Considering I purchased my first home in Casa View, I have dedicated most of my marketing and invesment dollar promoting this hidden little gold mine of an area. In general the 75228 aear or East Dallas is literally overflowing with great deals and very well maintained communities, As far as a Realtor stating one part of the street may be better than say another part or a block over is better than the block you are looking at seems to be a bit too subjective and the comment "better" does not cover any specific ameneties or attributes that would help you really make a decision on where there may be a good buy. Casa View/Casa Linda has a maority of homes in its subdivisions that range from 850 Sq Ft to about 1200 Sq Ft on average & a sales prices range from $35,000 & as high a $115,000. Most homes in this area were anywhere from the late 1940's up to homes just built. .
Whether you are looking to invest or buy for your personal use, 75228 is indeed a great value and especially suitable for the fist time homeowner and smart choice for the new investor to build their portfolio with great rental homes as well as flips.
