Wolf CreekHow hot is Wolf Creek? Let’s put it this way: We’ve been telling you for a while how hot this area is becoming, with its affordable homes zoned for some really great Dallas ISD schools — but this week we got some real proof.

You see, the home we picked for this week had multiple offers nearly immediately (it’s only been listed for eight days at this point), and a contingency offer has already been accepted.

In LESS than a week, this home at 3350 Choir Street was snapped up.

Now, a there are a lot of reasons why this home would fly off the market — one, as we mentioned, it’s in Wolf Creek. Two, it’s priced at $175,000, which makes it darn near a unicorn in Dallas, with its three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Three, it’s zoned for Ronald McNair Elementary, which was recently one of the district’s Best Schools, and will be a STEAM Innovation campus starting next year. (more…)

To some buyers, 6820 Garlinghouse looks like too much work. It’s a 1985-built ranch in Far North Dallas that is in original condition, according to Ashli Clements of Minnette Murray Properties, a boutique real estate group under Coldwell banker residential brokerage.

“It has really good bones and the floor plan works well for today’s families,” she said. “It’s totally livable right now. The seller lived in home for four years and didn’t change a thing. The breakfast nook is actually beautiful, with that gorgeous ceiling.”

But today’s buyers seem to be lacking in vision and inspiration, because at 2,565 square feet, this home is priced just right for the renovation-minded. This four-bedroom, three-bath home inside the Dallas city limits but with Plano ISD schools is being marketed for just $350,000 — a steal! Plus, buyers will receive a $10,000 allowance toward upgrades, making those Pinterest boards you’ve been carefully curating for your dream house even closer to tangible reality.
