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.
