Relocation is more than just buying a new house in another state—it’s starting a new chapter in you and your family’s life. As such, choosing which town or city to live is one of the most important considerations you have to think about. If you’re eyeing Texas as your new home state, financial expert Kiplinger says that College Station is one city you should definitely check out:
An annual ranking of the best parts of the country has Bryan/College Station third overall.
“Each year we take a look at America’s cities and choose those that stand out in a particular category—say, for raising a family, starting out after college or enjoying retirement,” said the editor of Kiplinger’s, Janet Bodnar, in a press release issued by both cities. […]
“I’m delighted Kiplinger’s recognized us as a great place to live,” College Station Mayor Nancy Berry added. “Of course, it’s no secret to those who call College Station home. We’re a safe city, have great parks and amenities, super schools and a wonderful arts community; plus, we’re home to Texas A&M University. Add it up and you’re living in one of the greatest places in the country.”
As Mayor Berry states, College Station offers all its residents a high quality of living. College Station is one of the most diverse cities in the country, owing to the international influence of Texas A&M, which attracts over 5,000 students from 120 countries. In other words, families looking for College Station real estate properties will find the area a welcoming place to live in, regardless of their cultural backgrounds.
Speaking of schools, the city’s educational system has also garnered national awards for the quality of teaching they offer. In the 2008-2009 school year alone, the College Station Independent School District received 21 citations from the National Merit Scholarship Program. This means you won’t need to look far to find a great school for your young ones.
College Station also offers a host of recreational activities for people to indulge in. Book lovers, for one, can read all they want in the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum. Outdoorsy types, on the other hand, can enjoy the city’s many parks, bike paths, and nature trails.
Of course, buying a home—especially out of state—is no easy task. As such, it’s best to work with College Station, TX real estate experts like The Traditions Realty Team to help you find the perfect house in this wonderful city.
