Oak Cliff is not perfect, and we love it that way.

The Wall Street Journal called out Oak Cliff in a story about identifying “the next hot neighborhood.”

The story points to the Bishop Arts District, Dude Sweet Chocolate and the recent relocation of one Twitter-famous Jon Daniel as examples of our neighborhood’s gentrification.

The story is about how to tell when a neighborhood is “primed to take off.” It also lists the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles and West Nashville as places where gentrification is taking hold and fast.

The last time Oak Cliff made a national real estate story was in March 2011 when This Old House magazine wrote that a “Tudor with a custom kitchen sold for $225,000,” and “First-time buyers can find smaller, move-in-ready cottages and bungalows starting at $100,000.” Oh, the difference a couple of years makes. Now it is hard to find any renovated house on the North Oak Cliff market for under $200,000.
