HOUSTON — If you're looking to buy a house with a $300,000 budget, Texas isn't a bad bet — for now.

Buyers with a $300,000 budget in Texas can expect about 2,356 square feet, or about $127.33 per square foot for the median list price. The home size is enough for a No. 13 ranking among all 50 states and Washington, D.C., according to GOBankingRates.

However, GOBankingRates notes that, while buyers can expect generous square footage now, Texas' home prices have surged over the past few years. The price per square foot has risen about 11 percent since last year.
