All across Dallas-Fort Worth, new and once-new neighborhoods are gaining in popularity among homeowners looking for great values, walkability, green space and more. Expert agents from Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty discuss which neighborhoods are hot right now.
“All of the close-in neighborhoods have had resurgence. We even have homebuilders returning to the Park Cities and East Dallas to keep up with the demand. New luxury options, from single-family to townhomes, are drawing buyers to Uptown, Oak Lawn and Turtle Creek. And as areas such as Oak Cliff experience an exciting renaissance, more Dallas residents are going to look at close-in neighborhoods so they can be part of the action, too.”
“I really like Greenway Crest, a very small neighborhood near the Park Cities. It’s a nice, close-in pocket of homes with lovely three-bedroom, two-bath homes. The yards provide the green space that everyone wants right now, and the neighborhood is filled with towering trees. And it’s a great location. I’m still partial to the Midway Hollow neighborhood for starter homes. Again, it has nice three-bedroom, two-bath homes, and a lot of young couples are moving in.”
“With the interest rates still as low as they are and the synergy that’s going on in Dallas right now – from business growth and a strong, healthy community – there’s so much more opportunity for homebuyers. Start at the core of Dallas, and radiate south to Oak Cliff and the Design District, north to Uptown/Downtown, east to the area between the M Streets and White Rock Lake, and west to the Park Cities – in the next 10 years, anyone who buys real estate hugging that core will do well.”
“Neighborhoods like the Park Cities, Preston Hollow, Devonshire, Bluffview, Greenway Parks, West Highland Park and Lakewood offer not only access to some of the best public and private schools but also get you closer to Downtown, the Arts District and all of the cultural amenities they have to offer. We have a shortage of inventory in all of those neighborhoods, and that speaks to their popularity and investment value.”
