When looking to buy land, most choose between a large selection for a cheaper price in the countryside, or instead go for an expensive but smaller option closer to the city. Both of these are available throughout South Texas. Although the city life can seem more ideal, looking into a beautiful lot of land just minutes out in the open does have its advantages.
Peace and Quiet
The city can bring pollution, noisy neighbors and many rules and regulations on what you can and can’t do. Instead of being restricted, go for an option where you’ll have room for your trailer or mobile home, and have the peace and quiet of the countryside.
Living away from the city can have you appreciating the great outdoors with space for you to run and play with the kids. Also, the countryside has a slower pace. Instead of constantly being overwhelmed, the large amounts of space, less traffic and lower living costs can have you and your family relaxed and stress free.
When away from the city, your family can also find cheaper prices for land. For example, a half-acre of land could cost you around $32,900, but in the city, it can cost over $50,000! With these savings, your family can buy almost double the amount for the same price.
Santa Cruz Properties has half to 10-acre-sized tracts, and they’re lower than any city price. If your family is looking for just enough land for a house or mobile home, or if you want acres and acres of land for your animals, our professional and friendly customer service team will help you find what you need.

Septic Tanks vs. Sewer Systems
A septic tank consists of two parts, the tank and the drain field. The septic tank is a watertight box usually made of concrete or fiberglass. Connected to the septic tank is an inlet and outlet pipe to drain any sewage. Public sewer systems are provided by the city and are carried out by pipes that drain sewage into a landfill. Public sewer systems charge a monthly fee for their use while septic tanks have no monthly fee.
Septic tanks are a homeowner’s responsibility, and with proper maintenance, can save money in the long run. When looking into buying land, it’s important to check with the seller about the type of sewage system that’ll be available. When buying land with Santa Cruz Properties, one of the perks is that all residential lots come with utilities and a septic tank.
