If you’re looking for a fixer-upper, an investment property, or a place to call home on a budget, this three-bedroom abode in Dallas’ Redbird neighborhood may be for you.

At first glance, you can see this home located near Cockrell Hill and I-20 could use some “green thumb” love with landscaping and pruning of that one tree that obscures the front door. But don’t let that deter you because this home has a great price. At $189,000, there should be some cash left over to make a few upgrades.

Give A Little Love

Built in 1986, it’s not exactly a historic artifact, but it’s seen some life and had several owners pass through its hallways.

The interior looks updated and comfortable, with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a breakfast room, utility room, and a media room. There’s been some talk in recent years about whether media rooms are impressive anymore – and I say yes! What better way to make the kids sit down and watch a movie with the family or play Fortnite together in the same room? It’s the small things, people.

The home on Meadow Trail also has a few upgrades, including a master bathroom remodel and updated laminate wood floors throughout.

This cozy little cottage sits on a 7,841-square-foot lot, so there’s plenty of backyard to enjoy.

Cruise Control

Let’s talk about the Redbird community. The south Dallas neighborhood is situated south of Oak Cliff and north of Duncanville with quick access to Loop 12, Highway 67, and Interstates 20 and 408. Plus, it’s located near Redbird Executive Airport, The Potter’s House of Dallas, the Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetary, and Dallas Baptist University.

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum and Lone Star Park are both just a few miles away, and the International Museum of Cultures is also in the neighborhood.

You’re still in the Big D, a huge city with a lot to offer. Dallas ISD offers some of the best campuses in the state, and there’s no shortage of sporting events and entertainment options.
