One More Reason We Love Texas

Tags: Real Estate

You’ve probably heard it said that everything is bigger in Texas. We beg to differ. Almost everything is bigger in Texas. One notable exception are home prices. According to Forbes, the average home price in Texas’ 20 major cities ranged from $147,000 to $266,000 in 2018. That’s about half of the median price for a single-family home in California, which is $549,000. If you want to live in San Francisco, your average-priced home is around $1.4 million, which is actually more than the median price in another of the nation’s priciest markets — Manhattan at $1.075 million.

The median price in the United States is just under $300,000.
