I am looking for a home in Rising Star, Texas. Many of the homes that are empty are owned by those living in large cities, and they have large city prices on them. Does anyone know how to find good housing in Rising Star?

Have you tried going to the Texas state forum and asking there? They might be able to help you more than the rural forum maybe?

If you don't mind getting your hands dirty, look at foreclosures, forfeitures, seizures, etc. I just bought a 20 acre farm (1900 sq.ft. house, two barns) in the Panhandle of Texas from Freddie Mac for less than a new used Ford truck. There are several sites on the web that list these homes but here's a good comprehensive one. I found my own place but a realtor can also help.

No, I haven't. But could you be more specific? I'm not really well-acquainted with these sites. Thanks for the input, though.

That's a good idea. I'll check your link and let you know what I found. By the way, I lived in the Texas Panhandle for more than 40 years. I'm planning to stay away from the blizzards and sand storms. I love the humidity and the great temps (except for August and September) down here in Houston.

I've been out here, off and on, for a little over forty years, and I agree on the sand storms and especially the blizzards. I do like the low humidity and the people though. And too family members were here. I'm originally from 120 miles north of Houston.

Before we settled on the Hale County area, I had really liked the area around Eastland and Cisco and actually did some looking around that area. Good luck finding a place down there. That appears to be a nice area.
