College Station-Bryan leads Texas. Texas leads the country in economic recovery.

June 30, 2010

If you’re looking for positive signs that the country is rebounding from the recession, look at Texas. Then focus on Bryan-College Station. According to the June 2010 review from the Real Estate Center, Texas is leading the U.S in the economic recovery. After enduring 16 months of job losses, the state posted an annual employment growth rate that hit the positive numbers.

Five industries showed significant progress in new jobs: education and health services, mining and logging, leisure and hospitality, professional and business services, and other services (repair and maintenance, personal and laundry services, religious, civic and professional organizations).

Here in Bryan-College Station, our 5.8% unemployment rate is the 4th lowest in the entire state of Texas, which is already lower than the national 9.3% rate. Even better news: Bryan-College Station ranked first in employment growth rate, at 3.3%.

Clearly, we are ahead of the curve here in Bryan-College Station. With more job creation and a healthier unemployment rate, this region offers an exceptional opportunity for real estate investment. You can purchase a new home in this growing area, enjoy the benefits of our new schools, and become part of a community that is clearly on the rise. Stylecraft Builders is here when you’re ready to make your move.

Stylecraft Builders – Central Texas’ New Home Builder

A new home plus new schools pack a wonderful one-two punch for homebuyers.

June 23, 2010

The Eagle reported recently that construction is officially underway for two new schools in College Station: The College Station High School and Greens Prairie Elementary School. The high school alone will cost $101 million and is slated to open in August 2012. The elementary school, scheduled to open in August 2011, will cost about $17.8 million. Why the need for these two beautiful new schools in this area, conveniently located near Stylecraft Builders’ new Sonoma community? More than double the number of students is anticipated for this area of Texas at some point in the near future. Superintendent Eddie Coulson suggests that the current enrollment of 10,000 children could jump to 25,000 students; hence the need for new schools.

The demand is due in part to a booming economy and real estate market. The Sonoma community will complement these new schools by offering affordable elegance with popular new home styles of Tuscan, French Country, and Neo-Traditional exteriors. Plus, with a community centered around family—Sonoma includes a community playground and is close to the schools and local parks—new homebuyers can live in the popular south-end of College Station, reap the benefits of brand new schools, while living in a safe, new community. Currently, the Creek View Elementary and Cypress Grove Intermediate Schools are the schools of choice for this community, but as the area grows, and the new schools are added, families will have excellent choices for their children’s education.

While homes in Sonoma are already under construction, there is still time for new home buyers to customize and personalize the interior of their new home with interior fixtures, appliances, and other aesthetics.

South College Station, TX – As a city’s center shifts south, new home buying opportunities emerge.

June 16, 2010

An interesting article in The Eagle recently alluded to the fact that College Station’s city hub may be moving. Now that doesn’t mean that the brick and mortar is literally being picked up and will be put down elsewhere, like in “The Wizard of Oz”, but it does suggest that an interesting shift is going on in this college town, simply because of the increased development and economic boon that is happening in the south part of the city. This summer, both Lowe’s and H-E-B will celebrate their grand openings at the intersection of Texas 6 and William D. Fitch Parkway. As the intersection and area continue to grow with casual restaurants and the influx of retail shops, College Station’s center may actually become a gateway to the south into Brazos County and areas like Brenham and Navasota. For those who are considering purchasing a new home in these surrounding communities—people who perhaps are looking to benefit from offerings and economics of Texas A&M University without having to live in the middle of campus—buying a new home in these growing areas makes smart real estate sense.

Land value is increasing as well, including the city-owned, 300-acre parcel, where Lowe’s is located, which has doubled in value since the city acquired the property. With other similar areas of development happening in College Station, and the addition of more retail, restaurants, a Super WalMart, and even a growing “medical drive,” new home buyers will find the convenience they need without being experiencing the impact of a college lifestyle.

Clearly, College Station and its surrounding southern areas are a hotbed for economic growth and development. Your new home, built to your design with your dreams in mind, could be in this desirable area that offers so much promise.
