In an earlier post on foreclosures in Houston neighborhoods, I discussed how foreclosures had seen an increase in the Houston real estate market.

This doesn’t surprise me, Forbes.com has once again recognized Houston by placing our city at position number 4 for “Cities Where Your Nest Egg Goes Farthest“.

I’ll list those plus offer a few more reasons why I think retirement life in Houston will help you stretch your retirement dollars.
