Updated on July 8, 2013

Lovely LGI Home in Texas


Recently, a national report announced that the best place to find a job is in Texas. Those who come to the Lone Star state will find one of the most stable state economies in the United States, as well as one of the most affordable housing markets; the state also boasts a healthy supply of affordable new homes, many of which offer top-of-the-line amenities along with manageable monthly payments, including no-money down programs.

According to the Texas Association of Realtors, more than 200,000 homes sold in 2010 with a median price of $147,600. In addition to a variety of housing options, Texas also offers an equal variety of cultural lifestyles, from remote bucolic countryside to sophisticated urban areas; Texas truly has something for everyone.

Why Live In The Lone Star State


Because of its size, Texas is also home to a diverse number of industries including the oil, aerospace, agriculture, manufacturing, smart energy technology, and computer industries. Entrepreneurs are attracted to Texas because business licenses are not required; instead, industry specific permits and licenses are issued by the appropriate agency. As an added bonus, Texas is one of just seven states that does not impose personal income tax.

The state’s major cities—Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, and San Antonio—each have unique personalities and enjoy a broad assortment of cultural pursuits including art galleries, theatre, sports, world class restaurants, and music venues.

Nature lovers can enjoy fishing, hiking, boating hunting, and camping at one of the state’s many parks. Steeped in history, the state also is home to many landmarks and attractions such as The Alamo, Dinosaur Valley State Park, the San Jacinto battleground, and the restored Battleship Texas. And in keeping with its cowboy past, livestock and rodeos show are very popular, with several major events each year.

Among its economy, its natural beauty, its vibrant culture, and personal and professional prospects, Texas is rapidly becoming the new land of opportunity.

      Can't take the poll. Relocated to Texas years ago. Like I said: I was Texas before Texas was cool! I'm going to place your link at some of my HUBs about Texas to redirect traffic here. I guess you're not convinced to relocate from southern California though? It's a hard decision especially if you have kids. But I'd recommend it if you're thinking about it.
