Addison Homes for Sale

Addison is in the central portion of the Far North Dallas region of Dallas, Texas. Its name used to be Peters Colony but had it changed in 1902 to honor postmaster Addison Robertson. In 1902, the city’s primary industry but with the recent urbanization of the Dallas – Fort Worth Metropolitan Area, Addison had greatly diversified. In 1953, Addison became an incorporated town. It officially changed its name to “Town of Addison” in 1982. Addison was renowned as “The Restaurant Capital of Texas” because it has more restaurants per capita than any other city in the state. Addison is also near all the attractions, sports, shopping, and airports in the DFW Metroplex.

The most common housing preference in Addison ranges from large apartment buildings; that make up half of the city’s residential supply. Others are smaller apartment buildings, a selection of single-family homes, bungalows, and single detached properties. Larger residential developments in the city were also developed during the 1990s. Typical home layouts in the region are quite modest, coming with one or two-bedroom layouts. These houses make up the housing options in the city’s heart with larger suburban options located in developments in surrounding areas. Renters make up almost three-quarters of the population while the rest are homeowners. Properties are not that cheap, yet it is reasonably priced.
