Investing in Land: Summer Value of a Second Home in New Braunfels

Many people choose to buy land as an investment for retirement years down the road, but building early can bring significant advantages in the meantime.

More so than any other time of year, summer instills in many the need to get away. Building a second home provides just the escape for a weekend away to take advantage of New Braunfels’ local, seasonal activities and the Havenwood at Hunter’s Crossing residential community amenities.

Available amenities at SouthStar’s Havenwood include a swimming complex, private park with walking trails and basketball, tennis and volleyball courts. The community’s Family Reunion Pavilion is aptly named for its space for friends and family gatherings. Local attractions also provide perfect summer activities for all ages, like New Braunfels’ Schlitterbahn and the nearby city of Gruene. Havenwood is located right off the Texas Wine Trail, with great Texas wines just a short drive away.

According to the National Association of Realtors (NAR), second-home sales account for around 4 out of 10 residential transactions. Nearly half of those buyers intend to use their newly acquired land to build a home for vacation purposes.

Benefits to owning a vacation home include the freedom to visit at a moment’s notice at an unlimited frequency, all while experiencing a personalized level of comfort stemming from the ability to leave belongings that minimize future packing. These years also provide an opportunity to settle into and tailor your new home to best prepare for the approaching retirement years.
