A recent Realtor.com report found that the 75205 zip code (which is Park Cities, including parts of University Park and Highland Park) is the most expensive zip code in the entire state of Texas. With a median list price of $1,623,790, some of the most expensive homes on the market right now are in this zip code. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get into this zip code for under a million. It’s true! These three picks for CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week prove there’s still room in the market for the million and under homeowner.

Townhouse Living That Feels Like Town & Country

This is a warm and rich-feeling two bedroom, two-and-half bath townhome at 3418 McFarlin Blvd., Apt C. (P.S., Apt D is also on the market) is located just a block from SMU and walking distance from Snider Plaza. It’s listed for $539,900 by Kelli Macatee with Allie Beth Allman and Associates. This 2003-built condo has spacious rooms, hardwood floors, great storage space, and a private fenced patio large enough for pets. Plus, a two-car attached garage with additional storage, which makes this an attractive property for downsizers.

Woodrow

All three of our homes in this week’s roundup of open houses are in the Woodrow Wilson feeder pattern, including 5939 Velasco Ave., listed by Briana Hill with Rogers Healy and Associates.

It’s not uncommon to hear that house hunters in Dallas are looking for homes in the Woodrow Wilson High School feeder pattern — it’s known for its academics, it’s fine arts programs, and its athletics, as well as its strong alumni and parent presence.

Suffice to say, if you’ve never checked out Woodrow Wilson High, you owe it to yourself to investigate, because there are tons of reasons it’s one of the most sought-after public high schools.

Every Thursday, we bring you our pick of the hottest North Texas properties in our CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week. These are the places you don’t want to miss that weekend. And this week, our homes all have one Dallas ISD feeder pattern in common — the Woodrow Wilson High School feeder pattern.

North Fort WorthThis week’s collection of open houses began when a reader submitted an open house in a corner of North Texas we haven’t gotten to really look at closely — the communities and small towns around north Fort Worth and Alliance Airport.

Some these homes have north Fort Worth mailing addresses, but are physically in other cities — like Roanoke. But the common thread among all of them is incredible deals with lots of house for your dollar.

HistoricNot every historic home in Dallas meets the wrecking ball — some are lovingly cared for, carefully updated, and enjoying third, fourth, and even fifth lives as new generations of Dallasites back up the moving truck and begin their lives there.

This week, we’d like to show you three open houses, all homes that are at least 75 years old or more, all updated and move in ready for their next family.

pitchesAs we’ve mentioned before, every week we solicit pitches for our various featured listing posts, including our weekly roundup of open houses.

You can tag us on Instagram, or even better, you can join our Facebook group, Getting the Dirt.  It’s a great place to virtually mingle with fellow professionals, ask questions, lend a hand, and, yes, pitch stories to CandysDirt.com writers. Not a Realtor? It’s a great place to get a first glimpse at some of the most recent listings all over North Texas, too.

Take, for instance, this week’s properties featured in our CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week. We have four incredible properties this week — consider it our usual three and a bonus house, if you will.
