Dallas developer and entrepreneur Marcus Hiles is an established “subject matter expert” when it comes to discussing the need for rental communities across Texan metro centers. The latest U.S. Census Bureau figures highlight patterns of massive growth, with Lone Star State adding 1,183 residents every 24 hours throughout 2016. In one year, 432,957 new residents moved in, and the state’s housing infrastructure is failing to keep up. Only 30,000 units were delivered last year, revealing a massive shortage of available housing and leaving approximately 402,957 residents in a frenzy for a place to call home. That is, unless they have secured a spot within one of the recently completed developments in the state, such as Hiles’ Western Rim developments, near the state’s biggest cities.
