Dear All :)

Currently, I am a college student in California and I plan to buy a home in the

future. However, I don't think I will be able to buy a home in California due to

unaffordable home prices. After doing some research on www.Zillow.com,

the median home prices of Texas ($116,000) is almost 5 times less expensive

compared to the median home prices of California ($532,000).

If you know anything about Texas, would you please inform me about the

living environment of Texas, in terms of the community, school, work, etc.

Thank you so much and have a good day.

Sincerely,
Better Future

Move to Dallas! No, move to Houston! No, move to San Antonio! No! No! No! Move to El Paso! Wait, you should move to The Woodlands!

That's basically what this thread will become.

Anyway, if you want any info on San Antonio (cheapest housing costs of any Texas metro and any metro over 1 million) then just let me know.

You should try Houston, because it is just as cheap as San Antonio (less than 10,000 more). Plus, you get more big city amenities.
One can find or do any thing they could do in Houston in San Antonio.

Name one thing they could do in San Antonio that a could in Houston besides attend an NFL or MLB game.

I don't know Houston is near coastal beaches.

Come on, it is obvious that of a city of Houston's size, compared to San Antonio, that there would be more things to do. 5.4 million compared to 1.9 million. Which has more?

Trust me though, there is a lot of stuff to do around San Antonio, like in New Braunfels, go out to a lake, tube down a river.

Homes in Houston

^^That website will have everything you will need to find a home in Houston. There are also links to the other Texas markets.

Also Houston.Org has even more information. From inner city life to suburban life.

San Antonio has the same big city amenities as Houston and Dallas. But Houston and Dallas has more of it. It's whatever you prefer.

What does population have to do with amenities?]
Thats a joke right?

(Not talking about Houston vs. San Antonio, but the general statement)

edit: Texas has a lower "cost of living", but land values are skyrocketing, and in the not so far future, prices might go up.

No I'm not. Sure you have cases like New York city amenties to Lubbock Texas.

But those are extreme cases.

If you are confident enough in your opinion, you can list five "amenties" one gets with a larger population.

WOW everyone from San Antonio are so so sensative no matter what it is. What's wrong with the people there? Houston does have ALOT more aminities than San Antonio. San Antonio thinks it can compete with anything and everything out there. People make more money in Houston, so the housing market is much cheaper in Houston.
