Grand Addison, Chatham Court, and Waterford are all good neighborhoods in that $250,000-$350,000 price range. Realize, though, that you will pay for location. Addison is one of the only cities in Dallas where a 3-bedroom home could cost you over a million dollars. And, there isn't a single 4-bedroom home available at the moment for under $1.2 million. There are some terrific Dallas neighborhoods that are on the edges of Addison and are wonderful choices. But, keep in mind that this is an area of resale homes - not new construction. Keep the year built 'open' and don't fear a home built in the 1970's and 1980's. This was a fantastic time in the Dallas suburbs, when builders were making names for themselves. Custom homes can sell in this area in the $225,000-$350,000 price range, and these homes pre-date the recession of the early 1990's, so quality materials are common and architecture is unique and not cookie-cutter.
Have a blessed day!
