Illinois Farmland to Texas Hill Country

IL farmland to TX retirement


"Use your resources," they say

They called from Illinois inquiring about the fast-paced land sales and the popular discussion of “retiring in the Texas Hill Country.”

There’s something about searching for property in our Texas Hill Country that many don’t think of. And when it comes to retirement, my clients are naturally downsizing, leading to a trickier search.

They want the privacy of land and the secluded evenings watching Texas sunsets….but they don’t want the massive acreage.

Given the history of land acquisition in the Texas Hill Country, much of the acreage is held by the families of our settlers. It’s not super common to come across an unrestricted parcel under 15 acres – that is because, when the families decide to sell, they are selling off larger acreage tracts – which often are picked up by developers.

But! This does not mean your 5 acre land search is bound to crazy HOA’s and resort-style communities. While that’s perfection for many, it’s what many others want to steer clear from. Different developers create different developments – and one of my favorite comes straight from my originating Real Estate bubble.

And that is how my clients received first pick in this minimally-restricted development of Loma Vista.

First pick, means best views, best tree coverage, best elevation, best lot! And they got the lot with one of the approved test wells – that’s a $20k right there!

Congratulations Andersonn Family on your closing of your Hill Country retirement spot! I look forward to the next step of building that retirement dream retreat.
