I sat down with Kendra Hudson, a broker here at TM5, to ask her about the growth she is seeing in south College Station. Here is what she had to say!
Terrence: Why do you think people are moving to south college station?
Kendra: The south part of College Station appeals to people who want a newer home. There are even areas such as; Indian Lakes, Castlegate 2, Castle Rock, etc., where you can build a custom home. In addition, there are also several neighborhoods in the south that offer acreage lots.
Terrence: What makes the area such a good place?
Kendra: Well, things have changed so much in that area. I remember WAY back when the city ended at Rock Prairie. Now there is so much more in the areas south of there. We have new schools, HEB, restaurants opening, healthcare, etc. You can live in that area and not have to drive far at all to do just about anything you need to do on a daily basis.
Terrence: What do you think about it?
Kendra: I really like the southern part of our city. There is a big need for housing for families away from the college students. Not that I don't love college kids...I have one of my own! But, it is nice to live in a neighborhood that has families and professionals. Many of the neighborhoods in south College Station have set up their HOA's to not allow students.
Terrence: What trends are you seeing?
Kendra: I only see growth in that area. When HEB opened on William Fitch, it became the catalyst for all sorts or commercial development. Now people see that area as a convenient, easy to live in area with newer neighborhoods, newer schools, and new places to shop!
