texas tech university: West Texas Luxury 'Barndominium'! - 05/16/16 12:25 AM
Anyone want to grow grapes for a West Texas Winery?  Or want a horse property?
A dear friend of mine and her husband built their dream home, a Barndominium, on 14.5 acres just south of Lubbock, Texas.  Their plan - live off the land and grow grapes for award winning Lubbock Wineries.

If you live in the Tech Terrace neighborhood, adjacent to Texas Tech University, you certainly live in one of the most popular Lubbock neighborhoods.  I have been giving frequent updates on the real estate market in Lubbock in general and in Tech Terrace in particular and I've been amazed to see the dwindling supply of Tech Terrace homes.

texas tech university: 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)
