Support the independent voice of Dallas and help keep the future of Dallas Observer free.

Whilst on the city of Dallas Web site for an entirely unrelated matter, I espied this notice of interest to bargain hunters in search of property at low, low prices: a July 16th-scheduled offloading of foreclosed properties, most of which are vacant and some of which are ironically listed under the "improved properties" header, among them the one pictured here near the Oak Cliff Cemetery on 8th Street. Those so interested will need to submit a bid packet; me, I've got my eye on a whole mess of J.J. Lemmon Road up for grabs in the surplus-property sale a week earlier -- only $1.5 million for 98 acres.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
