Benefits of living in the suburbs: Part one


Texas Homesites is dedicated to providing you with the best land for sale in Texas. We have unique and exclusive communities throughout Texas. Most of our master-planned communities are located outside of some of the biggest metropolitan areas in Texas, including Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio. There are many benefits of living in the suburbs that surround these cities:

  • Homes. It is no secret that homes in a city’s outskirts or suburbs are more affordable than homes located downtown. Suburban homes are more spacious and provide more freedom for your active lifestyle. Living in the suburbs is cost-effective because the land is cheaper, and there is more of it.
  • Great schools. Schools in the city often have a higher teacher-to-student ratio than some suburban schools. Having classes with fewer students allows the teacher to spend more time with students and make sure that they get the education they deserve. Our community in Gunter, The Bridges at Preston Crossings, is home to one of the best school districts in the state, the Gunter Independent School District.
  • Low crime. When you are looking for somewhere safe to raise your family, many families choose the suburbs. The city is often much more dangerous and not nearly as safe as the suburbs. Statistically, a more concentrated population (as in the city) translates into more crime.
  • Big-city conveniences. No matter which Texas Homesites community you decide works best for you, there are big-city conveniences near all of our master-planned communities. It is wonderful to be located outside of a major city that you can visit for major sporting events, concerts, shows, attractions, famous restaurants, and great shopping. However, living in the suburbs gives you the best of both worlds because you have access to big-city conveniences and are able to maintain a better quality of life.

Texas Homesites is dedicated to serving you with the best land that Texas has to offer. Our master-planned communities are affordable and located in some of the most desirable locations in all of Texas. Texas Homesites wants every family to have their dream home.
