Since I’m a realtor I thought it would be apropos to share a bit about what Bastrop County has to offer by way of real estate. In short, there’s quite a variety … homes on acreage, both large and small, subdivision homes on smallish lots, new homes in subdivisions or on acreage or even large lot subdivisions, homes on open prairie and homes in dense forest, river front property, golf course property, historic homes, older homes, well, you get the picture :-). Lots of kinds of property to choose from.
With all the excellent real estate search sites out there I know you probably already have a favorite for home searches so I won’t try to persuade you to use mine ( you know the one up on the menu bar right above this 😉 ). Just remember I’m around and my good buddy Mary Ellen Franklin is around to unlock doors and talk real estate whenever you’re ready … no rush at all. If you’re thinking of buying but are unsure about the financing part I can put you in touch with an excellent mortgage broker. He can help you work thru the details so you will quickly know where you stand.
Okay, let’s get started!
It’s hard to choose just how to categorize it so let’s just go by area.
The City of Bastrop and it’s immediate surroundings
Bastrop is one of Texas’s oldest cities. Why it was even around during the Civil War!
