Dallas is always a good investment, however $50,000 will probably only buy a small condo in an area that is not favorable. Pick 1 Realtor and work with them on finding a property that is suitable for you.
Do you have a specific units you are interested in? If so, I would be more than happy to get the condo financial and talk to the management. This way you don't have to worry about future assessments that will cost you!

You've names four areas that all have excellent school systems, so I don't think you can go wrong in any of them. I suggest you look into secondary factors to help you decide where to look for your new home, such as proximity to work, family, or friends, or perhaps parks or other outdoor activities.
I, or any good Realtor, can help you in your search. Please give me a call if you have further questions.
