TEXAS HILL COUNTRY REAL ESTATE
Spending time in the Texas Hill Country, either as a visitor or resident, is a unique experience. The typical lifestyle in this south-central portion of Texas is considered “laid-back” and easy. Clean air, clear lakes and rivers are a haven for swimmers, boaters and water sports enthusiasts, and fishermen. Anyone with a yearning for the simpler ways of life might enjoy vineyards, horse activities, gardening, hiking, wildlife and dramatic sunsets that will take your breath away. As you travel along country roads and enjoy the spectacular hills and majestic oaks and native wildlife, you’re likely to find activities to interest you such as winery and wildflower tours and festivals, exotic wildlife ranches, golfing, motorcycle & classic car rallies, early Texas historic sites, art galleries, craft fairs, antiques, farmer’s markets, BBQ cook-offs, state and national parks, camping, hunting, hiking and R-Ving, boat racing, live music, and the friendliest people in the world! And although peace and quiet are bountiful, if it’s excitement and the city life you desire, an easy drive from most anywhere in the Texas Hill Country will take you to Austin, the capital of Texas and home to the University of Texas, or the lively city of San Antonio, home to the famous “San Antonio River Walk” and historic Alamo.
Although the real estate market has not been totally exempt from the current economic slow-down, this part of the state has historically experienced steady and healthy growth. The wide variety in types of properties for sale, reasonable cost of living, and healthy tourism industry has much to do with the stability of this market. From affordable first-time buyer homes, to upscale retirement homes, to condos and luxury homes fronting one of the area lakes in the Highland Lakes chain, to vast ranches and small acreage tracts, buyers have wide choices for every income level and investment need.
