You can contact me for a list of homes and I will run a search for you. Additionally, I will be listing a home in Lakewood Heights, which is in East Dallas. It's 4 bedrooms (4th bedroom can be used as a study), 2 full baths and 2 1/2 baths, hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, and very close to White Rock Lake. It is not on the market yet, so please contact me for price details or more information.

A hidden jewel -- the ENCLAVE AT GROVE HILL is the only NEW GATED COMMUNITY that is INNER CITY. the community is 4 miles to downtown. DAVID WEEKLEY is the home builder and is well known in the Houston and Dallas market. This community can be found at the intersection of LAWNVIEWN @ GROVE HILL; you can build a brand new home or buy and existing home. This is a surprise to a lot of folks - even the Dallas Police stats for 2009 show this community experience's the least amount of crime compare to the rest of the City! Folks call this community THE NEW EAST DALLAS........i hope this helps you out? Most important, do your research. one more thing, i'm not an agent just and person involved in his community

I've shown a couple contemporary homes in North Dallas recently--one was a foreclosure. Glad to show at your convenience. As others have said, real estate agents have capability of a much more detailed search of MLS and can pinpoint what you're looking for quickly. Let me know if I can help! Thanks!

Hi Dream,

I am a Broker who specializes in modern and contemporary homes. I'm also an interior designer and worked on my M.Arch (Masters in Architecture). I understand and love modern homes as much as you! I'm actually in the middle of remodeling my own home in the Mid-Century style with a 150,000 renovation! I plan to purchase 4 other homes on my street and turn my own street into a mid-century enclave. THe houses were all built in the late 1950's and are a great place to find good bargins now before my remodels increase the prices beyond their existing prices!

My neighborhood as well as many others in Dallas are great finds for architecturally significant homes - especially Modern and Mid-Century.

Depending upon what part of Dallas and the size of the home it will determine your price. Anywhere from $250,000 - 2 Million.

Let me know where you're interested in looking and I'd be happy to put together a list for you!

Thanks!

Well that will depend entirely on what you are looking for. Start with your location, then size/bedrooms/sf's.
Expect to pay MORE than you would for a traditional home in the same condition/location. Your very best bet is to 1. Get pre-approved for a mortgage 2. Hire a REALTOR(R) that specializes in the area you want to live and have them set up a custom search for you 3. When you find the house you want, jump on it. They are few and far between. Feel free to call if you have questions and best of luck in your search!

Dream - Did you get your answer? There are many modern and contemporary homes for sale in the Metroplex. What area of town are you looking to live? Whats your price range? Specifics would help.

If you would like assistance - I would love to help. I personally live in a Mid Century Modern in the Lake Highlands area. There are many great homes throughout the area so dont despair.

Dear home buyer - The simplest way to find a modern home is to have a search set for you by a local Realtor who can do a key word search based on the type of home you are looking for. There is a "modern/contemporary" search response - I have used it to help find homes in specific areas for clients. There are also websites geared towards modern enthusiasts such as http://www.moderndallas.net, which have offerings on everything modern from homes to the arts. I will be happy to pass along more information if you like.

There are a few homes in Dallas which are contemorary HOWEVER Dallas is bult majority as tradtiional style homes.

It also depends on what you qualify for purchase. Which governs on where to search. I do know great builder that his is style they are custom luxury homes .

Contact my office I can interview you determine additional info.

Most lenders will require approx. 2 years . However best contact a mortgage broker who can review your entire financial file.

I work with many families in similiar situations locate homes they lease then to purchase after their issues clear.

I can send you some. What price range do you want to be in and do you have an idea where you want to live? There are some around, but typically higher price ranges and few and far between.

Here's a few examples

One way to find homes that you may desire especially if you are looking for a new construction home is to go to http://www.hotonhomes.com. If this does not give you what you are looking for please go to my website at http://www.thedeberryteam.com. I think you should be able to find what you are looking for from either of these two sites.

You may also contact me directly and I will be happy to do a search based on your requirements.

Hi there,
I see your profile shows your location to be North Dallas but you mention you're from Houston. I'm an agent in the DFW metroplex and am familiar with areas here that have contemporary style homes. A lot will depend on the size of home you need as to what you can expect to pay. Your best bet is to work closely with an agent who knows your chosen area well and who has the ability to create a much more detailed search that is available to the general public on the various websites. Would love to assist if you are looking in DFW. Give me a call at 972-489-0228 anytime or email me. Thanks!
