Tech Terrace as a neighborhood and Tech Terrace homes have tremendous appeal. I've found though that the appeal is not universal. For those who have a romantic notion (and I don't mean huggy kissy) of what home should be, Tech Terrace is delightful.** This is a neighborhood where you can walk to the park or the coffee shop, greet neighbors, move at a slower pace, and enjoy a concert in the park at 26th and Boston. You can walk or bike to TTU. The homes are often described as "charming" and said to have "character". While some are fixer uppers, others have already been completely updated with great panache. However, even if extensive, this updating does not make a Tech Terrace home into a new home. Much of the appeal would be lost. If the words historical, charming, mature trees, character, retro, vintage, or distinctly different ring your chimes, then please let me show you some Tech Terrace homes.
Shopping for a home in Tech Terrace is a quite different experience from looking at new construction. For individuals who want the expected 3/2/2 brick home with a large walk in closet in the master, an open concept, and granite countertops a new home might fit the bill. You won't find a new home (or very rarely) within biking or walking distance of Texas Tech.
Those searching for a home in Lubbock are going to have to make a choice. If you want to be near TTU, the hospitals or just in central Lubbock you will be looking at homes built from 1920 through 1970. If you want a new home or home built since 2000 you will almost certainly be looking at newer subdivisions that are outside Loop 289, typically in South or West Lubbock. There are now some new subdivisions North of the Loop that are closer to central Lubbock.

** I fall into this category. Here is my Tech Terrace story. Seven years ago I picked up my granddaughter from swim lessons at the Texas Tech rec center. We were driving through the Tech Terrace neighborhood when I saw a charming home for sale by owner. It was unpretentious but lovely with a lush lawn and one enormous oak tree. A desert willow on the east side of the home branched out to the street. My granddaughter snagged a bloom from the tree through the sun roof. I think she and I both fell in love with that home. I watched it for awhile, set an appointment to see it even though it was out of my range but the appointment fell through. A month later the home was listed with a REALTOR. (I was not in real estate at that time) A month after that a 'REDUCED' sign was posted and soon after we bought the bungalow on 22nd.
