Texas Ranks as One of Top Places to Live in America

Sep 7, 2007
Sienna Plantation of Missouri City, Texas, is a residential community that ranks way up there as one of the top places to live in America. This is because Missouri City has made it to the Money Magazine 2007 list of the 100 best cities to live in, in the state of Texas. Texas itself has 6 towns which were listed in the same year among the 100 best towns to live in, in the United States.

Being a respected financial magazine, Money Magazine is known for giving sound financial advice to businessmen and entrepreneurs (not to mention the general public) so making it to this exclusive list of the top places to live in America is quite an honor in itself.

Missouri City is in good company - Highland Park, and Southlake, which are both located in Texas, are named #11 and #25 respectively on the list of the best towns to live in the country (based on highest median household income.) Everyone will probably agree that household income is a good determinant of the quality of life that a Texas resident and his family can enjoy since obviously you cannot meet the needs of each family member without adequate income. Money Magazine said the median household income for Highland Park is $174,538 while for Southlake it stands at $152,991, which definitely makes these two Texas towns some of the top places to live in America.

Highland Park was also named by the magazine in another list - the list of the top 25 towns which have the highest median home price. Being #15 on that list, the median home price for a Highland Park home is $1,603,608. We know that your property appreciates in value when the other homes in the same neighborhood and in surrounding communities have approximately the same value, so you can expect that a home near Highland Park will probably command around the same median home price as well.

This is good news for families with homes in Texas who would like to see their investment appreciate over time, so that leasing it out or even selling it in the future will help them command a good market price for it. After all, one bad egg can contaminate the whole dozen, or in this case at least one of the top places to live in America.

Another town in Texas which ranks up there as one of the top places to live in America is College Station. This Texas town made it to #25 on the list of the 25 places in America with the greatest population of singles. College Station has a singles population of 54.6% out of the whole population - and you know that where singles tend to accumulate, you can expect to find high spending patterns not just on the basics of food, clothing and shelter, but also on other needs such as entertainment and the nightlife. This is good news for entrepreneurs who are scouting for the top places to live in America so that they can relocate their businesses there.

Real estate developers will also find the tendency of singles to live near one another to be an advantage when selling their real estate projects and developments because, for one, word of great deals on property can spread through referrals and word of mouth. Singles are generally just starting out on their careers but probably will settle down as soon as they find a suitable mate, so looking for great properties is probably one of their life priorities at that time in their life.

It is not such a far off possibility that the rank-and-file employee in 2007 may turn out to be the chief executive officer of the same company 10 years later. And of course, as a single goes up the corporate ladder, and settles down to raise a family, his needs will change. So a wise real estate agent and astute real estate developer would want to market his offerings to the singles market as early as possible. The critical mass of singles in College Station shows great promise for future sales of properties.
