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.

We lived in the area for about 3 years before taking the house-hunting plunge and truly could not have chosen a better realtor to work with. Jill is professional and patient, she is an incredible resource who is 100% there for her clients at all times. We had a lot of questions and didn't want to pay any closing costs or prepaid costs out of pocket - Jill is a Master Certified Negotiation Expert and it SHOWS. We got exactly what we wanted at the price we wanted AND had several bonuses thrown in, including appliances and gutters. She was there for inspections/walk-throughs and kept in contact with our builder's salesperson as well. If you want a strong realtor who is also pleasant to work with (which I've learned is rare), then Jill is the realtor for you!! read less
