With a New Year brings new resolutions, new goals, and new expectations. The same goes for TM5 Properties. At TM5, we are always looking for ways to provide the best information and technology to our customers and clients. TM5 has added several new features to our TM5 Properties Website to provide the most up to date market information and to make it as user friendly as possible.
I want to highlight the new “Land” tab that we have added to our website. If you’re looking for an easy way to find residential neighborhood lots, farm and ranch land, or simply want to see what your land is worth, you have come to the right place. Once in the land listings, you can select which price range you would like to view. You can easily click through to see all the current land listings in the Brazos Valley.
The primary purpose for individuals purchasing land around the Brazos Valley has been for investment, recreation, and use as weekend retreats. Burleson County, Grimes County, Madison County, and the east sector of Robertson County are gaining in popularity as land for sale becomes harder to find. However, Brazos and Grimes Counties continue to account for the higher priced land. Land is a hot commodity for many reasons but, as stated by Will Rogers, “They aren’t making any more of it.”
