Texas A&M University – College Station

With a name like “College Station”, you know you’re in a college town. You’re in the land of big trucks, maroon everything, the Dixie Chicken, and the most enthusiastic 45,000 students you’re likely to find anywhere. This is proved also as the city’s largest employment industry is the University itself (employing over 16,000 people). It’s true that the population seems to revolve around the University itself, but with one of the most prestigious student research facilities in the world and an ever expanding university like Texas A&M, the population and consequently the housing market in College Station are on the rise in predictable and promising ways.

Total ESTIMATED cost for one year (fall and spring) for an undergraduate 12th Man who is a resident of Texas taking 15 hours per semester and includes: * Tuition & Fees * Estimated Books * Estimated Room & Board (off campus) * Other Miscellaneous Expenses (e.g., transportation, personal expenses, and late Dixie Chicken nights) Total: $19,035

Real Estate Market in College Station?

The College Station area, home to Texas A & M, is growing while rents and sales soften, say local Realtors. "The Brazos Valley offers plenty of educational and other related amenities such as Texas A&M University, The Texas Real Estate Research Center, Blinn College, and other technical schools," says Realtor Pat M. Butler. "Economic development is growing at an exponential rate, and new businesses are rapidly exploring Bryan/College Station as a potential area to relocate many of theirs." Butler: "The Bryan/College Station real estate market continues to grow at a rapid pace. New homes and new construction on multiple multi-family projects have softened the local rental market over the past nine months. We believe that the rental market will be a become even softer before rents stabilize out over the next 18-24 months. "We have been experiencing a greater supply of residential listings, especially in the $120 - $185K range," advises Butler. "There is currently an over-supply of these properties and that has made it possible for buyers in the price range to seize upon some great opportunities. Starter homes under $120K and still plentiful. Homes under $85K are becoming harder to find because of the rapid appreciation of real estate between 2000-2007."
