Finding the right city to call home can be almost as difficult as finding that perfect lot to call your own. Santa Cruz Properties is based out of Edinburg for a reason; the growing city offers plenty of opportunities and amenities for citizens. We feel this is one of the best cities to settle down in and call home.
Low Cost of Living
According to Monster.com, the cost of living in Edinburg is over 20% below the national average. In fact, nearly all living basics are surprisingly affordable, from public transportation to groceries to health care. Living in Edinburg won’t break the bank; in fact, you may just add savings to the bank!
The City of Edinburg has a relatively diverse economy and qualified candidates can find several positions in their field. Retail positions for sales associates, management jobs for assistant managers and store managers are frequently open. Candidates seeking health care jobs often find employment as medical assistants, nurses and case managers. Some jobs in growing industries like information systems, dentistry, medicine and education are all available in Edinburg.
A State-Recognized University
The University of Texas-Rio Grande Valley was the first public university created in Texas in the 21st century. With the implementation of UTRGV, the Rio Grande Valley will now be home to a School of Medicine; for the first time, Valley students will have the opportunity to earn a medical degree close to home. With the creation of UTRGV, UT Brownsville and UT Pan American became distinguished legacy institutions, sharing their resources to create one distributed but unified campus.
According to a U.S. News & World Report survey in July 2015, four Rio Grande Valley hospitals were in the top 20 in the state and among 581 nationwide viewed as regional leaders. Edinburg-based Doctors Hospital at Renaissance was in a six-way tie for 17th best in Texas. The hospital demonstrated expertise in at least one of 16 specialties, including cancer treatment and heart surgery according to U.S. News & World Report.
One of the Best Cities in Texas
NerdWallet conducted a study about “The Best Places to Live in Texas”. The site gathered information from the 50 largest cities in Texas via a variety of data sources, which included quality-of-life indicators, to form a list of the best places to live in Texas.
The results were released in June 2015 and placed Edinburg in the top 50 at number 42. Since there are over 3,000 cities in Texas, this is indeed a true feat and accomplishment!
