One of the many things you will want to know before relocating to Spring Texas is how the cost of living compares to the city you are moving from. CNN money has recently developed a cost of living calculator to help you with just this task.
Since the cost of living calculator does not have Spring Texas as an option you will have to choose Houston Texas. But since Spring is often considered a suburb of Houston you should still be able to come up with a fairly accruate comparison.
Since I am currently working with buyers relocating from Anchorage Alaska, Baltimore Maryland, and Cleveland Ohio, I thought it would be interesting to find out which of these buyers is going to receive the largest financial benefit by relocating to Spring Texas.
The lucky buyer relocating from Baltimore Maryland will enjoy the largest decrease in his cost of living. His housing costs are going to be 53% less, groceries will be 19% less, and his utilities will be 17% less in Spring Texas than in Baltimore. A salary of $60,000 in Baltimore is equivalent to $44,474 in Spring Texas.
I have always thought the cost of living was extremely affordable in Spring Texas and with this cost of living calculator I can now prove it.

This process was extremely difficult for me, as my father passed away last year. Jill listened to EVERY story I had, and there were a lot of them! She allowed me to share the memories of the house, which helped me prepare to let it go.She is very knowledgeable in what to and what not to do in regards to getting the home ready to sell, what to tackle during the negotiation process and she made the closing extremely convenient. She was thoughtful enough to place the "sold" sign on the property a week in advance, to allow me time to process it all. Paying constant attention to what is happening around your listing is one of JIll's many strengths. Her goal is to get you the most money for your property, and she has different strategies to that end result. I not only gained a new realtor, but in JIll, I also gained a friend! I will be forever grateful for her through this tough process and I know my Dad would have loved her! "Thanks," will never be enough! read less
