Everyone seems to be moving to Texas. Whenever I’m driving around town, I see cars with license plates from other states. While I can think of several reasons why people want to move here, many people are relocating to our great state, because of the affordable housing.

In a new study released by Rocket Mortgage, Texas in the fifth cheapest state in the entire country to buy a home. In order to rank housing prices in each state, the study measured every state’s cost of living index, median household income, and the house price index per state in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Since Texas is such a large state, it has numerous cities and towns where a family can purchase a home. According to the study, the state had a cost-of-living index of 92.1, and a median household income of $75,000. Texas also has no state income tax makes it an attractive option to those who are first time home buyers.
