5 Reasons to Build a Vacation Home in Texas

What comes to mind when you think of a “luxury vacation home“?

Do you imagine a craftsman home on rolling hills settled on a large property? Or a picturesque luxury lakeside custom-built cabin? Or a beautifully constructed luxury home alongside a golf course?

East Texas has it all and much more. Sam Vercher is a custom luxury homebuilder serving Tyler and the surrounding East Texas area. We know the perks of building a home in this beautiful location.

Small-town Texas is a great place to vacation—and build your vacation home.

Rural Towns in East Texas made Homes & Gardens “Top 3 Vacation Home Hotspots in Texas” for the area’s spaciousness and current real estate affordability. Buying your ideal property and building a luxury vacation home in East Texas may now be at its most affordable point. Invest and build now rather than wishing you had.

The region’s proximity to larger cities, with Dallas only 100 miles away, makes East Texas an even more ideal location for a vacation home. You can build your home far enough away from the hustle and bustle to relax in peace and quiet but still close enough to the amenities provided by more urban areas.

Another vacation home perk in ETX is the Inland Lake Areas. Just looking at a map, you can see how many lakes there are in East Texas. Anyone who’s vacationed in a lake region knows it’s a great place to build a vacation home. Besides all the lakes have to offer, there are also towns such as Tyler, Texas, full of history, great restaurants, and fun things for the whole family to do.

Build a luxury vacation home and earn income.

As you can see from a simple Google search, online rentals of luxury vacation homes in East Texas are a booming business. Why not enjoy your luxury vacation home, and make money from it too?

While there are a few costs, from maintenance, listing costs, and management costs, these are easily covered by weekly or nightly rentals. When you rent your luxury vacation home in the months or weeks you’re not using it, the house can quickly pay for itself through rental income.

Before taking that step, however, it’s important to research the zoning codes for rentals in your area.

Consider what you’re willing to pay for a week in a luxury vacation home. Wouldn’t it be better just to build your own?

Have you dreamed of building a craftsman luxury vacation home on a beautiful lake?

East Texas is the perfect location, as it is home to over 50 lakes.

If you’re interested in recreational water activities such as fishing, boating, water skiing, or just relaxing by the calming waves, build your home on one of the dozens of beautiful East Texas inland lakes.

Your dream lake vacation home doesn’t have to be a dream.

East Texas has something for everyone.

Whether you spend days, weeks, or months at your Texas luxury vacation home, you’ll want to build in a location with things to do.

East Texas has activities for everyone to enjoy, whether you’re vacationing single, with a partner, or with the whole family: From hiking, biking, and camping in the piney woods, to visiting the area’s vineyards and wineries, to shopping at The First Monday Trade Days in Canton, to enjoying the Azalea Trail in the Spring, or Texas Road Festival in the Fall…and so much more. You won’t have to worry about anyone getting bored while they’re on vacation.

The popular attractions available in East Texas make it the ideal place to build your luxury vacation home.

Building is better than buying.

While many beautiful luxury vacation homes are available to buy in East Texas, if you design and build your own, you can be sure every detail is how you want your vacation home to look and feel. A place and space to relax and unwind will be different for everyone. Have you always dreamed your vacation home would have a luxury outdoor kitchen? Game room? Pool? Exercise room? Spa?

If you build and furnish your own home, you can be sure it’s a place you can truly come to recharge and go into “vacation mode.” Whether that means enjoying a round of golf, relaxing on a boat next to your lakefront home, or luxuriating in the peace and quiet of a house on a large, quiet property, East Texas has the ideal location for you to design and build your perfect luxury vacation home.
