It’s hard for me to believe how increasingly popular Far East Dallas has become. When my husband and I bought our home in Casa View back in 2007, the area was mostly rentals and a few families scattered here and there, with a lot of homes falling behind on repairs due to elderly neighbors. In many cases, the homes we were shown by our agent fit into one of two categories: they were either complete single-owner time capsules with faded wallpaper and pock-marked Formica countertops or they were overly worn rentals with a random amalgamation of hodge-podge “updates.”

In today’s market, Far East Dallas is shining bright, with some great houses that have received love and attention over the past decade, and with many more areas farther east looking more and more attractive. That’s my impression of our Inwood National Bank Home of the Week. This Spanish Revival-style Ranch is in move-in ready shape, complete with a garage conversion and two shaded patios in the backyard. 

“The home is in immaculate condition and has a great layout,” said listing agent and broker Delia Sifuentes. And it’s priced perfectly for a family, too!
