Stinnett, located in the Texas panhandle is the county seat of Hutchinson county. Founded in 1925, when A.S. Stinnett and Joe Williams, two railroad men, needed a right-of-way for the train line form Amarillo Texas to Liberal Kansas, that Stinnett became the Hutchinson County seat. It was here they decided to establish the community because of its close proximity to the Canadian River.
Stinnette offers that out of the way lifestyle but it certainly isn’t out in the boon docks. Located just 50 minutes from Amarillo, this small town community offers the best of both worlds. Residents enjoy the benefits of their small town community but also have easy highway access to a larger city for work, shopping and more.
Hunting and fishing sportsmen find Stinnett the idea location as the red river and proximity to Lake Meredith make it an ideal boating and fishing location.
Real Estate Market: Another plus to this community is the affordable housing options. This small town offers homes that start as low as $35,000, although the average home price ranges from about $48,000 to $60,000 which is very affordable. This makes the area a viable option for families wishing to get away from the city, or for investors.
Most homes in the area are single family homes sitting on large lots, giving residents lots of space. Still, this is a small community, so there are only a few homes on the market at any given time. By the same token, many of these homes are older, built in the 19 so it’s important to get a Stinnett Tx Appraisal before making any final decision.
