Buckner Terrace, Dallas
It’s hard for buyers to find new construction in Dallas for under $500,000, but Perry recommends taking a look at Buckner Terrace. The neighborhood is located in East Dallas – just north of Interstate 30 with Lawnview Avenue to the west, Forney Road to the south, and Loop 12 to the east.
The area is located only about seven miles from downtown Dallas, giving you access to all of the city’s amenities and limiting the commute for those in office these days. It is also just minutes from Tenson Park Golf Course, which offers two highly sought after golf courses and a state-of-the-art training and teaching facility. The facility also includes tennis courts, pickleball courts, and a gorgeous putting green.
In newer gated communities like Tenison Village (which also features a community pool), you can get a 2,107-square-foot home with four bedrooms and four bathrooms for about $500,000. Or choose a newly updated four-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath for $460,000.
(Van Allisten, Texas).
North of the city, this small town community lies east and west of US-75, directly between McKinney and Sherman. Founded in 1873 during railroad expansion, buyers can still find acre-acre lots with new construction for under $700,000.
“For those who want a small-town feel close to sprawling DFW, this city has it all,” Perry says. “With an authentic downtown, Christmas parade, farmers markets, thriving restaurants, and a high school ranked in the top five percent of public schools in Texas, Van Allstyne is an ideal place to call home. Affordable home prices, abundant land, and location near a trail US-75 with easy access to the north and south are just a few of the reasons I recommend Van Alystyne to my clients.
Wynnewood is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Oak Cliff, covering 820 acres in the southwestern part of Dallas. The area was purchased in the 1940s by Toddie Lee Wynne Sr., and was developed and completed by Angus Wynne in 1954. The community recently had a multi-million-dollar development plan drawn up to revitalize and restore the city, which Berry expects will increase neighborhood prices. . Right now, a sprawling ranch can be purchased for $330,000 to $450,000, but don’t expect those prices to last much longer with the new investments being made in Wynnewood.
This area is full of charm with all types of homes from ranch style to mid-century modern. The quality of workmanship and variety of style are evident. The quiet, tree-lined streets are named after World War II Navy commanders such as Salerno, Eisenhower, and Bristol.
Wynwood Shopping Village is full of charm, having once been the heart of the community and one of the first open-air shopping centers in Dallas.
Hollywood/Santa Monica, Dallas
This East Dallas neighborhood, known to real estate agents as Hollywood Heights, is located below Lakewood and White Rock Lake, and just steps from the 80-acre Samuel Grand Park and Tennyson Golf Course. The neighborhood was declared a local conservation area in 1989, and is known to contain the largest collection of Tudor stone cottages in the country.
If Tudor isn’t your style, you can also find Spanish Style, Craftsman, and many other designs that are all still affordable in the $600,000 range or less.
