Houston Texas holds the #2 spot on Forbes list of “Best Cities for Young Adults”. Three other Texas cities also made it into the top 10 including Austin #1, Dallas #6, and San Antonio #9.
Forbes compiled their Best Cities list by defining young adults as those ages 20 to 29 and then narrowed their search to the 40 “coolest” Metropolitan Statiscal Areas. Forbes then compared the five data points of unemployment, average salaries, cost of living, social scene, and median age to determine a city’s ranking. After all the calculations were done, Houston captured the #2 spot.
Coolness rank: 22
Nightlife rank: 26
Median age rank: 3
Salary rank: 3
Unemployment rank: 13
Cost-of-living rank: 21
According to Forbes, the criteria for a great city for young adults include“young, trendy social scene, decent entry-level career opportunitiese and a quality of life that consists of more than store-bought ramen noodles”.

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
