When you and your family looks for land in South Texas, one of the first places you might want to look is in McAllen. This city is one of the most popular of the Rio Grande Valley. Although it does have a lot of activities, restaurants and big events, McAllen is also very busy with expensive land. An acre can easily cost you $85,000 or more! Why spend so much on a small plot of land when you can buy double the amount for the same price with Santa Cruz Properties?
