Lochwood Estates midcentury

Our Tuesday Two Hundred is a Lochwood Estates midcentury that generated multiple offers over asking price after just four days on the market.

This East Dallas neighborhood is affordable and desirable with lush greenbelts, mature trees, lots of wildlife, and close proximity to White Rock Lake. With killer curb appeal and a cute interior, the home at 12030 Sunland St. offers atomic era style. It also has an attached two-car garage, a rarity in the area and big bonus among buyers.

“We thought of pricing it at $249K, but we decided to drop it based on comps to get attention — it helps to get as many eyeballs on it as possible that first weekend,” said listing agent Jason Castro with Keller Williams — Dallas Park Cities. “These sellers need to move quickly. When you have multiple offers it helps you negotiate a lot of terms and helps you get to close quickly without many snags in the process.”

Castro’s strategy worked. He had ten offers as of noon yesterday, and all are above asking price, except one lowball cash offer. He says he expects another five or so. How’s that for a hot property?

This home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,173 square feet on on story, built in 1961.

Irwindell

We love a great before-and-after, and our Tuesday Two Hundred tells a compelling story. This 1928 North Oak Cliff Tudor was uninhabitable until 2015, when huge renovations restored this beauty and made it into the cozy, stylish home you see today.

Located at 502 S. Westmoreland Rd. in the Irwindell neighborhood (just south of West Jefferson Boulevard), this Tudor is completely reimagined with an open concept floorplan and modern amenities buyers love, like a brand new kitchen with farm sink and open shelving. But the original character of the home shines, too, with details like glass doorknobs and restored fireplace.

“All the improvements were completed in August 2015 and made to reflect the charm and character of this late 20’s-built home in Irwindell,” said listing agent Mark Lucisano with Keller Williams—Dallas Park Cities. “This home is located one mile from Westmoreland DART station and all of the great shops and eats in Bishop Arts.”

It’s a modest footprint, with two bedrooms, one bathrooms, and 1,105 square feet, but this home packs a lot into that space and makes the most of its size. We’re impressed!
