I know a few people who live in the Mountain Creek Parkway part of Dallas. I'm sure there are homes closer to the $150-200k range and its actually quite nice. Its not Oak Cliff but it is in the southwest part of Dallas. In terms of natural setting, it certainly looks better than anywhere else within the Dallas city limits.

Parts of Mountain Creek are indeed really nice. I didn't realize it was still pretty cheap.

Rowan, I didn't say you said East Dallas was in North Dallas, but a lot of people seem to think that, including The Dallas Morning News when it does North/South features...

I understand it if you're just cutting the city in half, north vs south.

Oak Cliff as may have chimed in, is changing at a brisk pace and worth learning. A few areas to check out in your price range: El Tivoli, Ravinia Heights, Kiest, Sunset Hills. Parts are very working class, parts are very poor, parts are very swanky and parts you will have one nice street and one not so nice street. The other great thing about Oak Cliff & South Dallas is the topography. There are actual hills and trees.

It seems South Dallas is not getting a lot of love.

North is way better but prices are high.

Actually, south Dallas is way better than north Dallas - in topography, water access, Great Trinity Forest, everything except for jobs, homes, and retail for the most part. Trinity River, Dogwood Canyon etc - are all south of Dallas.

North of Dallas is the flat cotton-fieldy part.

Communities are mostly black and hispanic.

Low income families are more common.

You can have some theft problems or similar.

But topography is nice, that's true
