What You Can Buy for $1 Million in Dallas Right Now

Five Exceptional Homes in Five Desirable Neighborhoods

BY // 06.14.22

I don’t need to tell you the Dallas real estate market is wild right now — if you’ve arrived at this post, you’re likely well-versed in its general hotness. There is, however, a fun way to show the state of our local market. For the purposes of this post, we’ll go with: what you can buy in Dallas county for $1 million.

Remember when $1 million seemed astronomical? It’s still a beautifully secure amount to be able to spend on a home, but if you happen to be house hunting in Dallas right now, that particular threshold will knock you clear out of the Park Cities, save for a duplex or two. It’s a price point you’ll want to be comfortable hovering around if you want anything in Lakewood or Lower Greenville in 2022. You’ll have a bit more luck in the Bishop Arts area or charming Winnetka Heights, but you’ll need to move fast to score the most lovingly restored Craftsmans.

Things move fast in today’s market, but we’ve rounded up five exceptional homes, across five desirable Dallas neighborhoods, to showcase what’s available now. Happy house hunting!
