An adorable three-bedroom traditional at 9870 Mixon Dr. in Midway Hollow has hit the market, and its $262,500 price tag isn't the only thing that has potential buyers' attention.

This cozy 1,277-square-foot home is move-in ready, making it a great first home for a Dallas young professional or anyone else looking to minimize the to-do lists commonly associated with moving into a new place.

"The home is perfect for anyone looking for a safe, tight-knit neighborhood where neighbors know each other and are connected to each other," listing agent Laura Crowl says.

Its list of charming features starts from the moment you drive up, with its handsome curb appeal and manicured lawn. The property also has a large deck in the backyard for relaxing on the weekends or talking with friends over a cold beer. Mature trees cover the property, and a sprinkler system helps keep up the greenery.

Once you walk in, you are in one of two living areas, which serves as the cornerstone of the home. It's cozy, functional and accessible from all parts of the house. Natural light is abundant, but plantation shutters provide privacy when you need it.

The updated kitchen, with its beautiful stained cabinetry and granite countertops, will appeal to the chef in the family, as will the gas range and other stainless steel appliances.

This 1950s construction has had some foundation work, and it comes with a lifetime warranty, so you don't have to front the cost for any future repairs. Other added bonuses include hardwood floors, one-car garage, linen closet, utility room and alarm system.

The house has only one bathroom, but if it comes in under budget, you can easily add another one. All things considered, this house is a steal in today's competitive market and won't be around long.
