Imagine the future of real estate and how it is evolving. The real estate market has been on a steady rise in the last few years. With Lubbock’s growing population and new businesses, the real estate market is said to continue to be more steady. Houses are becoming more and more affordable, especially for first time home buyers. People in their early 20’s are buying first time homes, whereas 10 years ago, people weren’t buying their first home until their 30’s. Improvements in the Lubbock area have significantly increased the real estate market in this area and it will only continue to increase.
