Hello everyone-

My wife and I are recently married and are looking into buying a home in the next 6 months. Our budget is $275-325k. I wanted to know if anyone has suggestions of neighborhoods to look into. We both work in the uptown/downtown area, and would like to stay south of 635. We like townhomes/homes with a small yard. We have ruled out moving out to Frisco/Plano/McKinney etc. We like the idea of being close to Oaklawn/Uptown/Greenville/Lovers. Any neighborhood suggestions to look into? It seems the Greenville area and M-Streets are nice, but out of our price range these days.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

75229 is an awesome area for your budget ; you'll get a nice sized home & yard in an area that is becoming popular with young professionals and young families (good elementary school). Check the neighborhoods between Midway & Webb Chapel, Forrest & Walnut Hill.

reply to BigDGeek: A small yard that we could put a few chairs, maybe a few flowers. Not more than 150 sq ft.

Ah. That's TINY. I don't know anything about townhomes or condos, but I'm sure someone here can steer you right.

Have you looked at townhomes in the lower and lowest Greenville area?

Oh, scratch my recommendation then. I'd start looking at the townhomes in 75219, 75204, 75201, and 75206. Prices have been rising so probably won't be tons to choose from west of 75, but should have options east of 75. Just be sure to walk the neighborhood day & night as some area east of 75 are transitional (thinking along Ross by Baylor).

Also check 75214. There are some townhomes in the Lakewood area that are lovely and walkable to restaurants, shops, etc. I know there are some on Prospect Ave.

You might also find a small home in Junius Heights that would fit your budget. Lots of young couples in that area and it's convenient to uptown/downtown. Also in the 75214 zip code.
