Claremont Park | East Dallas Home for Sale | CandysDirt.com

East Dallas real estate can be pricey. Neighborhoods like Lakewood and Forest Hills almost never have homes in the $200K price range. But Claremont Park, an established East Dallas neighborhood with winding creeks, arching shade trees, and close proximity to White Rock Lake, is often quite affordable. 

Our Tuesday Two Hundred is located at 8331 Cabrera Dr. in the heart of Claremont Park, near Ferguson Road and Lakeland Drive. It’s newly listed and priced to sell, with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,674 square feet, built in 1959. 

Its pink-brick exterior gives a hint of the style found inside — this home has been beautifully maintained and updated to offer some big buyer “wants.” The overall feel is welcoming, comfortable, and stylish.

Midway Hollow home

Midway Hollow is a neighborhood in transition, with a lot of renovations going on among the 2,600 or so houses there. It’s an appealing area in northwest Dallas, with mature trees, affordable homes in several price ranges, nearby shopping, and a healthy, involved crime watch.

Flippers have made their mark among many a Midway Hollow home, and some people are wary of the quality of work offered by them. That may or may not have any basis, but it still causes pause among a few potential homebuyers.

Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred at 3703 Cortez Dr. is not a flip — this beautiful work was done by the owner for herself, says listing agent Barbara Arredondo with Clay Stapp + Co. 

“This is such a neat house — it was taken to the studs for a renovation and it sits on a larger corner lot,” Arredondo said. “All of the bedrooms are a big surprise — usually in a home of this era, they are small, but these are not.”

This home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,044 square feet, built in 1951. There’s an open house this Saturday, May 27, from 2-4 p.m. Here’s your sneak peek. (Be sure to check out the “before” photos below for a look at the hot mess this house was before the owner started renovations!)

Elmwood cottage

A friend of mine is looking to buy a house in the under-$300K range in Dallas and it is proving to be incredibly difficult and frustrating. In her experience, homes in that range go under contract lightning fast and almost always for over asking price. Sometimes there’s even a cash offer as competition.

I’ve had the same realization writing this Tuesday Two Hundred column for the last few years. I’ll find a property over the weekend and by Monday, it’s got an active open contract. The prettier the place, the bigger the interest.

So I’m predicting huge activity around today’s Tuesday Two Hundred at 1603 Homewood Pl. The midcentury design elements and cute curb appeal of this Elmwood cottage will have buyers speed-dialing their Realtor for a showing. From the red brick and turquoise front door to the light-filled and renovated interior, it hits all the “must haves” and a lot of the “would be nice,” too.

This home has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,236 square feet on one story, built in 1954. Let’s take a look!

Lochwood Estates midcentury

Our Tuesday Two Hundred is a Lochwood Estates midcentury that generated multiple offers over asking price after just four days on the market.

This East Dallas neighborhood is affordable and desirable with lush greenbelts, mature trees, lots of wildlife, and close proximity to White Rock Lake. With killer curb appeal and a cute interior, the home at 12030 Sunland St. offers atomic era style. It also has an attached two-car garage, a rarity in the area and big bonus among buyers.

“We thought of pricing it at $249K, but we decided to drop it based on comps to get attention — it helps to get as many eyeballs on it as possible that first weekend,” said listing agent Jason Castro with Keller Williams — Dallas Park Cities. “These sellers need to move quickly. When you have multiple offers it helps you negotiate a lot of terms and helps you get to close quickly without many snags in the process.”

Castro’s strategy worked. He had ten offers as of noon yesterday, and all are above asking price, except one lowball cash offer. He says he expects another five or so. How’s that for a hot property?

This home has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,173 square feet on on story, built in 1961.
