Part of the reason I've heard it's a good time to be investing in Real Estate in TX.

Still curious if the OP will come back and explain his comment about moving from TX to CA to get involved in real estate investing.

Looks like someone in Texas government bribed Forbes to support their attempt to repopulate certain areas of the state that have been ravaged by REWahoo's full-disclosure hazards...

You forgot to mention that the Cowboys lost today to top it all off.

Actually the rural Hill Country (40-60 mi west of i 35) is quite pretty, and there are reasonable sized towns, such as Kerrville, Fredricksburg, and Marble Falls/Burnet. These towns have Wal-Mart super centers but not Sams so one can get an idea of their size. Marble Falls is on the Highland Lakes as well. Now if you go one tier of counties west you get Junction, Menard, Mason, Llano and San Saba and these are true small towns.

That's the part that is admittedly beyond my comprehension. DW and I used to live within 30 minutes (when there wasn't gridlock) of Arlington/Alexandria and walked away from triple our current income almost ten years ago.

Even now we still get a kick out of watching the TV traffic reports of traffic backed up as far as the eye can see and hooting "We're soooo glad we don't live there anymore!"

Yep, reasonable-sized until folks start touting them on retirement forums and thousands of ill-informed retirees move there to make current residents (hint, hint) long for the good old days before traffic jams and overcrowding...
