Singles travel from places like Austin and San Antonio to take advantage of Edinburg’s lower cost of living and strong choices for education and careers.

Edinburg’s Excellent Economy
Edinburg’s economic growth has outpaced the national rate for the past several years in a row. Residents have strong job choices, with educational services, health care, and retail employing the largest percentage of the city’s workforce. Plus, Texas doesn’t have a state income tax, so workers keep more of every paycheck than people making the same amount in other states.
In some states, residents are stuck inside for long periods at a time and outdoor activities are unavailable. People who own new homes in Edinburg never have to worry about the chance of snow damage to their roof. They can spend as much time enjoying state parks or outdoor sports in January as they do in June.
Top-Notch Healthcare Choices
The two biggest demographic groups looking at new homes in Edinburg are families with children and retirees moving to Texas. For both groups, healthcare is essential. Edinburg’s award-winning medical facilities include the following:
- Edinburg Regional Medical Center
- South Texas Behavioral Health System
- Standalone Emergency Care Facilities

- Doctor’s Hospital at Renaissance

Russell Park – Best Choice for New Homes in Edinburg
Russell Park is a thoughtfully planned community in the heart of Edinburg off Highway 281 and Russell Road. If you’re looking for new homes for sale in Edinburg, TX, it’s quite simply the best choice.
With new construction, you often hear about small mistakes and big disasters that go unnoticed, then cost the homeowner in the long run. WestWind Homes is one of the few production builders in the area who hires an independent, third-party inspector to complete an in-depth inspection for every single home we build. We’ve been doing it for decades, so our crews have learned how to avoid the most common mistakes. Having an independent set of eyes examine every property ensures you get a home built to last a lifetime.
Once you move in, your new home is covered by a homeowner’s warranty, but sometimes you need help outside of normal business hours. We don’t expect you to wait an entire holiday weekend to get help for an air conditioner that quits in the heat of summer or a plumbing leak that leaves you without water.
Instead, we make our customer care team available to you around the clock. They’ll respond to your call within 30 minutes, walk you through possible solutions and, if needed in an emergency, be on site within an hour.
Russell Park’s new homes in Edinburg all have access to walking trails that lead to the Boy’s & Girl’s Club, IDEA Public Schools, and the nearby sports grounds.
What Makes WestWind’s New Homes in Edinburg So Affordable
If you know anyone who has ever built a home they told you two things – it’s stressful, and it’s expensive. Often the most stressful part of building a new home is the high cost of building materials and labor.
Some builders only build a few homes a year. They use local vendors and hardware stores, and those places give them a small builder’s discount. They also use subcontractors whose fees vary based on the size and scope of the job. Costs are harder to predict and control.
In contrast, WestWind Homes builds hundreds of homes a year. That means we can buy building materials for new homes in Edinburg from national suppliers at deep discounts.
We save on labor too. We employ whole crews and pay them standard rates. We train for excellence and employ some of the most highly skilled craftsmen in the business, but they don’t charge an arm and a leg because they can count on a steady paycheck. All that means we have high-quality, new construction Edinburg homes for sale for less than other builders, and we pass that saving on to you!
