5 Great Reasons to Live in San Marcos TX

August 15, 2020 3:41 pm

Homes in San Marcos TX are selling fast thanks to the area’s growing popularity. New residents continue to flock to this city southwest of Austin, and it’s easy to see why.

  1. The city is ideally located halfway between Austin and San Antonio.
  2. Outdoor attractions abound. The centerpiece is the sparkling clean San Marcos River. It’s the perfect setting for canoeing, kayaking, tubing and swimming. The city also maintains 1,200 acres of parks and natural areas.
  3. Higher education campuses and cultural attractions are close by in San Marcos as well as in Austin and San Antonio.
  4. A thriving craft brewery scene complements the wide variety of restaurants in the area.
  5. Affordable new homes are available in master planned communities with lots of amenities.

Situated at Posey Road and I-35, TRACE is a large community with more than 1,000 new home sites. The community boasts the Presidio Amenity Center with a resort-style pool, shaded picnic tables, sand volleyball and sports courts. There’s even a new elementary school on site.
