Our Steal: Thani Lam with Compass has listed 725 Melba Street for $419,900.

Living in hip and trendy North Oak Cliff puts you in a prime location close to Bishop Arts and downtown Dallas. And with these two gems, you’ll never be short on space for outdoor entertaining during the summer — especially July Fourth. One has a rooftop terrace with views for catching the fireworks. The other, an expansive deck for grilling out with all your friends. The only question is which would you choose?

Our Steal: Miranda Gonzales with Keller Williams Urban Dallas has listed 13436 Forestway Drive for $455,000.

Once a rural community on Dallas’ edge, this area has turned into a hot-and-happening hood, with plenty of restaurants and retail — and acclaimed Richardson ISD schools, to boot. Yes, this week we are taking you to Northwood Hills/Valley View, where suburban tree-lined streets and large lots make the houses here feel like home. The two we’ve locked eyes with are made for summer. Plus, they’re priced to sell, too. Each comes with generous interiors and oasis-style pools but with price points that are miles apart.

Which would you choose the Midcentury Modern splurge or the Renovated Contemporary steal? Take your pick and let us know in the comments.
