affordableEarlier this week, we mentioned the October housing report from the Texas A&M Real Estate Center, which provided this interesting tidbit: While home sales may be slowing down in the higher price points, the most affordable price points are still doing robust business.

“The market for homes priced less than $200,000 remained the exception, where the MOI held at 2.8 months with constant pressure downward,” the report said. A balanced market, economists say, is closer to six months of inventory.

So for this week’s CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week, we thought we’d take a look at this price point, and what you can get for that.

This week, our homes range in price from $155,000 to $200,000. Which ones will you visit? (more…)

Farmers BranchIt’s been a busy week, but when an adorable 1958 Contemporary bungalow hits your inbox, priced at a perfect price point for a young family — and zoned for a great feeder pattern for schools, we make the effort to give it a shout out. And that’s the case with this darling Farmers Branch home.

Kitty Gordon with Angel Realtors pointed out 3146 Myra Lane to us over the weekend. The home is close to convenient commuting, and has been remodeled with modern tastes in mind.

Gordon assured us that all the updates were fully permitted, too. At three bedrooms and two bathrooms, it’s 1,340 square feet of cozy space, with a nice big backyard that’s just screaming for a deck and pergola, and maybe even a swing set.
