NEW YORK (Forbes) – Three Texas cities made Forbes’ list of ten most affordable U.S. cities.

San Antonio came in sixth with Houston right behind at seven. Austin claimed the final spot on the list and was noted as one of the nation’s hottest cities for high-tech jobs.

Forbes attributed the number of Texas cities on the list to the state’s business-friendly climate, rich natural resources and stable housing economy.

“The state (as a whole), and Houston and San Antonio (in particular) are deriving significant income from domestic in-migration. People are moving to Texas because of job availability and because of the cost of housing being so low,” said Real Estate Center Research Economist Dr. Jim Gaines. “Texas has always been a wide-open laissez-faire, low-control, low-regulation place.”
