So that's two places in Texas you've apparently never seen in your life (SA being the other), yet you feel the need to make unfounded comments on. Congrats.

For those who have actually been here, this comes as no surprise. I can't find the link right now, but surveys point to Lubbock as having one of the highest disposable incomes in the nation when the cost of rent/mortgage and utilities are taken into account. The cost of living is such that one doesn't have to have a high income to have a standard of living, so the standard is already high and only getting better.

Apparently the most of the pop growth is due to the hispanic population, but with asians too.

Rebuilding the Overton area has made a big difference. I'm not suggesting that's all there is in reference to things city-wide, but the redevelopment from what it was eight years ago to what it is now is drawing residents and college students alike to that part of Lubbock. It's been quite a transformation. The city as a whole is doing well, but could get better. They still need to do something with that east side. Lots of available space.

It also helps when the cost of land is less than other places.
