Cedar CrestDays on market for move-in ready homes in the $100,000 to $200,000 range around North Texas are tiny little pockets of time, blink-and-you’ll-miss-them openings. So when this Cedar Crest cutie landed in our inbox this week, we knew it was our next Weekend One Hundred.

You’re going to want to make time to visit the three houses we’ve found for our CandysDirt.com Open Houses of the Week column, which range from $439,000 to $1,095,000.
