The Dallas/Fort Worth real estate market is hot, but that does not mean you have to sacrifice quality to stay in your budget. In fact, single-family homes constructed in the last ten years under $300,000 are available in DFW and the surrounding area in good neighborhoods. 

We conducted an exclusive search for new construction in under $300K and we believe these areas are worth adding to your search based on accessibility and livability scores.

After we compiled our search, we narrowed it down by considering factors like safety and quality of life. Keep in mind that Dallas in particular is difficult to describe entire pockets because livability can sometimes vary street to street rather than by entire neighborhood clusters.
