Hello all, I'm a newbie and this is my first post, but definitely not my last LOL.
Anyway, I'm curious to learn more about this town called Lone Star. Not much info is available on the web...

Wondering if anyone might be able to help me out. I'm looking to either purchase, rent or maybe invest in a property there, but I have no idea what the home or rent values and markets are. From what I can see just browsing and reading articles here and there, it looks like its about a couple hundred miles east of Dallas. Could this be an up and coming city?

Any comments, ideas or insights are greatly appreciated.
Thanks ahead of time =)

Would not be considered Up-and-Coming, just a small little town with a big steel mill and a small church camp or two. I guess if the most recent buyer of the steel mill found the right niche ... things could grow a bit.

Just north of Ore City and south of Daingerfield on Highway 259 in NorthEast Texas. Not much at all in town, but Big Dave did open a new BBQ restaurant there several months back!

35 or 40 miles north of Longview.

Students in Lone Star are in the Daingerfield-Lone Star Independent School District. I think Lone Star does have an elementary campus, but all others go north to Daingerfield schools.

Thanks for the reply.
Do you know how the Housing and Rental markets are there or where I could find out?

I am not sure what type of property or investment you are considering, but would think the residential values would be less than Daingerfield. Commercial property near Lone Star Steel may be a bit higher, but with all the abandoned buildings I wouldn't think they would be that high.

I would check some real estate sites and maybe contact the county (Morris I think). I'll look around a bit.

Your name is koa, Kampgrounds Of America. Travel trailers, cabins, etc.

Realtor dot com has 6 or 7 residential listings that might give you some idea of local availability.
