We have many outstanding communities slated for the future! Take a look at future development here in the Katy/Richmond/Fulshear, Texas area.
By being a Katy, Texas, Realtor, my team and I have the privilege of working with many buyers relocating to the Houston area from not only all throughout the United States but worldwide. Do you know what drives these buyers to Katy? The number one priority on a buyers mind is SCHOOLS. This isn’t just a top priority of families moving to Katy, Texas. Overall, the majority of buyers whether they have kids or not see the importance in living a community with award winning educational facilities and educators. Katy’s premier schools go hand in hand with a safe community and a booming economy, and as you know this helps to keep property values high.
On November 5th, Katy Voters will decide on the Katy ISD Bond. This is a $99 million dollar proposal which would fund an agriculture complex, STEM Center, and a new stadium. If this bond passes, the tax rate will not increase for Katy Tax Payers. In short, Katy’s growth and the new revenues that have come from this, make any tax increase unnecessary.
Yesterday we had a huge turn out for our Lakes of Bella Terra Broker’s Open event!
