The great thing about Paso is that there seems to be someplace that fits everyone there. If you are looking for a gated community with larger lots and big homes, we have that. If you are looking for a large new home with great neighbors, we have that too. If you are an older active adult looking for like minded people, we have that too.
I would say that in the new homes there is a range of sizes as well as amenities, which works when accomodating the diverse population living and moving here. The other thing to consider is that there are definitely homes that are just a few years old that have the nice granite countertops and hardwood floors that have only been lived in a couple of years that are on the market as resales.
I think as far as desirability, there are definitely areas that are older and more crowded. There are also the outskirts of Paso that some people find less desirable just because of their distance to the center of town, but then there are some who love the outskirts because they want the larger lots or they want to live closer to the wineries. It really depends on what industry you are in and what you want in a home.
If you are getting a job transfer and your company is affiliated with the Cartus program, our company, Coldwell Banker is also a Cartus affiliate.
If you would like to call or email to discuss what you want from a home, I would love to start a dialogue about what is available. There are so many options and I really believe educating yourself about not only the market but the market conditions is imperative when buying a house.
