As experienced Dallas real estate professionals we understand that not everyone is looking for a “forever” home, particularly millennials and other young people who are career-oriented and will likely move a number of times before they settle in for good. Regardless, some of the most established neighborhoods in the Dallas area are super popular right now – and they’re not all communities with huge, grand homes. Which Dallas neighborhoods should you consider when shopping for a home, whether permanent or not?
The Hollywood Heights/Santa Monica area is where those who don’t want the huge price tag but do want a great neighborhood with even better people is where many are flocking to. If you’re looking for a smaller home without sacrificing great schools for your children, take a look at this neighborhood that’s just south of White Rock Lake.
Kessler Park/North Oak Cliff is where you can find something you thought wasn’t possible – spacious homes without the huge price tag you’d expect. The vibe here is welcoming and relaxed; it’s a place where everybody knows your name, and neighbors often get together for backyard barbecues and fun in a place where the landscape boasts beautiful home spots, plenty of trees and where rolling hills abound. In a word, charming.
Oak Lawn, Bluffview and Preston Hollow are some of the other top neighborhoods in 2018. In fact, the price on one of our Preston Hollow properties has been reduced, a gorgeous 5,172 sq. ft. home that’s just 12 years old and boasts 14′ ceilings on the first floor along with a gourmet kitchen, custom built recording studio and much more – a must see!
In Bluffview, beautiful homes reside on what was at one time a dairy farm pasture! With a countryside feel and a population in 2016 of less than 5,000, this is a neighborhood you’ll truly fall in love with. Check out this 1950 home that’s packed with charm and character!
