Default Fredericksburg

Hello all. I just took a trip to Fredericksburg a week ago. Was pretty nice but very brown due to the winter. I was wondering if anyone has pics of what the area looks like during spring, summer and fall? I would greatly appreciate it. I was also wondering what the risk is of living in the country due to the hunting that goes around. I would hate to be hit by a stray bullet while on a hike.

As long as you don't ride cross country under the deer feeders, the chance is about nil. There are a couple of threads about FBurd, but not sure if there are pics....

They also recommend you wear bright colors so you can be easily seen.

I wouldn't worry about this too much. Most hunters do their hunting on private land, which you wouldn't be hiking on since you're most likely not a trespasser.

The only time you'd encounter hunters would be on public land - i.e. a national forest - between November and January. Not really a concern, I'd imagine.

The internet has many photos of the Fredericksburg area. Just google Fredericksburg, Texas and look at some of the images. I can assure you, they will be quite colorful and lovely.

Is there any affordable housing (new construction) under $160,000? I have looked online but unable to find any.

Not in FB proper, that is for sure. You might find some houses in that appraisal range, but most are sitting on land that is worth that much again. As a 'typical' development, I think of 'Triple Creek', which is about 5 miles north of town. These house are on 5 acres or so each, and probably sell in the 400k to 500k range (~175$/ft). Not sure how much the land is now, but my folks built one of the first houses out there (they have since sold and moved), but they built it for ~80$/ft (not considering land cost). Assuming the house is now valued at ~100$/ft, then the land alone is worth 200-250k.

There are very few 'developments' - mostly individual homes being built. There are a couple, though. I think there is one on or about Lower Crabapple Rd. I expect that it is in the same price range as triple Creek, although they are maybe smaller lots, so may be a little less overall. Even further out, it is VERY hard to get small parcels of land. Moderate land parcels (10-25 acres) will be priced from 8k to 20k acre, depending on location, land quality, and size (the bigger parcels are cheaper per acre). 12k/acre ~15 miles out of town with a 10 acre minimum size is probably not a bad benchmark, although terribly general.

FB is not known for being affordable .
