Lower Greenville has recently cleaned up this reputation to become a community of residents committed to making their neighborhood even better. The neighborhood has lots of restaurants, coffee shops, and parks. The big annual event in Lower Greenville is its St. Patrick’s Day parade, which is one of the best not to miss events in Dallas each year.
The median rent in Lower Greenville is a reasonable $1,350 and the median home value is about $400K.

Rent here is about $1,470 per month and the median home value is $280K, which isn’t bad.
