Top Reasons to Live in Texas
- More rental homes! Choosing a rent to own home over a mortgage is easier in Texas, thanks to the state's plethora of rental homes, at least compared to the country as a whole. While just 36.50 of American homes are rentals, in Texas, this number is 38.16 percent. For an even higher percentage of rental homes, check out a rent to own home in a neighborhood in Killeen in Texas' Hill Country, where 42.51 percent of residents rent, or in the Panhandle's Lubbock, where 41.23 percent of all the residents rent their houses.
