Justin Lindner plans to move to College Station this summer. He may not know much about the town his family will soon call home, but Lindner knows what he is looking for in an apartment.
“One that is safe, one that is big enough to fit my wife and son...and not a million dollars a month,” said Lindner.
With more than 21,000 rental units currently in College Station, there are plenty of options that meet Lindner’s criteria. The problem is finding an apartment community that is also family friendly.
“Someone wanting a nice place and not a student place; there aren't a lot of places to choose from,” said Curtis Davis, realtor at Aggieland Apartment Finders.
However, there are plenty of student apartments available.
“They're over-building in this town,” said Davis. “If we get enough students in the next year or two, then it will be ok. If we don't get more students, then we really need to stop the building.”
College Station officials say there are more housing developments on the way. Seven new apartment communities will be built in the coming years, according to College Station Planning and Development Services
