Affordable homes continue to be listed in the Dallas area in the wake of the devastating tornadoes late last month, as residents ranging from apartment-dwellers to estate-owners look to find temporary or semi-permanent housing.

The four-bedroom pad at 3031 South Marsalis Ave. is recently renovated and ready for immediate move-in, according to listing agent Alicia Toney. It’s a short hop to Interstate 35 East. Oh, yeah, and it’s $179,000.

The 1938-built home is a little on the small side at 1,651 square feet, so it’d be best suited for a couple or small family. And in full disclosure, it’s in a part of town near Five Mile Creek and Oak Cliff that gets a C ranking in crime and safety from niche.com.

What We Like

The price is unbeatable. It’s a great option for a family displaced by the storms. It has some stellar features, including updated kitchen, updated flooring, walk-in closets and an extra storage room (which could be a small office) in the master.

It’s ready now, which certainly beats spending Thanksgiving and Christmas in a hotel.

It’s worth scheduling a walk-through, because, as Toney points out, one must see it to appreciate it. There’s a second living area upstairs with a half bath, and the kitchen has a walk-in pantry. The yard is landscaped, and parking is secure in a two-car carport.

The home is centrally located near several schools and grocery stores.

Welcome To The Neighborhood

As schools recover from storm damage, make sure to check with Dallas ISD to ensure students are being sent to the proper locations.

The listing shows that students in this area attend Clinton P. Russell Elementary School, Boude Storey Middle School, and South Oak Cliff High School, all of which have B, C, and D ratings from txschools.gov.

The Marsalis home is located in the Freemont neighborhood, close to Oak Cliff. The area is rich in history and diversity – and it’s not too far from some of the cool spots in the Bishop Arts District, like Dallas Grilled Cheese Co., Stock and Barrel, and Lockhart Smokehouse.

Oh yeah, and it’s $179,000.

Realtor Alicia Toney is listing 3031 S. Marsalis Ave., Dallas, for $179,000.
