Lakeside Conroe is being built just north of Highway 105 on Crescent Cove Drive in Montgomery and will ultimately include up to 169 single-family homes and 140 duplexes, ranging from 1,979 square feet to 2,426 square feet. Some of the homes will be built along the Lake Conroe waterfront.
Why build to rent? The idea, says Edison Park developer Wan Bridge, an outfit with presences in Houston and Dallas, is to offer the home life to a young, aspiring Millennial market while alleviating landscaping and home maintenance.
In mid-June, Wan Bridge Group introduced two of their six new patio homes in Edison Park, south of the Galleria off of Glenmont Drive and South Rice Avenue. It’s just north of the city limits of Bellaire, where new homes sell for more than a million.
The allure of owning a home has always been attractive and a pillar of the “success” story for the American dream, but is buying really the wisest decision anymore? Of course, this depends on your lifestyle and financial health, but Wan Bridge wants you to inform you that buying immediately isn’t always the best route.
