The nearby Sheppard Air Force Base helps. It not only accounts for 20% to 25% of the area’s economic activity, but supplies a steady stream of renters. “Many of the service members know that they’re only going to stay three or four years and they choose to rent,” said Danny Steed, a local real estate broker.

A good example of the homes in the area is this nearly 1,700 square-foot brick home in Wichita Falls, which was recently listed for just $89,900.
