When it comes to life on this side of the lake, there are few neighborhoods in East Dallas that still retain much of their character like Lochwood. Located on the north east side of White Rock Lake, hugging the borders to Old Lake Highlands and the L Streets, this neighborhood is delightfully hilly, with long stretches of greenbelts that curve around creeks, huge parks, and great neighbors. And it’s no wonder that, with the still bordering on affordable real estate in this neighborhood, Millennials have been searching for the right place to claim their first home.

We’ve seen our share of flips in Lochwood, one of the few remaining somewhat affordable neighborhoods inside the loop, and though we’ve easily fallen in love with them, there’s something to be said about knowing when to stop “updating.” Need an example? Check out this cute Lochwood ranch listed by Lauri Ann Hanson and Aimee Schreiner with Dwell Partners Realty at Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate.

“Located in one of East Dallas’ best ‘under the radar’ neighborhoods, Lochwood, this three-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath, recently remodeled home is a perfect starter home,” Schreiner said. “It’s within walking distance to Lochwood Park and close proximity to White Rock Lake, so you can enjoy all that East Dallas has to offer right at your fingertips.”

What do Millennials want when they’re looking to rent? First, let’s talk about Millennials as a cultural group: It’s mostly comprised of those born between the late 70s and early 90s, who came of age during the Y2K era. Categorized as media-obsessed narcissists, this group is preceded by Generations X and Y.

The thing Millennials value the most is access, so of course an urban address is going to be more appealing. That’s why I think this three-story townhome near the Katy Trail is going to be a boon for a Millennial. This 1,230-square-foot townhome at 4051 Travis Street Unit D is offered up by Jason Lucas of LocalDwelling.com for $1,900 a month.

Millennials are also looking for a more environmentally friendly way to live, so being inside Uptown — a walkable, bikable neighborhood — and being close to Dallas’ most-used pedestrian artery — The Katy Trail — will definitely catch a Millennial’s eye. And even with a small footprint you get all the trappings, which includes two bedrooms, two and a half baths, a two-car garage, and city views.

Millennials will also love the updated kitchen with island and stainless steel appliances, as well as the fireplace, designer lighting, and gorgeous wood floors. Know a Millennial this would be perfect for? Contact LocalDwelling.com today!
