Wolf creekFor this week’s Weekend One Hundred, we found ourselves back in Wolf Creek, where families are finding a still affordable pocket of Dallas — but possibly not for long.

You see, the post-war cottage we found for this week already has multiple offers. We found it last weekend, bookmarked it, and 10 days later, the sellers were entertaining several offers.

Why? We’ve written about Wolf Creek before — it is a great place to get the square footage you want, but at a price point that you can’t find often in other pockets of Dallas. You can find homes under that increasingly dear $250,000 range, and most if not all in this range are updated and renovated, and some even have additional amenities like pools or workshop space.

And just taking a gander at the area’s NextDoor page, it’s interesting to see how those who call Wolf Creek home describe the best things about their neighborhood — with words like, “peaceful,” “dog-friendly,” “family-friendly,” and “clean.”

Interest is probably further enhanced by the fact that it’s close to Red Bird Mall, which is now the focus of a revitalization project dubbed Red Bird Reimagined, where a decaying mall and adjacent properties are being transformed and well, reimagined. (more…)

Wolf CreekJust seven minutes or so from what is becoming a hot area thanks to revitalization efforts, our Tuesday Two Hundred this week takes us back to Wolf Creek.

We’ve talked about Wolf Creek before — it’s a great neighborhood full of ranch-style and 80s era soft contemporary homes that are well-maintained, affordable, and are being renovated and updated beautifully.

Wolf Creek is a great place to get the square footage you want, but at a price point that you can’t find often in other pockets of Dallas. Many homes, such as this week’s home, are priced in an increasingly dear $200,000 to $250,000 range. Most if not all in this range are updated and renovated, and some even have additional amenities like pools or workshop space.

There are only 16 houses currently in inventory, and several of them already have pending or contingent offers.

And just taking a gander at the area’s NextDoor page, it’s interesting to see how those who call Wolf Creek home describe the best things about their neighborhood — with words like, “peaceful,” “dog-friendly,” “family-friendly,” and “clean.”

And in the case of 1007 Golden Trophy Drive, you can also add, “incredibly close to future amenities,” because it’s roughly seven minutes or so away from Red Bird Mall, which is now the focus of a revitalization project dubbed Red Bird Reimagined, where a decaying mall and adjacent properties are being transformed and well, reimagined.
