When Svetlana Grujic of Compass alerted us to this beautiful bargain in Dallas’ hot East Village, we couldn’t wait to share it!

“This is the last Conrad home in the low $500K range,” she says. “Everything else they are building is $650-plus just down the street.” And Svetlana is right. She tells us that 90 percent of the lots on Manett Street are new construction that will be completed by the end of the year, and all of them are in high $600,000 range.

So what makes this one special or unique?

Svetlana says, “No HOA and a big yard are a rare find in Uptown or East Village. The location makes land too expensive for single-family homes. But this one has it all – location, no HOA, open floor plan, only two stories, big yard for pets or a hot tub, and room for grilling or chilling.”

Mount Auburn

Gentrification is washing over Dallas like a wave. Neighborhoods that were once working class and affordable are vanishing faster than you can say “tear down.” One such neighborhood is directly behind me, so it has hit home (literally) in a big way. I have lived on Valencia Street in Hollywood Heights since 1990 and the Mount Auburn neighborhood starts at my back fence, and it’s changing by leaps and bounds.
