Houston: The City with No Limits
Houston is a city of endless possibilities: our history has been marked with achievements like the first word heard from the moon and the first artificial heart transplant. Nationally recognized parks, professional sports, fine dining, and other attractions make Houston a great place to call home.
Cost of Living
Houstonians wake up to all the perks of big city life without the heavy price tag. Whether it’s a weekend grocery run or a stop at a local coffee shop – your dollar goes further in Houston.
The C2ER Cost of Living Index 2013 Annual Average shows that Houston has the third lowest overall cost of living among the nation’s 20 most populous metropolitan areas. The same study also shows that Houston’s overall after-taxes living costs are 5.6 percent below the average for all 308 urban areas participating in the survey, largely due to affordable housing costs.
Houston’s a great deal, and people are taking notice. For the fourth consecutive year, Houston ranked first in U-Haul’s annual national migration trend report, “The U-Haul 2012 Top 50 U.S. Destination Cities.”
Another major perk of life as a Houstonian is diverse and affordable real estate. From a modern loft downtown to a traditional, single-family home in the Woodlands, the greater Houston area offers a wide variety of housing options. There’s something for every age and stage in life and best of all, the price is right.
