"Affordable living just north of Downtown Dallas"

A small working-class neighborhood in Northeast Dallas, Royal Lane Village is one of the most affordable housing options in the city. There are some small family homes here that are available for just under $100,000, and others that are a bit more steeply priced. It's close to Dallas Area Rapid Transit train and bus stations making it quick and affordable to commute to almost any part of the city. It's served by the Dallas Independent School District, and there are a number of quality private schools in the area.

If you love golf, Royal Oaks Country Club is right across Royal Lane to the south, and the course is lauded by pros in the area as one of Dallas' best. Just east is Greenville Avenue, which is home to some of the best dining and hottest nightspots in the entire city. White Rock Lake and the Dallas Arboretum are only a few minutes away, and they are two of the top destinations in the city of Dallas. On the flip side, many of the homes in this area are used as rental properties, and as you would expect landscaping has suffered and the crime rate has risen.

Royal Lane Village is an affordable choice for housing in the city of Dallas.
