Developers scurry to meet growing
demand for housing in Seguin
Ramping up development after 5+ years of a lackluster housing market doesn't
happen overnight. In Seguin, Texas, where employment growth continued and
unemployment stayed well below state and national averages despite hard times
elsewhere, new housing can't get here fast enough. Fortunately, deals have been
in the works and recent progress has moved them even closer to actual
On Seguin's southeast side along State Highway 123, streets are going in for DR
Horton's new development, The Meadows at Nolte Farms. With a
neighborhood park and close proximity to schools and shopping, the 382-home
neighborhood is expected to appeal to young families and meet an under-served
price-point for first-time homebuyers.
For the first time in this area, DR Horton plans to introduce two "brands," building
both DR Horton and Express Homes in the Meadows at Nolte Farms neighborhood.
Each brand will have its own model home and multiple floor plans. While Seguin
locations have not shown up on the DR Horton and Express Homes websites,
Britney Jones, who markets DR Horton neighborhoods in nearby communities and
soon in Seguin, said a list of interested home buyers has formed in anticipation of
the grand opening.
Across town, developers of Greenspoint received City Council approval for their
master development plan, which will bring approximately 400 homes and
additional retail along the State Highway 46 corridor near Farm to Market Road 78
and Rudeloff Road. Greenspoint plans higher-end housing on larger lots,
developers said. Approval for the development plan, which includes a critical
thoroughfare through the neighborhood, was seen as a key hurdle for moving the
project forward.
Just up SH 46, the Mill Creek subdivision of Perry Homes, is moving into its 11th phase
with new homes going up one after the other toward its eventual build-out of 400
homes. In The Summit , construction steadily moves toward its maximum of 188
higher-end spec and custom homes, with the addition of an additional 23 lots
opening up this year. In the same general area, plans are apparently in the works
for an additional 500 homes. Stay tuned!

growth and its understanding that
progress can't happen without the
infrastructure in place.
