Many people choose to buy land as an investment for retirement years down the road, but building early can bring significant advantages in the meantime.
More so than any other time of year, summer instills in many the need to get away. Building a second home provides just the escape for a weekend away to take advantage of Bryan-College Station’s local, seasonal activities and the King Oaks residential community amenities.
Available amenities at SouthStar’s King Oaks currently include a fishing pond and an outdoor pavilion for summer picnics with friends and family. Planned amenities include a community pool. As the community is still in early stages of development, prospective land buyers have the opportunity to secure plenty of open land and grow with the community. Local attractions also provide perfect summer activities for all ages, like the fishing, camping, boating, swimming and water sports at Gibbons Creek Reservoir just down the road. With Texas A&M University close by, there is never a shortage of exciting events and activities in Bryan-College Station to discover (or for A&M alumni, rediscover) the camaraderie and charm of the area.
According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), second-home sales account for around 4 out of 10 residential transactions. Nearly half of those buyers intend to use their newly acquired land to build a home for vacation purposes.
Benefits to owning a vacation home include the freedom to visit at a moment’s notice at an unlimited frequency, all while experiencing a personalized level of comfort stemming from the ability to leave belongings that minimize future packing. These years also provide an opportunity to settle into and tailor your new home to best prepare for the approaching retirement years.
