Least & Most Expensive Dallas Homes for Sale

Almost half way through a bumpy year, and there is a wide variety of homes for sale. These two properties represent the extremes of our real estate offerings right now.

In an estate area of Highland Park, 6812 Hunters Glen includes 1.5 acres backing to Turtle Creek. The contemporary home was designed by architect Frank Welch - which helps explain it's $18,000,000 price tag. For those big bucks you get over 10,000 square feet including a master "retreat", private guest wing, separate children's wing, pool, gardens, pavilion, and lots of privacy.

About 10 miles southeast is the least expensive property for sale. It is also near a creek and Lake June. This townhouse at 9406 Olde Village Court features 2 bedrooms with a bath and a half in 1,110 square feet. The condition may be questionable and it is a foreclosure being sold 'as is'. But at $7,000 - at least it has 4 walls and a roof.

Trulia lists this as sold in May.

For a little history:

This place changed hands on May 8th this year from the owner to JP Morgan Chase Bank. Then on May 21st it went to the Federal National Mortgage Association. It looks like a typical foreclosure.

It was listed for sale on May 29th and stills show 'active' in the MLS. I don't think Trulia's information is acurate. They show a May 8th sale date. It may have been sold by the bank within the last week and just isn't recorded yet.

I'll admit it isn't my area of expertise. I don't really know this neighborhood and I haven't toured the property.
