Texas didn't experience the 2005-7 housing bubble, so they didn't experience the bust. I'm not surprised at the results above.

We had bitter memories of our own real-estate boom and bust in the mid-80s, so there were more restrictions in place on housing loans than in most states.

Well, I thought I was retired. But it seems that now I'm working as a travel agent instead!
