    My wife and I plan to retire in TX in about 5 years. We plan to move in one of the three areas mentioned above. If I were you, were would you settle considering climate, housing cost, medical facilities. We will be coming from MD and will be looking for a house in the 200 - 250k range.

    Frisco/McKinney area is nice and growing steadily. Great doctors/hospitals around and lots to do

    San Antonio!
    Forget that, find property in the Texas Hill Country! Why retire in an urban shit hole? Look at Kerrville or somewhere in that area...

    If wanting to be out of the hustle and bustle of the bigger cities, lots of nice smaller towns on the outskirts within 30-45 drive of main hospitals

    Honestly, that money isn't going to go far in a big city but will get you something very nice an hour away from them (or less in some cases).

    Austin is going nuts right now and the average home price just hit $400k.

    I totally agree with MMM on this. If my job wasn't a few hours away from there, that is where I would want to live. This area is one of the more beautiful areas of Texas, plus San Antonio is only about an hour away. I do visit there often.

    Dawico is correct. The housing market in Texas is sky high right now. Plenty of homes with an acre or two in the suburbs with your budget though. FYI - I'm in Dallas.

    I am not exactly looking to live in the city. I am looking at the outskirts of those cities. I just didn't know enough of the smaller towns to name them. In Zillow, I was looking at Killeen, Abilene. I have been to Plano once in 2008.
