When looking for a good pick for Tuesday $300k, I’m challenged to spot something unique or interesting for our readers. You all are perfectly capable of using Google to find a home in your price range and even scheduling a private tour to check it out.

This home is special for a few reasons. It’s affordable but it has cool stuff. And it’s in a great location so you can avoid big-city traffic but also live in a nice neighborhood with access to good schools, and grocery stores.

Richardson is an upscale Dallas suburb, home to the University of Texas at Dallas and the Telecom Corridor. Jobs abound, with companies such as AT&T, Verizon, Cisco Systems, Samsung, Texas Instruments, and more.

The majority of the city is in Dallas County, but a portion also stretches into Collin County.

Richardson ISD has a good reputation and a solid B rating from Txschools.gov. There’s also a rich history in Richardson real estate.

Nestled in the Richland Park neighborhood, the home has a horizontal layout and covers 2,368 square feet.

While the façade may not be brand-spanking new, the roof is, and it comes with transferrable-warranty 30-year General Aniline & Film lifetime shingles.

The home is close to a walking trail, playground, and tennis courts – and there’s direct access to U.S. 75 and Interstate 635. Kroger, Costco, and plenty of restaurants are also in your ’hood.

So, I think we’ve reached a conclusion. Save your money on the mortgage. Get yourself into this affordable home, and splurge on the glass refrigerator.
