That bass-playing realtor-beagle webbie-guy, Joel Canfield, noted: >>of the 10 most undervalued housing markets in the US, the lowest five >>are all in Texas, seven out of the top 10. Well now, that's not a bad thang ifn you is a-buying! (Hi Sue!) ;-P However ... I can personally vouch for Houston being an 'undervalued market' ... especially since I have my own home up for sale at the moment ... for less than whut I paid fer it! *Ouch*! It _can_ be a bit frustrating. >>Ron, any insights into why the median income in College Station is over $60K >>and in Dallas, it's barely over $40K? are the overpaying folks at A&M? Guess #1: I figger it's more likely they've just got some Aggies computin' the statistics! Guess #2: It may be onna them 'statistical' thangs whut happen when you compare different market sizes. Dallas certainly has some wealthy residents. However, it has a heck of a lot more residents than College Station. 'Outliers' are more likely to impact and skew statistics from smaller areas. It's that thar "bit fish inna small pond" thang -- only with numbers .... Seeee whutimean? RonL. Hard to believe this goober was actually once paid to teach statistics at the University level, isn't it? 25 years ago (or so) the city with the highest per capita income in the entire United States was a little bitty place known as Shaker Heights, Ohio. Nice place. Lotta nice homes! Some GREAT bookstores. Anyway, Shaker Heights (at that time) had one _extremely_ wealthy (and extremely infamous) resident. If the income for that individual were not considered, I doubt Shaker Heights would have rated in the top 5 cities for income. . . . . His name was Rueben Sturman. A search may or may not be SFW. He was the king of worldwide porn back in the day. Threw hella outrageous parties ... or, uh, so I have heard anyway.
