When it comes to finding the best place to live in Texas, you’ve got to factor in more than just home costs. A cheap place to live with a high crime rate or low income levels isn’t an ideal place to call home. So we’ve looked into every city with a population of 75,000 or more, examining unemployment rates, household income, housing costs, utility bills and crime rates to help you find the all-around best place in Texas to get the biggest bang for your buck.

These top 10 cities had the best combination of all the factors listed above as compared to national or state data. Here’s what we compared these cities to:

  • U.S. unemployment rate: 7 percent
  • U.S. median household income: $53,056
  • Average house listing price in Texas: $311,856
  • Average Texas electric rate: 10.5 kWh
  • U.S. crime rate 301.1 (The higher the number, the more crime)
