Where to Buy Residential Land in Texas

Articles

Published on Friday, February 06, 2015 by Land Century

Everything is bigger in Texas – and land is no exception. No other state has more privately-owned land than Texas, making it a prime state for investors to purchase land in. In fact, only 5% of the land in the Lone Star State is government owned. And as the biggest state in the lower 48, you certainly have a lot of land to choose from. So, where are the best places to find Texas residential land for sale?

Where to Find Land for Sale in Texas


You don’t have to look far to find prime residential lots for sale in the Lone Star State. And you’ll find lots of acreage in Texas too. With more than 15.77 billion acres of habitable land in the state, knowing where to buy land can be a challenge. Wondering how to buy land in Texas? Let’s take a look at the state’s most popular regions.

North Texas


Most cities in North Texas are within a few hours’ drive of the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex, which a major economic driving force for the state. You’ll find two major rivers in DFW: Brazos and Trinity. Land values in this area continue to appreciate thanks to continued urban growth.

Land prices in North Dallas and cities north of the city, like Plano, will be exceptionally pricey, but you’re sure to find more reasonable prices in other surrounding cities like Arlington or Lewisville. These lots are ideal for residential purposes, but don’t expect to buy lots with several acres.

Central Texas


With rolling hills and ample water, land buyers love Central Texas. Hill Country is conveniently located near two of the state’s biggest cities: Austin and San Antonio. You’re also just a few hours’ drive away from Houston and Dallas. Mason or Kimble Counties are your best bets when looking for land deals in the central part of the state.

West Texas


Looking for vacant Texas acres of land? Head on out to West Texas. Here, you’ll find wide open spaces and Texas’s largest state park: Big Bend Ranch State Park. Guadalupe Mountains National Park is also out west by the Rio Grande River and El Paso. Acreage out here sells for dirt cheap, but do your research before buying. Residential land may be harder to flip.

The Panhandle


The Panhandle, the northernmost tip of Texas, is home to sprawling plains and is just a short drive from Colorado. This area of the state is home to some of the largest American ranches in the country, like the 3 million acre XIT ranch. You’ll find plenty of land in the Llano Estacado and Palo Duro Canyon areas of the Panhandle.

The Gulf Coast


In Southern Texas, you’ll find some of the largest cattle ranches in America. This region of the state surrounds the Wild Horse Desert and is a prime spot for hunting.

Of course, you’ll also find the beautiful Gulf Coast in the southernmost part of the state. If you’re looking for residential land, waterfront lots in this area are prime locations. Corpus Christi, Laredo and Houston are just a few of the cities you’ll find land in.

Research is Key


If you plan on buying residential land in Texas, you need to make sure that you do your research beforehand. You’ll find land in any one of the regions above, and your investment can provide you with a great return. But you still need to consider growth in the area as well as the local housing market. There are many rural areas in Texas, and not all of them are ideal for residential land investments.

Areas just outside major cities like San Antonio, Austin, Dallas and Houston are smart choices. These cities are the major economic driving forces for the state, and as urban growth continues, demand for land in those areas will continue to rise.

But again, some areas – even in or near these cities – are better than others. Consider access, whether or not utilities are already on-site, and if the land is even buildable. Lots that are easily accessible and already have utility lines on the property are a much better choice than vacant, raw land that’s difficult to access.

With billions of acres of land in Texas, you’re sure to find a residential lot that suits your needs and your budget if you dedicate a little time to research.
