Located in Hardin County Texas about 10 miles north of Beaumont, Lumberton is a bedroom community of around 8,700 population. The urban flight from Beaumont make it a perfect destination for new home buyers looking for a better School District.
The Eastex Freeway is the main thoroughfare ( highways 69/96/287) running north and south from Beaumont to Lumberton, making for an easy commute to the jobs located in Beaumont.
New home sales have been good with many home builders operating in this rapidly growing area. Commercial growth in the last 20 years has been above the state average, with new business openings on the rise even in a sagging economy.
Existing homes for sale are rather scarce and are at a premium at this writing, with Silsbee and Kountze being a second choice for home buyers.
The Lumberton Independent School District with its high state of Texas school rating and ever expanding classrooms, is the primary reason for the upswing in the new and existing home sales. Being a rural community, land sales are always at a premium.
In conclusion: It is our opinion that the Lumberton Texas Commercial Real Estate market and the new and existing homes for sale market will continue to grow and expand well beyond the state or even national market. The shopping opportunities are very good with many small merchants from Beaumont opening branches in the area, along with the larger Department Stores. The largely popular Parkdale Mall located in Beaumont is only minutes away. It is truly a great place live in southeast Texas.
