Welcome to Texas A&M Parents’ Weekend
Today is Aggie Ring Day, and marks the beginning of Texas A&M University’s Parents Weekend here in College Station, Texas. Several thousand soon to be Former Students receive rings today. Congratulations!
Normally, it would have to be a football weekend to have so many parents in town. Tents are set up in parking lots selling Aggie T-Shirts, caps and all types of Texas A&M Football “stuff.”
I have some links to the 2012 TAMU Parents Weekend schedule of events, but first I want to share a recent video by Texas A&M, entitled “We Serve.”
College Station weather for 2012 Parents Weekend looks to be good, with partly cloudy skies and highs nearing 90F.
The TAMU Parents’ Weekend Committed has it’s own website with links to a downloadable Parents’ Weekend Schedule and PARKING INFORMATION. I stress the PARKING INFORMATION because, as our students know parking can be difficult here and ticketers will show no mercy. In case you missed that hyperlink, the website address is http://parentsweekend.tamu.edu/.
Texas A&M Student Housing
Parents, while you’re in town consider how investing in housing for your student may be a wise choice. Our market remains relatively stable, with signs of improvement compared to the rest of the country. Also, as long as kids are attending Texas A&M University, there will be a demand for housing, as well as income in our area.
Condominiums are popular, affordable and without the yard and exterior hassles of a house. Many of our student complexes have pools and cookout areas. One of my favorite complexes is Fox Run Condos (http://foxruncondo.com). Located in a semi-rural setting but still within a couple of miles of Kyle Field, this gated complex is quiet and has a nice pool area.
Another complex in the Southwood Valley area is Woodsman Condos (http://woodsmancondo.com). These affordable units have a unique wood flavor. The units in the photos have sold, but there are several others on the market.
We have a staff of several buyer’s agents who are student housing experts, waiting for your call or text or email. They’re prepared to show properties this weekend, while you’re in town. Give us a call at 979-353-0907. If you fall to voicemail, it’s because our agents are on the phone. Please leave a message as it will be transcribed immediately and our agent can see it on his/her screen. We’ll call you back quickly.
Of course you can always search our Multiple Listing Service (MLS) and set up custom search notifications at Search.SamWhiteRealty.com. No need to talk to an agent!
Have a great weekend wherever you are. Drive safely and enjoy the company of family and friends.
