Firm: Fall is an ideal time to buy a home

The fall is usually a slower season for home sales as compared to the spring, but this year as temperatures cooled, the Dallas-area real estate market has remained hot, according to Allie Beth Allman & Associates.

With historic low interest rates, it’s a great time to buy a bigger home, your first home or to downsize to a smaller home. Consider these four residences that came on the market this month.

The five-bedroom home at 9323 Rockbrook Drive in Preston Hollow is offered by Alex Perry. The interior features an entry anchored by a winding staircase and a kitchen with soapstone countertops, an island and Sub-Zero appliances. A glass wall in the living room provides views of the back courtyard. Amenities include a large wine cellar, Baccarat pendant lighting, a bathroom with an onyx countertop, art lighting and a water filtration system. The backyard includes a canopy of trees.

The five-bedroom transitional-style home at 6615 Northwood Road in Preston Hollow is listed by Julie Haymann and Lauren Savariego. The primary and guest suites are downstairs, along with a study, laundry room and mudroom. The well-equipped kitchen opens to the family room. Three bedrooms, a combination game/media room and an art space are upstairs. Features include a home office, gym, putting green and three-car garage. A fireplace is beside the new pool.

The three-bedroom residence at 2807 Lovers Lane in University Park was completely remodeled in 2011. Offered by Elizabeth Wisdom, this home is situated on a large lot with a circular drive and a two-car garage. The detached back house has vaulted ceilings, a bar, bathroom and upstairs loft. A screened-in porch built in 2013 overlooks the large backyard. A detached gym space or studio is off the carport, where there is additional parking space and an electric gate. Students may attend Highland Park schools.

The three-bedroom home at 5734 Belmont Ave. features a flowing floor plan, vaulted ceilings, wood flooring and Nest thermostats. Listed by Lindsey Malloy, this residence is close to Greenville Avenue shops and restaurants. The kitchen has stainless-steel appliances, a gas cooktop and custom cabinetry. The primary suite includes a bathroom with dual sinks, a separate shower, a soaking tub and a walk-in closet. It accesses the backyard and deck. There are no homeowners’ association dues.
