What exactly is your point? Yes, 450k is out of the reach of many. 300k is out of reach for most of all Americans and 90% of the world's population. Lakewooder posted a nice little tidbit about a new development with a little smaller houses and lower prices than many homes in the surrounding neighborhoods. Personally, I like knowing this information.

There are still 2,000 square foot 50s and 60s ranch homes in the area for around $300,000 more or less. They are very well-built, located and relatively spacious. Also if you really want to live in the area, there are less expensive apartments, duplexes and some other homes which need work. Hollywood Heights costs less than the M-Streets and Junius Heights less than that. There are still some pretty good buys to be had in or adjacent to Vickery Place, Cochran Heights, Belmont and between Greenville and Live Oak south of Ross.

However, this thread is about how it's getting more expensive because the area has been "discovered" - as a recent East Dallas Chamber of Commerce speaker put it...
