Jane McGarry sold her gorgeous West Fort Worth hacienda in July and plans to build a new, smaller version nearby.

“I just closed on a West Fort Worth lot a couple of weeks ago,” said North Texas TV legend Jane McGarry, who now blogs at realjane.net. “I am drawing up floorplans for the new house right now and I hope to build a smaller, less expensive, low-maintenance version of my Westover Hills home I sold in July, the perfect baby boomer ‘down-sizing’ house.”

Get More For Your Moolah With This Cute Fort Worth Ranch on a Huge Lot

6304 Inca Front

I saw this home pop up in my search today, it’s first day on the market, and I was stunned. In Ridgemar, a fantastic West Fort Worth neighborhood, you can get this totally remodeled 1960s ranch with three bedrooms, two full baths and one half bath, more than 2,400 square feet, and a whopping 0.39 acre lot for $380,000. You’d pay at least $400K for that in a comparable Dallas neighborhood!

Just goes to show that our wonderful neighbors to the west have some great deals. Maybe it’s time to move to Cowtown?
