A Few Good Reasons to Take Up a Piece of Midland, TX Real Estate and Make It Home

Jul 4, 2008
Back when I was a young buck, trampling through the snow during Utah's cold winters was something I enjoyed. But then, one day, I grew up and realized that driving in the stuff when you're late for work wasn't so much fun. Then, as I aged a bit more, I found myself staying indoors as much as possible when the white stuff hit the ground. My temperament for cold days was growing short, and I longed for warmer times. And that's what brought me to find Midland, TX real estate as being so attractive.

In my search for a better climate, I studied all the cities with well known Mediterranean-style climates, such as San Diego and Los Angeles, and even the more tropical ones such as Miami. The big disadvantages of these big cities is that everybody else likes the climates there as well, creating a supply and demand situation that puts the real estate in those towns out of reach for your average American.

Midland's Climate

And that brings me to Midland, TX real estate. Midland might not have the much sought after Mediterranean or tropical climate, but it does have very mild winters with average highs in the mid-50's during January (the coldest month), but can often climb into the 60's or even 70's. This is a far cry from Utah's harsh winters and freezing temperatures which can last for months on end.

In fact, you'll typically only get below freezing temperatures overnight in Midland during two months of the year. And unlike the dry desert climate of Utah, Midland's summers receive about seven inches of precipitation -- accounting for half the annual average -- helping to bring in some humidity and keep the air clean.

But what good is living somewhere if there's nothing to do?

Things to Do in Midland

Midland has a rich culture that dates back to Texas' frontier days where many of the old western tales originate. A popular attraction is the George W. Bush childhood home which was dedicated in 2006.

A symphony and Chorale as well as a community theater have been performing music, musicals, comedies, dramas and more since the middle of the 20th century. And, of course, Texas is well known for the oil it produces. Museums revealing Texas' oil history are a popular stop of the tourists, as are the oil fields.

Midland also sports a minor league baseball team, an affiliate to the Oakland Athletics.

The Price of Midland Real Estate

I'll be honest. If I were a multi-millionaire, I'd pack up and head for San Diego today. But, since I'm not, I've got to take into consideration the price of homes and figure out a way to live within my means.

This is where Midland, TX real estate shines. With a Midland home costing half the national average, you'll find some of the most affordable homes in the nation.
