​​​​​​HEREFORD, DEAF SMITH COUNTY, TEXAS – ​We’re here to tell you that you can buy a free-standing home with a real backyard in a small town where you’ll actually know your neighbors—without breaking the bank, according to realtor.com​.

The 2017 Top Affordable Small Towns release is not talking about depressed areas where you can buy a house for a song (even a slightly off-key one).

Nope, realtor.com is talking about towns whose economies are humming along, so local services are plentiful and your chances of finding a paying gig are good.​

Placing fifth in the U.S. is Hereford, Texas.
  • ​Median home price: $98,900
  • Unemployment rate: 3.3%
When you set foot in Hereford, located in the Texas Panhandle, it doesn’t take long to confirm you’re in the “Beef Capital of the World.” 

More than a million cattle graze on rich pastures within 50 miles of Hereford, and toddlers wear bibs that read, “BEEF, it’s what’s for dinner.”​
