This question was posed in 2009 but the historic District is timeless so I will answer it today since you are reading this now. The Historic District spans several neighborhoods including The State Thomas neighborhood of Uptown Dallas, Downtown Dallas, Swiss Avenue, M Streets, Lakewood, East Dallas, Highland Park, University Park and Bryan area to name a few. All are highly desireable neighborhoods to Urban Dwellers. They boast Industrial Lofts downtown, Prairie Style homes, the Texas Ranch Style,Colonial Revivals, Craftsmans, Foursquares, and a wealth of Spanish Mediterranean and Tudor houses. These neighborhoods have kept their value and most rentals lease quickly! Now is a good time to invest in Bryan Area especially. Low interest rates and low home pricing makes it a great time to buy. But, also Downtown Dallas has been forecast to grow 500% by the year 2030. You do the math, then call me and let's get started.
