I do quite a bit of work in 78745, and the new construction of the apartment complex is most likely perceived as a negative. Having said that, if the lot is positioned where the complex activity, noise, etc. is hardly noticed, you may be able to get a nice deal on a place you can call home.
Please feel free to contact me anytime for a no obligation consultation with regard to your home search in 78745. In addition, please feel free to visit my website where there is a quick link on the home page for all available homes in this zip.
If you need someone to work through some of this stuff, I am available. I can get you more information regarding this specific property or other homes that may fit your criteria.
It depends what exactly is being built. If it's an apartment with new retail shopping, a bar/restaurant and a cafe, that's probably a good improvement.
A generic complex may reduce the desirability of your property.
If you think you are interested in selling your house, please let me know. I have a 100% success rate with my sales listings, and I'd love to help you out if you'd like.
