Sun, 25 Jun 2017 by Steve Klein

Georgetown has become a popular destination for tourists and new residents. This has led to an increase in the number of new buyers who are setting their sights on homes in Georgetown TX.

Georgetown was named one of the fastest-growing U.S. cities, ranking fifth according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Georgetown’s growth rate was 5.5 percent between 2015 and 2016. The government statistics were based on populations of 50,000 or more.

Cities in the South tend to grow at a much faster rate than those in other regions of the country. And the latest statistics bear it out, with 10 of the top 15 fastest-growing cities located in southern states, led by Texas with six cities, followed by Florida, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

Georgetown’s growth is a result of the many amenities that it offers to both visitors and residents. The area includes plenty of open spaces, beautiful scenery, and nearby lakes and ponds for you and your family to enjoy. Residents of Georgetown have easy access to the many surrounding attractions and locations, including Inner Space Caverns and Georgetown Palace Theater.

Locals can also take advantage of the Whitney Conservation Preserve, which offers hiking and camping activities. This makes it the perfect location for nature lovers and those who enjoy outdoor activities.

Home buyers can choose from a number of developing communities in Georgetown including MorningStar, Sage Creek, The Preserve at Lake Georgetown, and Enclave at North Lake.

Master-planned communities like these deliver the features that attract home buyers from all over the country. It gives you an opportunity to enjoy life in the renowned Texas Hill Country.

Georgetown’s growth is also a result of its efforts to create a more energy-efficient home for its residents. The city is completely powered by renewable energy, and it’s one of the first U.S. cities to generate electricity from the exclusive use of wind and solar power.

A nearby 160-watt solar farm from SunEdison provides almost half of the city’s electricity. Wind power supplies the remaining electricity. This has made Georgetown the ideal home for energy-conscious home buyers who want to cut down their energy costs and reduce their use of non-renewable energy sources.
