Southeast Texas Commercial Real Estate Barometer – Is Kountze Next?

On today’s Southeast Texas Commercial Real Estate News, we examine the commercial property Southeast Texas Commercial Real Estate Cover 1environment in Kountze, the county seat of Hardin County Tx.

If you’ve grown up in Southeast Texas, you probably remember Lumberton as a tiny bump in the road between Silsbee and Beaumont.

Over the past two decades Lumberton has seen unprecedented growth, and it continues to accelerate across all real estate sectors- commercial, light industrial, and residential.

Lumberton has been blessed with brand new branch offices for national and Southeast Texas banks and credit unions. They’ve been able to build beautiful new schools. Fortunes have been made selling family farms and timber property and by those who developed those properties into neighborhoods and retail parks.

Lumberton is definitely a city on the rise.

With that, property values are rising and some proactive commercial developers and contractors are looking for fresh markets.

Today’s SETX commercial real estate question – is Kountze next?

Kountze Tx Commercial Property

If you’re looking to build a light industrial facility, a strip mall, or other commercial project in Hardin County, is Kountze a desirable area for you?

Kountze property owners are already seeing a spike in interest and prices from commercial developers.

Locally owned businesses have invested in new or dramatically remodeled buildings in the community including:

  • State Farm agent Lauri Thompson has built a charming office space where she and her team can take care of Big Thicket clients like neighbors.
  • Worsley of Kountze Dental Center spent months renovating and beautifying his new location in the center of Kountze on Highway 69.
  • Margie Hall has grown M&M Embroidery in a newer retail strip on Hwy 69. They stay very busy doing logo shirts, hats, and promotional items for local businesses and youth sports teams.

Kountze has a small downtown, but it is seeing activity. The Hardin County Museum is open. The County Seat Music Hall is bringing live music (bluegrass, country, gospel) to downtown. Kirby Hill House offers a number of live events each year. All of the commercial buildings around the court house are occupied, housing title companies, attorneys, and bail bondsmen. Bustling would be an exaggeration, but downtown Kountze is definitely growing.

Church health has also long been a great economic indicator across Southeast Texas. Cornerstone Baptist Church in Kountze points to an economy on the rise. They’ve gone to two services on Sunday and are still growing. They have a great new building, but are already looking at the possibility of needing additional space.

Kountze Commercial Real Estate Environment

Kountze also offers Southeast Texas “Kountze Trade Days” and the “Hardin County Music Festival”. Both have seen ups and downs but have the potential to continue growing significantly.

Kountze has a lot going for it.

The community is perched on the desirable 69 Corridor, a vital artery for petroleum and timber products.

Kountze is already the county seat, so there is a certain level of business that has to be done there.

While land properties are starting to rise, they are still a bargain when compared to Lumberton. One key will be to attract a couple of keystone businesses to Kountze while prices are attractive that others will want to build around.

If you own or are the realtor for property in and around Kountze, you could be headed for a payday.

Based on what we’re seeing it certainly looks like Kountze is poised to see at least a healthy portion of the growth Lumberton is already experiencing.

Current indicators suggest, “Kountze is next”.
