Killeen Is Just One of Many “Under the Radar” Towns in Texas
It's no secret that Texas has been experiencing a population boom in recent years. As the economy thrives and more jobs move here, people are flocking from other states to get a piece of the pecan pie.
Those people are looking to put down roots, and many probably start their search around areas like Dallas, Austin, Houston, or San Antonio.
Texas is a big place, and a lot of cities fly under the radar when people are looking for a place to settle down.
Orchard, a real estate brokerage and advice firm that operates in several cities, including Houston and Austin, recently ranked their top Texas cities people might overlook.
Out of the 15 cities, none in the Temple-Killeen area are mentioned. Those of us who live or work here know it's a fantastic place to live and do business, and judging by the home prices and all the construction going on, others are picking up on that fact too.
The list is still a good read nonetheless.
Orchard compiled their list using data from the U.S. Census Bureau, median home price data, and public school ratings,
According to Orchard, "under the radar" cities are places where "the quality of life is high, the home prices are relatively low, and the market for home buying isn't as competitive as in other parts of the state — giving homebuyers more options and leverage."
Out of the 15 cities, I have visited 5 of them.
I might have to take a road trip, check out these cities, and see what they have to offer.
I don't think my wife wants to move out of Austin anytime soon, but it's fun to see what's out there and how other people live.
I grew up as a teenager in a small town and loved it. Hopefully, I can move to a smaller city in the future.
Maybe you might know someone living in one of these "Under the radar cities."
