Growth in the Lubbock area real estate market has generally enjoyed a steady increase over the last several years. Lubbock generally doesn't experience the massive increase/decrease of volume and sales in real estate that some other areas of the state experience. One major factor that continues to help our area experience this steady growth is Texas Tech University. Texas Tech is by far the largest single employer in our area, and along with the Ag industry and the Health Care industry, Tech generates millions of dollars in tax revenue for Lubbock and the surrounding communities.
The school year begins anew in a few short weeks.
Red Raider orientation is August 16-29, 2015. Per the Texas Tech website: "Red Raider Orientation (RRO) is an opportunity for new students to learn about Texas Tech University and the programs and services offered. Red Raider Orientation was designed to guide each new student at Texas Tech to success. While at RRO, students will get the chance to meet other new students, get advice from current students, meet with an advisor, register for classes, learn new Texas Tech traditions, and have fun!"
We are blessed in Lubbock and the South Plains to have Texas Tech students and faculty call our area home. For more information, visit www.ttu.edu.
