Advantages of Buying Land in Texas: Part Three

sb10069137ae-001We’ve been discussing great reasons to own land in Texas, telling you just a few of the benefits of choosing to live here. Today we’ll finish our series by discussing with you why so many people have chosen to purchase rural land in Texas in recent years.

Weather. Of course, Texas is a Southern state, so it enjoys the full benefits of that distinction. While Texas summers can be hot, Texas winters are generally very mild. Moderate, pleasant winters translate into less wear and tear on homes than what you’d experience in harsher climates. Snow—and particularly ice—can wreak havoc on a home, especially on the roof and drainage systems. These are issues Texans rarely have to deal with.

Hospitals. Texas is home to some of the finest hospitals in the country. With several major cities and large metropolitan areas, Texas is an attractive draw for in-demand physicians. Texas is widely regarded for its scientific research contributing to advancement of the field of medicine, as well as for highly qualified surgeons and superior hospital facilities. In fact, our Bridges at Preston Crossings community is a short distance from such quality hospitals in north Texas as the Texoma Medical Center and the Wilson N. Jones Medical Center.

Sports. It should go without saying that Texas is the place for sports lovers. Texas is football country. We have several nationally-known universities fielding college football teams, not to mention professional football teams including the Houston Texans and the world-famous Dallas Cowboys. Texas is baseball country too, home to both the Texas Rangers and the Houston Astros. But we don’t stop there. We also have professional basketball: the San Antonio Spurs and the Dallas Mavericks. We even have the Dallas Stars hockey team!

Texas is a great place to live and to work. Whatever you do, whatever you enjoy, and whatever you’re looking for, Texas has something special to offer you. Texans are passionate about their state. Southstar Communities has several property options to help you come and discover Texas for yourself, with locations and communities in Iola, New Braunfels, Dennis, Cedar Hill, and Gunter.
