The tax structure is different, as Texas has no income tax, so things are financed through higher property taxes and higher sales tax. Austin suburbs are very pleasant, and I'd consider the real estate affordable.

North Carolina has both an income tax and property taxes, maybe a slightly higher overall tax burden. You might look for a state tax comparison chart. If you expected to be in a super-high income bracket, the tax picture favors Texas.
This is what I was thinking.
We lived in TX for a little bit before we moved to NC. The heat in TX was not as humid as NC is. The temps do get higher, but its very different. I liked TX.
