If you think it’s too early to talk about moving before next school year, might I remind you that the school year starts on Aug. 15 in Richardson ISD, which, according to my calculations, is about a month away? We’ve been on the lookout for great, move-in ready homes for families relocating to Dallas before school starts in the fall, and this listing from David Griffin and Co. Realtor Robert Kucharski really stood out. While it’s technically under contract, nothing’s certain until the ink dries at closing.

Plus, who doesn’t want to find out what you can get inside the coveted White Rock Elementary attendance area, for less than $500K, natch? 

You’ll see why this home is easily worthy of our High Caliber Home of the Week title presented by Lisa Peters of Caliber Home Loans. Ready to put your own family-friendly dream house under contract before school starts? Contact Lisa today!

As Kucharski points out, this White Rock Villas listing just off of Goforth near Flag Pole Hill is “pristine.” It’s well maintained and offers move-in ready interiors and plenty of charm. Plus, there’s room for the whole family!

Be prepared for the loud cheering that will come from every car departing carpool lanes on Aug. 26 as parents throughout North Texas celebrate the first day of school. No more hearing “I’m bored!” every five seconds! No more shuttling to camps! No more packing and unpacking trunks! And of course, think of all you’ll get done during the day without a kid dragging their feet behind you!

And even though you have boxes of No. 2 pencils, Kleenex, and construction paper, no kid is really ready for school without a quiet place to do the mountains of homework they’ll be bringing home.
