Come home to Dallas/Fort Worth.
Welcome to Dallas and all the wonderful places that make the Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) area one of a kind. Here, you will discover communities to fit the lifestyle of every newcomer. Although the DFW Metroplex is the fourth largest municipality in the nation, it is the least densely populated major metropolitan area in the United States. A multitude of living options include high-rise dwellings near downtown, eclectic lofts and apartments, established homes in Highland Park, new homes in master-planned communities that offer all the essentials in one locale, tranquil rural settings, and spacious homes in traditional suburbs at every price point.
Neighborhoods and communities in the DFW area may be diverse, but they share an important common quality—an abundance of entertainment, educational and recreational opportunities. The Dallas area boasts convenience and charm in lifestyle and housing opportunities. Whether you are a temporary business traveler or a family of five, the region offers diverse housing options for individuals and families of all sizes.
Home-buying options range from pre-owned homes to custom-built homes. Home buying in Dallas depends on what area you wish to call home and also what type of home best fits your lifestyle. Nestled around White Rock Lake are cozy homes dating back to the 1950s. Off of Lower Greenville Avenue, you will find the area known locally as “The M Streets” where picturesque storybook cottages are awaiting new tenants.
For lots of land, check the outlying areas, specifically south on I-35 and north on Central Expressway where new developments are emerging. If you prefer the “more square footage the better” motto, check into homes in the Highland Park and North Dallas areas. Home to local celebrities Mark Cuban and Tom Hicks, these two residential areas boast millionaire-style homes, enveloped in majestic scenery. Lush woods and scenic streets will welcome you home.
Zero Lot Line and Garden Homes
With the population explosion of the 1990s came the need for more home in a smaller space. Thus, zero lot line and garden homes were born. These homes offer smaller yards and use much needed land area with low-maintenance ground cover and landscaping, minimizing yard work needs. In some cases, a small garden or patio is available for outdoor activities. This style of home is perfect for individuals that do not need or want the hassle of lawn maintenance.
Condominiums and Lofts
The newest trend in DFW housing takes place above shops, restaurants and movie theaters in numerous condominium and loft communities scattered throughout the area. On McKinney Avenue, an eclectic mix of community living and upscale shopping is accented by restaurants and bars unique to the area. North of downtown you will find Mockingbird Station, Uptown, Knox Park and other multiunit dwellings. Further north in Plano is The Shops at Legacy, a 168-acre master planned development of urban style homes, boutique retail, best-in-class restaurants, corporate headquarters, a full-service hotel, and over 8 acres of public parks & trails.
