I was typing out a web site I found but figured I should delete it because it goes against the rules. I though found an really neat site that has lots of huge pictures of homes and detailed neighborhood photos. I searched and found his site has been mentioned before here. I just like looking at the pictures. Very detailed.

Believe me I understand your frustration. I have my own favorite real estate site for searches as well. But I do understand the motivation behind the realtor.com only policy.

Default anyone heard of devonshire or briarwood

man, thanks so much everybody for such thourough replies. I actually had forgotten that I posted this question here and was so thrilled to see so many great responses.

We have a new question. WE are still looking with the same price range 700-mil with 3500s/f minimum, and 4 bedroom, would like a nice yard. Anyway, we found a new area around Inwood and Lovers called Briarwood that has a LOT of new building in an older area. It's strange to me though because you will find 800-1mil dollar homes interspersed with very old ones (a bit like M-streets, but more drastic). I wasn't sure what to think of this. Also an area with better yards around the Inwood/Lovers area is called Devonshire. This area has older homes with bigger lots, but not quite as much building as Briarwood. I loved Devonshire, but didn't see as many homes for sale there as in Briarwood. I am not even sure if I have the names of the neighborhoods correct, but the street names for what we are calling Briarwood are Purdue, Amherst, Stanford and others that I've forgotten now. Anyway, we weren't quite sure what to think about these areas as we have heard nothing about them before. What does everybody think about these areas? Our MAIN concern is resale value, so we are willing to settle for less room/yard etc if we have that home in the right area. What do you guys think?

Also, my husband owns a homehealth care agency that has always (and will always) have it's main headquarters in Duncanville. Therefore, we really need to stay within 635 so that his commute isn't too bad.

The areas around Inwood/Lovers Lane are VERY NICE!!! You can not go wrong in that area at all. Your going to find the older bungalow homes and such like the M Streets mixed in there as no one tore them down to rebuild. Then your going to find the original home on the outside w/ some sprucing up/modern features w/ a total gut job on the inside. All the way to total teardowns w/ newer homes rebuilt. This area is at the edge of the Park Cites and some of those same street names go all the way thru to the Park Cities. You are going to find the newer built developments from large tracts of land that were never developed into smaller tracts originally. Most of this area were more "estate" type developments with homes on acreage.

Great shopping at Inwood/Lovers and the Dallas North Tollway.

I don't think you could go wrong in this area at all. Just the fact that there are not many homes for sale at all is a sign that it is a stable area and people are happy and content w/ where they are.

Great area!! My mom grew up in Devonshire. My son has a friend who lives in Bluffview (heavily wooded lot) and I went to a school lunch over there as well at someone's house (very nice also wooded with a creek running through it). Do you have kids? Most kids over there are in private school.

Smile Park Cities vs. Southlake

Both areas are great, but in different ways. Park Cities is more of a cultural area with lots to see and do within a small area. Southlake you get the "new Dallas" with lots of shopping, and restaurants (modern-style). I like both areas, it just depends what you fits your lifestyle needs best.
