Good rentals are hard to find, but this gem in the Hollywood Heights will suit your needs and leave a little room in your pocketbook to decorate for the holidays.

The two-bedroom, one-bathroom abode at 6914 San Mateo Blvd. sits on “a beautiful tree-lined street, close to the park, with a large backyard,” according to Marie Euseppi. She’s leasing the home for $1,800 a month. (more…)

A glass house in the woods sounds like the kind of place where dreams come true.

The two-bedroom, two-bathroom Dallas home at 2636 Gladiolus Lane could be the place where a novel is finished. It could be the site of a reception for a young, up-and-coming artist. It could definitely be a scary movie set – or a romantic comedy, if that’s more your taste. It already has been the site where a patented six-suit deck of cards was created and a real estate business was launched. (more…)

LakewoodIf you’ve got your heart set, say, on raising your family in the Woodrow High School feeder pattern, starting in Lakewood Elementary, but need a little breathing room while you look for your forever home in the boundaries, we’ve found a great Rental of the Week that just might do the trick.

We say might, because as much as we like the layout and are in favor of everything in the description, the photos make it uh, hard to actually see all the great updates talked about in the listing description.

Realtors, good photography is worth its weight in gold, but doesn’t cost nearly that. In fact, in the 2017 National Association of Realtors Profile of Home Buyers & Sellers, 89 percent of those surveyed said that when they hopped online to search for a home, they found photos to be the most useful feature of the site they visited.

So basically, everyone who looks at homes online would like you to use photos that are useful.  (more…)

Sometimes it pays to pay attention to Facebook yard sale groups — because our Rental of the Week today is a Midcentury Bungalow that came straight from one, after its owner let the group know that she was getting ready to list her Midway Hollow rental.

Robin Barrow’s two-bedroom, one bath home is at 3955 Durango Drive, and is a perfect example of what a well-maintained rental can look like, and what a well-maintained post-war home should feel like.

And it should — it was once her own home. Outside, the curb appeal on the brick bungalow gets an assist from mature trees and spruced up flower beds.  (more…)

ElmwoodWe’ve written a lot about Elmwood — a great Oak Cliff neighborhood that’s having a bit of a resurgence thanks in part to its proximity to Bishop Arts District and its own small business district.

And despite the popularity of BAD, Elmwood is quite the force in and of itself, with about 1,373 houses and 4,426 residents, making it the most populated single-family home neighborhood in Oak Cliff.

Not ready to buy? That’s quite all right — we’ve found this adorable Elmwood Cottage that has been well-maintained and updated — the ordinary rental it is not. (more…)
