5 Reasons Suburban Life Beats City Living
Tuesday, November 13, 2018
Living in the city offers a great lifestyle for some, whether it’s Millennials who are just starting out and renting their first apartment, or empty nesters who want to be close to arts and culture now that the kids are gone. For many people, though, the benefits of suburban life offer major advantages over living in town.
RISMedia’s Housecall blog recently called out these 5 benefits of suburban living. For our own blog, we look at them from the perspective of living in Teravista, offering an unbeatable location that combines the best of Round Rock and Georgetown.
More square footage for your money. “When compared to the average city home, a house in the suburbs will usually provide far more square footage for the money,” states Housecall. With new homes priced from the low $300,000s, Teravista offers detached, single-family homes with nice backyards for the dog. In addition to space, Teravista’s new homes offer the latest technologies, and our builders are some of the largest and most respected companies in Central Texas.
Less noise and pollution. “For some people, there’s nothing like falling asleep to the sound of trains, freeway traffic, and outside conversations,” writes Housecall. For the rest of us, there’s life in the suburbs, especially in master-planned communities like Teravista, which offer strong protections and the ability to see into the future with their long-range plans and visions. Homesites with views of trails, ponds and other scenic features add even more peace and relaxation to life here.
Top-rated schools. “Whether or not you intend to have kids, it’s important to look for property in neighborhoods with top-rated schools,” says Housecall. Indeed, there is ample evidence of a strong correlation between schools and property values. Teravista is part of two highly regarded school districts, and Georgetown ISD’s Carver Elementary School is located near some of Teravista’s final neighborhoods.
Enjoy Living in a Tight-Knit Community. In the city, “neighborhoods tend to have higher turnover rates, and residents have much less opportunity to forge long-lasting bonds and establish a strong sense of community,” states Housecall. The opposite is true at Teravista, and it doesn’t happen by accident. The community has amenities and activities that bring residents together throughout the year.
Take an Active Role in Community. “If you love democracy and want to start taking a more active role in the development and maintenance of your community,” Housecalls writes. Communities like Teravista have active Homeowners’ Associations, or HOAs, that offer residents opportunities to get involved.
Recreational amenities and natural open space are another advantage of living in a master-planned community like Teravista. Learn more about resident life and final opportunities to own a new home in our award-winning community.
