AUSTIN, TX. – Are you planning on moving to Austin Texas? If so, Austin’s suburbs were recently named by Smart Asset among the best suburbs in Texas for buying a home and raising a family.

About the Best Suburbs in Texas

SmartAsset said it looked at 87 cities with a population greater than 25,000 for the study and measured them on 12 metrics including family poverty rate, median household income, high school graduation rate and violent crime rate. Their findings found the average median household income is just shy of six figures and that average median monthly housing cost was around $1,500, higher than cities like New York.

Leander topped the list, with six Dallas-area suburbs and cities taking the 2-7 spots. Georgetown, Round Rock and Houston’s suburb of Pearland round out the top 10.
