DALLAS-FORT WORTH - While apartment completions in DFW have surged, the vacancy rate has retreated to its lowest level on record since 2001, according to Marcus & Millichap's Fourth Quarter 2014 ApartmentResearch Market Report.

This tightening in the market can be attributed to strong job creation and nation-leading net migration and household formation driving renter demand to new heights.

During the past 12 months, the multifamily sector recorded a 46 percent increase in permits issued to approximately 19,540 units.

Builders will deliver 18,200 apartments to the Metroplex this year. The forecast reflects a 40 percent increase from 2013 and the most sizable annual addition since 2000.

Here are the top five submarkets ranked by vacancy rate:

Submarket Vacancy Ranking
Submarket Vacancy
Rockwall/Rowlett/Wylie 2.7% $1,121 5.3%
Richardson 3.6% $1,080 4.4%
Garland 3.6% $778 5.1%
Far North Dallas 3.7% $838 5.0%
Northwest Dallas 4.1% $803 6.8%
