Highland Park Dallas Real Estate
Gracious Highland Park Dallas homes can be purchased for close to $1,000,000 or over $50,000,000, but each home is in a beautiful Highland Park Dallas neighborhood that enjoys the Highland Park Police, Department of Public Safety, Highland Park Fire Department, Highland Park schools, library and the meandering creeks like Hackberry Creek and Turtle Creek that run through Highland Park linking the green spaces, parks and small Highland Park neighborhoods. Often Highland Park Dallas homes can be purchased at lot value because the demand for land is so strong and growing because the inventory of Highland Park homes and Highland Park lots is so small. Highland Park is totally insulated from Dallas and any challenges facing a large city. Highland Park is also the neighborhood closest to the Knox entertainment area, the Arts District, and Katy Trail, the wonderful assets of the city. The better Dallas does as a city, the more valuable the property becomes in Highland Park Dallas.
