tech terrace: Buy a Tech Terrace Home! - 04/12/16 11:43 AM

You are moving to Lubbock and want to live near Texas Tech University.   Your current Lubbock home has a serious 'charm' deficit.   Your child who is now quite grown up is a TTU student who wants OUT of the dorm. You are ready to move out of your 'cookie cutter' neighborhood.   You would like a neighborhood where people walk in the evenings, where you can hear doves coo. Okay, maybe the dove cooing part is a bit much but if you can identify with any of the above statements, Tech Terrace is where you need to find … (0 comments)

tech terrace: 10 Things Real-Estate Agents Won't Tell You - Or Will They - 7 through 10 - 06/07/14 01:13 AM
I am determined to conclude this series and will wrap it up with 4 for the price of 1!  Read on about an article from the Wall Street Journal that suggested there were 10 things your Real Estate Agent would not tell you.
#7 -  "I don't know anything about this neighborhood."
It is best to have an agent who knows the neighborhood.   I'm particularly well-versed about homes in Tech Terrace, Farrah, North Pointe, and homes in Ransom Canyon since I have owned homes in each neighborhood.  But I feel 100% confident that I can do a great job for my buyers who choose … (3 comments)

tech terrace: Tech Terrace Lubbock! - 02/05/13 01:16 AM
A very dynamic neighborhood in Lubbock, TX is Tech Terrace which is situated just south of Texas Tech University.  If you are a student, parent of student, or member of Texas Tech's faculty or staff you may wish to look for a home in this area.  One big draw for the neighborhood is convenience to campus - you can walk or bike and save on gas and parking expense!  Many Tech Terrace homes were built prior to 1960 and the variety of styles of homes, the mature landscaping, the parks and schools all hold great appeal for many home buyers in Lubbock - … (0 comments)

tech terrace: Lubbock Homes for Sale - Tech Terrace Inventory Down - 08/11/11 02:38 AM
Need a Lubbock REALTOR?  You have come to the right place!
Today there are over 1500 homes for sale in Lubbock.  If you add homes from some small communities nearby, that number of properties for sale rises to 1662.  This is a great time to buy a home or to invest in rental property.
The number of homes for sale in Tech Terrace now is down almost 50% from summer 2010.  I wonder why there has been such a drop in homes selling in the neighborhood.  There are multiple factors involved.  I would love to hear your thoughts, particularly if you … (0 comments)

tech terrace: Tech Terrace Homes Update, Great Lubbock Homes Available! - 06/20/11 04:32 AM
Greetings all! Of all central Lubbock neighborhoods, Tech Terrace is by far the most popular with homes here in great demand. Earlier this week I took some time to drive through the neighborhood.

If you are new to Lubbock and have not yet been to the Tech Terrace neighborhood, it is the area located between University and Indiana, and 19th Street and 34th Street. I just took a look at Lubbock's multiple listing service and found that there are currently 26 homes for sale … (2 comments)

tech terrace: September Update - Lubbock Homes for Sale - 09/20/10 04:47 PM
I have had a great few weeks with lots of business and some fun travel too.  I have been to Phoenix, Vegas and Austin.  But like Dorothy says, there is no place like home.
The Lubbock real estate market is still very stable but has shifted to a buyer's market.  This means that buyers have more to choose from, while sellers are likely making more concessions to get their homes sold.  All in all it is a super time to buy a home in Lubbock.
I just did a search of our Multiple Listing Service and wow!  I show 1536 homes … (0 comments)

It is no wonder that Tech Terrace real estate is in demand. It just takes minutes to walk or bike to TTU from … (0 comments)
