Why Buy A Lake Conroe Home Now?

The Lake Conroe area is one of the fastest growing regions in the nation! A recent U.S. Census Bureau report showed the area’s population grew by 4.01 percent for the year ending July 1, 2012, making it the 10th fastest growing municipality in the nation among cities (726) with a population of at least 50,000.

Likewise, home builders and Realtors are especially busy building and selling homes. There’s plenty of land, quality neighborhood developments, excellent schools, and jobs to boot. And since interest rates are still low, (remember the early ‘80’s 18 percent mortgage rates?) home sales are booming.

As a result home values are steadily rising.

Put all this together with a highly acclaimed place to live – Lake Conroe – and you have the decision made for you! Now is the time to buy a home around Lake Conroe.

Conroe and Lake Conroe was just selected as one of the top five most exciting places to live in Texas. WOW! Dallas folks were not too happy about the selection but you can’t argue with the data. So how do you measure “Exciting”?

The Houston Chronicle cited a study done by a well known national Real Estate blog, Motovo.com, listing the ten most exciting places in Texas. They judged the top 100 most populated cities by the following criteria:

  • Nightlife per capita (bars, clubs, comedy, etc.)
  • Live music venues per capita
  • Active life options per capita (parks, outdoor activities, etc.)
  • Fast Food restaurants per capita (the fewer the better)
  • Percentage of restaurants that are not fast food (the higher the better)
  • Percentage of young residents ages 18 to 34 (the higher the better)

Galveston placed number 1, followed by Austin and Houston. Then followed Conroe. Imagine the shock of Dallas folks getting beat by lowly Lake Conroe! Well, Lake Conroe is not so lowly any more.
