If you’ve lived in Dallas-Fort Worth for any length of time, you know that shortly after Thanksgiving Day — whether it’s 80 degrees or 20 — it’s a time-honored tradition to check out the Christmas light displays in nearby neighborhoods.

But do you ever have FOMO on your expeditions? Perhaps you worry that as much as you love the regular haunts you cruise through during the holidays, there might be new displays to check out, too. Or maybe you’re pretty new to the area and have no idea where exactly to go.

Thanks to CandysDirt.com and sponsor Christine McKenny of Allie Beth Allman & Associates, you can FOMO no more – because we’ve created this handy map of key spots to check out Christmas lights. (more…)

Splurge vs. Steal: Two Vickery Place Craftsman-style Houses | CandysDirt.com

Buyers love historic Dallas neighborhoods. Case in point: Vickery Place. This conservation district, first platted in 1911, offers an abundance of reasons to feel giddy about it. 

For its convenient location near Central Expressway and Henderson Avenue and a pleasing assortment of architectural styles, Vickery Place is in demand. Real estate prices reflect that: it’s hard to walk out of a deal here for under half a million bucks. And if you do find that rare listing, it’s often a teardown to make way for the many new-builds cropping up. 

In today’s Splurge vs. Steal, we’re looking at two Vickery Place Craftsman-style houses, one old and one newer. One is positively palatial — the biggest in the neighborhood, in fact — the other more modest. They each sing their siren song for the right buyer. Which is your favorite?
