Splurge vs. Steal: Two Walnut Hill Park Beauties | CandysDirt.com

Northwest Dallas is full of neighborhoods in transition, with custom homebuilders creating incredible new builds among the more traditional midcentury ranch-style homes. It creates an interesting dynamic.

You’ll find huge diversity in styles. So let’s take a look at a high-low comparison of what’s available in Walnut Hill Park.

The problem with living on the Katy Trail is that, as Jon Anderson pointed out, so many other people want to live there, too. That’s why there are so many high-rise buildings in planning phases that will line this popular city amenity. Of course, with all of those new buildings, and all of the demand, prices are going to get higher, too. So if you want to get into this area for a reasonable price, Brandon Travelstead of Dallas City Center Realtors has a great unit inside the Lofts at the Katy Trail — the only one with an attached garage — and it’s priced under a half million.

New Lakewood Contemporary | CandysDirt.com

The new Lakewood contemporary at 6967 Kenwood Ave. is one of our three featured open houses this week.

Land value near White Rock Lake, especially on the southeast side, has skyrocketed in value in recent years. So much so that lots of older homes are being torn down to make way for new construction.

The new Lakewood contemporary that tops our Dallas open houses roundup is an example of that trend. This house is one of three we’re looking at today, which range in price from $339K to $1.299 million.

Never before have I seen a Hollywood Heights Tudor hit the market that was so ripe for remodel. This home, perfectly situated in the neighborhood, was built in 1926 and has many original features. Already, renovation-minded buyers have their ears perked up. The benefit of having a mostly original home is that there hasn’t been a hodge-podge of dated work done — it’s a clean slate and ready for your vision.  While it certainly has potential for renovations, you can move right in and do them at your own pace. And the price is definitely right.

Kelly-Nolan-7255v1 copy

Long-time Dallas real estate agent Kelly Nolan has joined Dallas City Center Realtors as Director. With over 20 years in the business, Nolan spent 15 year with Ebby Halliday before taking an 18-month sabbatical in Napa Valley. Rested and recharged, she returned to real estate, this time turning her focus to the commercial side. Now she’s applying her extensive experience to overseeing operations at the brokerage. We caught up with Nolan, who, nearly a month into her new gig, says she feels like she’s already been there forever. In a good way.

“I feel so fortunate,” she said. “I walked into a wonderful situation. They’ve embraced me. They’re excited about the future we have here at Dallas City Center. It already feels like I’ve worked here for a long time. It’s just gone very comfortably.”
