There are many open houses in North Texas every weekend — so much so that picking the perfect three can be difficult. But somehow we manage and bring you an insider’s look at hot properties with our Open Houses of the Week. These are open houses in Dallas (and the ‘burbs from time to time) you shouldn’t miss! 

This week, our houses range in price from $399K to $1.349 million. Which one is your favorite? 


Contemporary architecture takes on beautiful proportions in a sleek Shore Crest Terrace home built in 2016. This nearly new house feels spacious and expansive with soaring ceilings and spaces filled with natural light.

Our Inwood Home of the Week at 8618 Glencrest Ln. has a strong connection between indoors and outdoors through walls of glass, as well as a flexible floorplan in the truest sense of the word. This naturally lends to the entertaining possibilities with multiple seating areas inside and fabulous options in back. 

Located near Lemmon Avenue and West Lovers Lane, this home has four bedrooms, four bathrooms, three living areas, and 4,002 square feet on two stories, built in 2016.

If you think Cowtown is full of milquetoast architecture, you’ve obviously never been to the annual Fort Worth AIA Home Tour. This year’s event, slated for April 7-8, features some intensely creative homes in some of Fort Worth’s most desirable neighborhoods.

Barton-Graham Strike Again with Beautiful and Bold Buckner Terrace Renovation |

We’ve been following the remarkable work of a dynamic design and real estate duo making their mark in East Dallas. Today, we’re looking at their latest project in Buckner Terrace. 

Casey Barton and Raymond Graham are the talent behind the renovated house at 3214 Sharpview Ln. This pair have been at it for several years, turning dumpy dives into delightful digs with function, flow, and fabulous style. (If you want to see what we’ve featured before, check out this house, this house, and this house.) 

“This is our third flip on the 3200 block of Sharpview, so one of our biggest challenges we faced was making it look different from the house we flipped directly across the street,” said Graham. “We definitely have a look that brands us [with elements like] painted brick, a reflective address plaque, a pop of color on the front door, midcentury elements, geometric shapes, and mixed chrome and gold throughout the house.” 

Today’s Thursday Three Hundred offers those things plus an open floorplan, original refinished and new solid oak hardwoods, and a huge master suite with a to-die-for closet — and that’s just the beginning. The house has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two living areas, two dining areas, and 1,950 square feet on one story, built in 1965. 

There’s an open house this Sunday, March 25, from 2-4 p.m. Would you like to look around beforehand?

Yes, yes, we’re doing this. Calm yourselves.

Social media is a blessing (most of the time). You can talk to your friends. You can keep track of who broke ugly after high school. You can argue with strangers about collusion.

And you can also have 100 people simultaneously send you the same home listing because they know part of your job is to find the most jacked-up houses in the world and write about them. (more…)

In the parlance of those of us in Dallas who have been huddled indoors avoiding the cold and wet winter, “Where’s the patio?”

I’ll tell you where it is —our High Caliber Home of the Week presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. It’s an incredible townhome listed by Dave Perry-Miller agents Phillip Murrell and Stewart Lee in one of the hottest parts of Oak Lawn. 

“In addition to almost 2,600 square feet of indoor space, the townhome includes a yard with access to the first floor, a large balcony adjacent to the living room, and a roof-top deck with stellar views of downtown,” Murrell said. “This is the perfect townhome for those who want to enjoy the excellent weather we’ve been having in Dallas.”

Just make sure you take your allergy medicine and you’re ready to pour some mimosas and soak up the sun and skyline!

Dear Diary,

OMG. My HOA is sooooo horrible. They’re, like, the worst ever. I mean, it’s like the mean girls of the school. I can’t even. They’re just trashing my entire experience. Like, totally! Turns out my condo isn’t warrantable. As if. And that rush fee they charged ate my swag money. Hashtag whatever.

Hey girl. I hear ya. But you might as well chillax, ’cause all HOAs (Home Owner Associations) are typically a hassle when you’re buying or selling a property. Seriously.

A property with mandatory HOA always adds another pile of paperwork to the transaction. And additional costs. Some more than others. You may be dealing with a Home Owners Association that governs the neighborhood where you live. Or you may be in a condominium under HOA management. These associations enforce restrictions, oversee common areas, supervise maintenance and repairs, … and generally ensure everyone follows the rules they’ve all agreed to.
