HOUSTON (U.S. News & World Report) – Houston and College Station–Bryan are among the ten most-undervalued places to live in the United States, according to U. S. News & World Report.

Houston ranked second thanks to its relatively stable housing market, pro-business climate and sound local economy.

“The medium- and long-term prospects for Houston are extremely good,” said Dr. Jim Gaines, research economist with the Real Estate Center at Texas A&M University. “[Houston has] good demographic growth, job growth and a reasonably balanced housing market.”

College Station–Bryan, the only other Texas metro to make the list, ranked ninth.
