loveAs we’ve mentioned before, every week we solicit pitches for our various featured listing posts, including our weekly roundup of open houses – and we love what you send us.

You can tag us on Instagram, or even better, you can join our Facebook group, Getting the Dirt.  It’s a great place to virtually mingle with fellow professionals, ask questions, lend a hand, and, yes, pitch stories to CandysDirt.com writers. Not a Realtor? It’s a great place to get a first glimpse at some of the most recent listings all over North Texas, too.

Take, for instance, this week’s properties featured in our CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week. We have three incredible properties this week — and one of them has even taken pains to help you out with your Valentine’s Day needs.

North Fort WorthThis week’s collection of open houses began when a reader submitted an open house in a corner of North Texas we haven’t gotten to really look at closely — the communities and small towns around north Fort Worth and Alliance Airport.

Some these homes have north Fort Worth mailing addresses, but are physically in other cities — like Roanoke. But the common thread among all of them is incredible deals with lots of house for your dollar.

Every Thursday, we bring you our pick of the hottest North Texas properties in our CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week. Which one will you choose? (more…)

HistoricNot every historic home in Dallas meets the wrecking ball — some are lovingly cared for, carefully updated, and enjoying third, fourth, and even fifth lives as new generations of Dallasites back up the moving truck and begin their lives there.

This week, we’d like to show you three open houses, all homes that are at least 75 years old or more, all updated and move in ready for their next family.
