Thinking about moving to Bryan or College Station, TX?  You're not alone!!!  The area is attracting attention from a number of companies and individuals.  Regardless of whether you are looking for a smaller community, a new career, or a different lifestyle, College Station has a lot to offer.

 

College Station Home Prices

Home prices are moderate and well positioned to rise.  In the last 5-7 years we've had a steady appreciation of 3-5% per year.  Not bad, but not enough for a "crash".  We've seen a bit of a tougher market just recently but even then the prices didn't dive like they did in many areas.  For a moderate price range, say $150K you can get a newer home in several areas that is anywhere from 1200-1400 square feet in a nice neighborhood.  Click here for see College Station Homes for sale.

Hi Chris,

Sounds to me like College Station must be a great place. The fact that you've had appreciation in your market says a lot while other places have suffered dramatically.

I think Texas is getting it right, that's why so many of our CA businesses have left here and moved there.

Hi Chris,

College Station sounds like a great place to relocate to.  I can see a lot of prospects headed your way. Being in a college town sure does help the market.
