Perfect For Downsizers

It’s perfect for anyone looking for a change, or metamorphosis, so to speak. Just ask listing agent Ric Shanahan with Keller Williams Urban Dallas. He says it’s perfect for “Downsizers who want a home in an established neighborhood. It’s close to the Dart Red Line at Tyler-Vernon and Tyler Station, and only one-and-a-half miles to Bishop Arts and five miles to Downtown.”

Richardson Heights

Certain neighborhoods tend to pop up frequently for CandysDirt’s Thursday Three Hundred round-up: northeast Dallas, Lake Highlands, and Richardson. But since I took the reins of this weekly feature a few months ago, I’d forgotten just how special the mid-century homes were in the popular Richardson Heights neighborhood near Arapaho and Floyd Road until a reader alerted us to his home new on the market. The 1961-built home at 629 Stardust Lane is a darling three bedroom, two bath, and one half-bath gem with 2,047 square feet. It’s listed for $375,000 by Ric Shanahan of Keller Williams Urban Dallas.

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…)

kessler plazaKessler Plaza is the southernmost “Kessler” neighborhood in North Oak Cliff. This lovely area offers homes in a broad range of architectural styles, from eclectic Tudor and colonial revival to 1950’s ranches.

Development began here in the late 1930s, and the wide, curving streets, arching shade trees, and big green yards give the area an amicable, happy feel. Kessler Plaza has a lower profile than its popular sisters to the north, but offers many desirable properties, like today’s Tuesday Two Hundred.

The house at 2606 Marvin Ave. is a 2-1 with 1,265 square feet, built in 1940, located near Jefferson and Hampton. This lovely traditional retains original details, married beautifully to updates that make the home move-in ready. It was listed Nov. 4 by Ric Shanahan with Keller Williams, Turtle Creek for $245,000, and reduced on the 19th to $239,900.
