If you can fall in love with one of the older homes (older meaning 1950's to 1980's in terms of the DFW suburban housing market), which is not that hard to do, it might just be better for you to do the renovations to make it the home of your dreams.
If you do build new, try to keep in the architectural style of the neighborhood. There are some modern eyesores going in closer to downtown that are absolutely destroying the personality of some beautiful neighborhoods.
Have a blessed day!
What I like to do is communicate with you about some of your requirements in order to narrow our search to exactly what you want.
For example, do you have a desire for a certain acreage amount?
Were you leaning more toward a corner lot as opposed to interior?
Were you looking in for lots through the entire area of each city you mentioned or did you have certain parameters in mind?
We would also like to extend to you unlimited searches & notifications of land that does come available from now up until your final decision date that meet your needs.
