Ever wondered what the wealthiest city in Texas is? First of all, what constitutes a city being 'wealthy?' Do you have to be a neighbor to some of Texas' finest? George Strait who happens to live in Texas. Actor Matthew McConaughey who has a home somewhere here in our great state? I doubt either of the two are factors but I will tell you that as of this year, the wealthiest city in Texas is Southlake, Texas. However not only is it the wealthiest in the Lonestar State, but it also holds the honor of being #1 in the US!

According to the US Census Bureau,

With a median household income of $240,248, Southlake’s population earns shockingly more than the average American household.

 

WHERE IS SOUTHLAKE, TEXAS LOCATED?

Southlake is located in the Metroplex, a suburb of Dallas/Ft.Worth, population less than 35,000. Very family oriented city, the wealth of the city is high and the poverty rate is less than 3%.

Needless to say the average cost of a home in Southlake is going to be high. The typical value of a home in the wealthiest city in Texas and the United States is about $1 million.

Check out this stunner I found on Zillow that is currently on the market for $6.9 million.  5 bedrooms, 7 baths over 8,000 sq. ft.
