GetMedia-1The East Dallas housing market is booming. Builders lay in wait for anything resembling a tear down, and existing homes are being renovated at a dizzying pace. It’s extremely hard to nab an original house that’s been beautifully updated, but we’ve found one for you at 6813 Clayton.

It’s an adorable 2,244-square-foot traditional Gastonwood Tudor that is truly move-in ready.

The stunning University Park Tudor at 3325 Rankin St. is a thing of beauty, and it’s one of our five featured open houses this week.

That’s why we love open houses, and our CandysDirt Open Houses of the Week column was created to bring you an insider’s take on properties you don’t want to miss.

This week, our houses range in price from $389,999 to $1.025 million, and the selection is truly outstanding.
