18. Honestly, WD...
you have to think about where you're moving.

In my opinion, buying a manufactured home in Texas (ie Tornado Alley) is asking for trouble.

I'd far rather be renting in a solid dwelling with a foundation than buying a mobile or manufactured home. I've been a Texan for the last 36 years, and don't say this lightly!

Welcome to the neighborhood. I'm from Austin originally, but live near Dallas now. Hopefully Austin's real estate bubble will burst just a little to make it affordable for the little guy again, but it's changed a lot since I left.

I wouldn't completely discount the area just to the east of I-35 from about 290 south to about 29th street or thereabouts. It used to be very crime-ridden and iffy, but in the last decade, those folks who couldn't afford the gentrified bit to the west of I-35 began moving to the east side of the highway, and it's enjoyed a bit of a rennaissance, especially since the old Robert Mueller airport closed and moved out to Bergstrom.

Good luck!
