You think you can’t get move-in ready in Dallas for less than $250,000? Think again. The house at 11207 Sinclair Ave., near Garland and Jupiter roads, has all the updates you require.

This three-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath traditional was built in 1955. It has 1,293 square feet, an open floorplan, modern kitchen, and original hardwood floors. Essential updates include a newish air conditioner, furnace, water heater, roof, and fence.

Less essential but more fun updates include refaced cabinets with new pulls, granite countertops, glass tile backsplash, breakfast bar, and new tile floor in the kitchen; bathrooms have marble floors. Plus the place got some professional landscaping, and there’s a 238-square-foot bonus room not listed in the square footage.

The home is located in the Lake and Garden District’s Lochwood neighborhood, one of the loveliest in East Dallas, with greenbelts, mature trees, hiking trails, and creeks. The property also is within walking distance of the 12.3-acre Lochwood Park, with baseball field and basketball court, pavilion with picnic tables, playground, swimming pool, tennis court, and trails.

The list price is $247,000, marketed by Meg Skinner of Dave Perry-Miller Real Estate. That’s $190 per square foot — ambitious when you consider the average of nine active area comps is $133 — but you don’t have to do a thing but move in. That might be priceless.
