What the Locals Say About Mount Auburn

Locals Love

“Access to Dallas amenities, with a notoriously lower average price point than other areas in the area. The neighborhood is diverse in its residents and its general home price range, but the home prices over time have remained steady. The neighborhood has now been seeing a revitalization,” says Doug Newby, a real estate broker with Architecturally Significant homes who works in the neighborhood.

“Gentrification of the area is pushing out long-time residents that have resided in Mount Auburn for many years,” says Newby.

Fun Fact

“The neighborhood is a perfect example of a Dallas neighborhood that allowed people to own a home with significant home appreciation. The homes aren’t as elaborate as other surrounding neighborhoods, but it’s seven blocks away from Swiss Avenue,” says Newby.
