What can you get for the median home price in Dallas? We took a look.

East Dallas Traditional in White Rock Hills

Realtor Beatrice Martinez said these sellers are motivated to sell this 1977 Traditional located at 3203 Lindbergh Drive.

Big kitchen, open floorplan with two living areas, big master, and even space for an office are among the highlights of this property, and it’s well below the listing price for a home this size in the area, which means you can get a lot bang for your buck, and the opportunity to stretch that budget further to make your own mark on the home.

Eighties Traditional in Highland Meadows

With two bedrooms and two baths (plus a powder room), this 1985 Traditional has a setting that is hard to be topped, especially when you consider the price point.

Backing up to a beautiful creek, the open two-story floorplan has high ceilings, tons of windows, and two large bedrooms with attached baths and big closets upstairs. Both bathrooms also have granite counters, dual vanities, and glass vessel sinks.

An updated kitchen has granite counters, tile backsplash, and stainless steel appliances, and is open to the living area.

Upstairs, the loft area provides flex space, and outside, the backyard is a retreat overlooking a creek.

Buckner Terrace Home With the MidMod Feel

This home may have been built in the seventies, and it may scream Traditional from the outside, but inside, it has a decidedly Midcentury Modern appeal, with vaulted ceilings, loads of windows, and a brick fireplace in a huge living room.

Add in the oversized kitchen with tons of cabinet space, and this four-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath home is perfect for the family looking for something in the under $300,000 range. The bathrooms have been updated, and a large master suite includes a sitting area, his and hers vanities, and large walk-in closets.

Outside, a big backyard and covered patio offer plenty of play space.

1938 Ranch in Oak Cliff’s Cedar Oaks

We’ve written about Cedar Oaks and Cedar Crest, the more affordable alternatives in Oak Cliff, before. So we weren’t shocked to find a home in this area that was priced at the median.

This 1938 Ranch-style home sits on two lots at the corner and boasts a huge backyard (so maybe a pool, or even an addition). Inside, the open-concept floorplan splits the master from the two other bedrooms.

The three-bedroom, three bath home has gotten a ton of updates, too. New HVAC, electrical, plumbing, windows, sheetrock, and insulation take care of the practical stuff, but you’ll also love the finishes chosen throughout the rest of the home as well.

Uptown Condo Next to a Park

Close to Katy Trail and Cole Park, and a trolley ride away from Klyde Warren Park, this two-bed, two bath unit located at 4111 Cole Avenue is move-in ready, and an example of what you can find in the $260,000 range Uptown.

At 1,090 square feet, you might think it would feel diminutive — but the high ceilings, windows, and ideal finish choices actually make this open floorplan home feel a lot bigger.

Carrerra marble can be found in the kitchen and bathrooms, and the kitchen also boasts stainless steel appliances. Fresh paint can be found throughout, as well as carpet in the bedrooms and wood floors in the common areas. Both bedrooms have full bathrooms en suite and walk-in closets, too.

Unit 38 is listed by Arunesh Vivek with Beam Real Estate. To see more, click here.

And the two-bedroom, two bath townhome at 10716 Park Village Place has an open floorplan that provides a spacious open floor plan, as well as great storage. The master suite boasts two walk-in closets, a sitting area, and a spacious bathroom.

The gated community offers a pool, as well as the oversight of an HOA. It’s also within walking distance of the shopping and dining options at Preston Royal.
