All eyes are on Elmwood, it seems, as investors make big waves in this historic Oak Cliff neighborhood. 

Our Thursday Three Hundred at 2210 Melbourne Ave. is an example of a flip done right in Elmwood, with sleek style and attention to every detail. The renovation is by Eligra LLC, a husband-and-wife team of Michael and Victoria Jones, and we’ve admired their work before

In this house, they’ve opened up the floorplan with clean lines of sight and a long list of updates. Those include a new 30-year roof, plumbing, electrical, HVAC, low-E windows, water heater, Elfa closet systems, and new insulation in interior walls, exterior walls, and in the attic.

This kind of attention to detail and quality of improvements is normal for renovation by the couple, said listing agent Adam Murphy with Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. 

“Every single flip is extraordinary and they pay incredible attention to detail, like moving the wall back six inches to put in a full-size refrigerator and giving homebuyers a big binder with every single manual and thing they’ve done, from a light fixture to a garage door opener,” Murphy said. “There’s not something comparable on the market in Oak Cliff that is in this price range.”

This home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,644 square feet on one story, built in 1952. There’s an open house Friday from 5-7 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 2-4 p.m.. Want a sneak peek?

As the year comes to a close, more and more agents are poising themselves for the months ahead, forging new partnerships or finding brokerages that are a better fit for their personal brand.

Moving brokerages is no small task, and for some, it’s strategic. For others, it’s a reaction to changing tides:

Elmwood Home

Historic, vintage appeal meets modern, hip style in our Tuesday Two Hundred, a 1935 Elmwood home in Oak Cliff.

Located at 1230 Elmwood Blvd., the renovations to this sweet spot create an upgraded, high-tech home with personality galore. The renovations are well above what you’d expect to find in a home under $300K. For example, a home automation system works in concert with smart light switches throughout the home, Amazon Echo, Nest thermostat, garage door, and smoke/carbon dioxide detectors. Another high-end splurge: quartz countertops in the kitchen, bathrooms, and bar area.

This home has two bedrooms, two living areas, one full bathroom, one half bath, and 1,616 square feet on two stories, located nearW. Clarendon Drive and S. Edgefield Avenue. It just listed New Year’s Day, so let’s take a look before some lucky buyer swoops in and makes an offer.
