    I'd have to agree with Majormadmax then...

    I can think of a few reasons. Some folks don't want to or are unable to deal with exterior maintenance much less taking care of acreage. With some health problems, it's good to be close to a seriously big med center. I can imagine a retirement lifestyle that involves stepping outside of my condo and getting on the train to go to the doctor/symphony/zoo/museum/library/restaurants/grocery. It would require driving to get to some place to shoot but that may or may not be a big deal.

    Personally, I'd like a place in the middle of nowhere with a benchrest on my back porch.

    But I won't discourage someone from choosing "an urban shithole", assuming they put a little thought into the process.

    Not Killeen. Military town and a shitty one at that.

    We have a few members in Abilene. Seems nice but I have limited knowledge beyond that.

    So what kind of house would you expect to get in MD for 250k? Having a base line will let us know what you might expect comparison wise.

    You've also named 3 of the 4 most liberal cities in Texas. As others keep mentioning, there are several other cities near those others, who are much more conservative and offer all the same benefits those named cities do.

    For starters, you're gonna have to get used to the heat no matter where you settle. For the Houston area, add high humidity to the mix. For San Antonio, you need to like spicy foods. Learning a few spanish words would be helpful too.

    Dallas is a hotbed of growth, but many of the suburbs reflect that in the price of housing, and the associated real estate taxes. Not all areas, but many of the popular ones.
