This is a new duplex listing at 817 Allen Street in San Marcos, Texas.  Located close to Texas State University, downtown San Marcos, Wonderworld Caverns and the San Marcos River, it is a great investment opportunity for someone looking for rental income or the owner-occupant wishing to offset his/her mortgage by leasing the other side. Each side of the two-story duplex has over 1,000 square feet, 2 bedrooms, 1 upstairs bath and 1 downstairs half bath. This picture is taken from the stairs landing looking into the living room, dining area and kitchen.

  Should I buy a home in San Marcos for my Texas State University student? I work with many buyers in San Marcos Texas who are in the market to purchase a property for their college student.  Does it always make sense?  Here are my suggestions of things to consider when investing in real estate in San Marcos. 1. Evaluate the market.  More than likely you will own the property for 4-5 years while your student is attending the university so find out if it will make sense to buy instead of renting.  Consider not just the entire city of San Marcos, but the surrounding areas, as well.  Remember all real estate is local.  The housing market where you live is not the San Marcos market. San Marcos is in the Austin metro area, which has the highest overall housing costs in Texas. Within the cit...

Investment property in San Marcos Texas cannot be compared to investment property in most other cities.  Why is it different (and uniquely beneficial to investors)? San Marcos is a vibrant college town in the sub market of the Austin - Round Rock MSA. The 2010 US census estimates that there are currently 44,894 people living in San Marcos. The total student enrollment at Texas State University - San Marcos for fall semester 2010 was 32,586. Keep reading for the secret that makes investment property in San Marcos a hidden treasure for investors. Obviously not all of the students at the University live in San Marcos and some that do, live in dormitories. Having said that, the bulk of the student population (and the population of the entire city) are students renting off-campus housing uni...

Fun things to do in San Marcos, on the river. If you have never been to San Marcos TX, you probably can't appreciate the shear natural treasure that we have here in our spring fed river that runs through the heart of the city and campus at Texas State University - San Marcos. The river is aptly named, "The San Marcos River." It is spring fed (so it is very pure and clear) and it stays a constant 72 degrees Fahrenheit, year round (steam rises from the water in the winter). So it is very refreshing for swimming, and not too cold. It is always rated in the top 10 fresh water rivers in the country for marine biology and every year the "Texas Water Safari - "worlds toughest canoe race" starts at the river head in San Marcos and goes all the way to the gulf of Mexico (260 miles). One of my fu...

I recently joined another Board: SMABOR® San Marcos Area Board of REALTORS® and went to my new member orientation this morning. Met some really nice folks. Professional presentation by Amy DuBose, SMABOR® Association Executive, but missed the 'welcome' by Holly Morris, SMABOR® President.  SMABOR® is a relatively small Board, but if the folks I met today is any indication, I'm really going to like this group.

San Marcos TX Residential Real Estate Market Report for 3rdQTR, July through August 2010.  Information gathered from NavicaMLS and  prepared by Laurie Jarrett, San Marcos TX Realtor®.   San Marcos saw some change in the 3rd Quarter of 2010 in the housing market.  59 residential homes were sold between July and September 2010.  Less homes sold than in the 2ndQTR of 2010 and the 3rd QTR of 2009 and this could be due largely in part to the expiration of the federal tax credit for first time home buyers. This QTR there was a slight increase in the median sales price and decrease in sales price per square foot over the 2nd QTR. The sales price to listing price was also less than in previous quarters. However, properties stayed on the market almost two weeks LESS than in previous quarters.  T...

San Marcos is the home of Texas State University, which was formally know as Southwest Texas State University. The university has grown from 303 students in 1903 to a whopping 29,105 students in 2008. Higher education is not the only thing San Marcos has to offer. The city is also known for the outlet mall.

San Marcos, Texas, which is 29 miles south of Austin and 47 miles northwest of San Antonio, is a beautiful, small city with a rich history. The San Marcos area is considered to be the oldest continuously inhabited site in the Northern Hemisphere, although the descendants of today's residents settled the area in the 1800s. In 1689, the San Marcos River was named for St. Mark after Alonso de Leon's men discovered the river on the celebration of St. Mark's Day, and named the river in his honor. Later, in April of 1808, a group of Mexican families settled in the area, and an agricultural community was established shortly thereafter. In 1812, after numerous floods and raids by local Indians, the settlement was disbanded, but in November of 1848 a group of Anglo settlers tried to establish a ...

Hays County Commissioner Jeff Barton said it will be dedicated to state operations in education."They bought it for the school children of Texas really to help pay future state operations in education," Barton said.Could be a prime opportunity for those who are ready to buy. I will keep you up to date on what is happening in San Marcos just 25 Minutes from beautiful Austin Texas.
