I am a 21 year old, graduating senior at a state school in an urban Mississippi city. I do plan on going to graduate school. After I graduate from graduate school, I want to buy a home in Texas. However, I have only been to Texas once, but I have always been drawn to it. I need help finding a city that will best fit the following.

1. It must have a Church of Christ in the neighboring area.

2. It doesn't necessarily have to be single people there, but young people.

3. A diverse neighboorhood and city.

4. My research has proven that Texas has low housing, but high property taxes. So, my price range is 100,000-150,000. It can be a foreclosed home.

5. I want to live close to shopping

6.

Oh, let's see. How about Houston, Dallas, Austin, Fort Worth, Lubbock.....?.

You can't really go wrong with our big cities and the areas that surround them. They will pretty much have what you may be looking for, but it also, too, depends on what job you plan to be doing and the market for it. And you'll need to determine exactly where you want to do your graduate studies.

Every town in Texas will have a Church of Christ......no problem there. However, one of the largest ones in Texas is in Lubbock (there is also the Sunset Church of Christ Preaching School there).....and it's just down the street from the Texas Tech campus - a great place to do graduate work. Lubbock is a conservative town and is also less expensive to live in than some of the larger cities.

Abilene also has lots of Church of Christ since Abilene Christian University is there. Cost of living is very low, too.

What sort of job do you plan on getting? Most mortgage companies prefer to lend to people who are employed...
