37. No offense but price reflects demand
There is a reason you can find 29k houses in Odessa TX. if I am not mistaken Odessa is still ag based township.

I'm sure its a great place to live if you have a low paying ranch hand, feed store, fast-food or grocery clerk job. Its also likely a excellent place to live if you are retired.

But say you want to do something other than Cow tipping for fun, want to eat something other than Blue plate cuisine, or shop someplace other than Walmart. Well you have to drive to Abilene or El Paso either one of those is pretty much a 6 hour drive.

I grew up in a small ranch centric community in the southwest not in Texas but surprisingly close to Odessa, I live in Minnesota now and compared to where I grew up.
"all folks are smart, scenery is great, and jobs are plentiful and high paying as well. Education system is wonderful, health care is abundant, water everywhere, no bugs, local politicos savvy and tuned in, state government enlightened and working hard for every citizen."

House prices are stupid high and we do have some nasty bugs but then people want to live here.
