college station real estate: Carter Lake, a College Station Real Estate Dream! - 08/19/07 12:00 AM
There are times when moving to Brazos Valley meant staring lovingly at my bathtub. I am originally from Michigan with a lake every three feet it seems. The vast contrast between the two places at times is a source of concern! College Station is very different from Michigan and most other lake abundant places and it is difficult to get land with good lakes. Most of we call lakes here wouldn't even necessarily be called a pond back in Michigan. They are ultra small bodies of water that cannot support sailing, boating or even very good fishing. In contrast College Station has a hidden treasure in (5 comments)
college station real estate: College Station condos - 08/18/07 06:01 PM
College Station has a wide variety of student condos as well as condos that are perfect for just spending an occasional football weekend in. Bryan is another good venue for condos, though many there are for active adults as well and tend to be more luxury listings. We will focus on the more desirable, newer condos available in our market. The desirability of a College Station Condo can be tagged upon how close the complex is to campus, with those being further away selling for less money, even when they are well appointed. Fox Run Condos are probably one of the closest condo projects (9 comments)

college station real estate: The Bryan/College Station Market - 06/23/07 08:37 PM
The media loves to talk about how difficult the housing market is currently and how prices are going down. Because of B/CS's location we don't see many of the shifts that affect the market. We always have students coming in, many of whom have parents that see the sense in purchasing for their 4-5 year typical stay. We always have students leaving, selling that second home that brought them excellent value increases as well as rental income. Professors and support staff as well as school administration are frequently taking jobs at other schools as well. May of 2007 gave Bryan and College (0 comments)

A little known townhouse community is directly across from the University Golf Course and easy walking or biking distance to classes. Oakwood Intermediate and A&M Consolidated Middle School are quite handy as well to these units. Not many come up for sale each year, but when they do they easily sell as they appeal to professors, students and people wanting a second home to watch games. These units were built in the 70's, but many have been updated with appealing items such as granite countertops, new flooring choices and energy efficient appliances.
