It would be helpful to know specifically the area you were inquiring about, as well as the supply source. If you are asking about Brenham city utilities, then there is plenty of water for homes served by the city. If you are asking about areas served by community water services, then again, I would say all is well. Those wells are deep and access water from deep-laying aquifers. For indiviual wells on rural property, there have been a few issues with shallow wells that are the result of the extended and cyclical drought. Some shallow wells have gone dry, but it is very few and nearly all can simply drill to a deeper depth to get "flowing" again. We all need to be responsible with our water usage. It is the new "liquid gold" -- with water rights being reserved and sold commercially. If you would more specific information, feel free to contact me.... more
It depends on what type of home you want. There are "newish" homes in that price range in the Overlook Estates subdivision. Generally, those homes will have fewer maintenance issues, so would be more suitable for a first-home buyer. However, if you want something older with some character, then you will just have to assess each one on it's own merits. There aren't many new homes and they tend to be priced higher, so unless you felt comfortable increasing your price range, you would probably have to go with a re-sale home.... more
Well, in both neighborhoods homes are built by different builders. I am happy to research homes for you if you are not currently working with a realtor. Brenham is a wonderful place to retire, easy to navigate, good hospitals, great downtown and they are currently enlarging our HEB!
Please do contact me at your convenience. I have lived in the area over thirty years and love getting folks moved to town!
