Some homes are also close to train tracks, which can also raise issues. New construction in the area can pose quality issues. Development is still quite uneven, so while homes in some areas/communities can sell for a premium, others will sell at a discount.

“We were new to TX and I wrote an inquiry about 55+ communities, Brad Evans happened to answer my inquiry. I can’t say enough about his knowledge and expertise, he is a top notch realtor. We purchased a house with Brad’s help, but unfortunately had to pull out of the deal because there were structural issues. Brad stuck with us through everything, including finding a rental and then finding our forever house. He was always accessible, responded timely and worked incredibly hard to support us in every way possible. I can’t say enough good words for Brad - he was a true professional for us.” - Betsy Torrence (Google Review)
