Top Reasons to Live in Beaumont TX

  • Housing Statistics One of the reasons Beaumont is experiencing its current boom is the low cost of living. There are approximately 800 homes for sale, with an average sale price for a house at approximately $200,000. The average home for rent is approximately $740. The cost of living is less than the national average. There has also been a decrease in the number of homes sold, down 13%. Some of this decline can be traced back to the natural hurricane disasters the city experienced a few years ago. The majority of homes in Beaumont are owned and are either single-family or multifamily homes. The average age of homes, either for rent or for sale, is 32 years old. Fifty percent of the homes are owned, 39% are rented, and 10% are vacant.
  • Local Sports Just like most cities in Texas, Beaumont is a sports town. Along with the major Texas sports teams like the Dallas Cowboys, Dallas Mavericks, and Texas Rangers, there are plenty of smaller franchises that are just as popular in the city. Semi-professional leagues include the American Basketball Association, which features Beaumont's own Southeast Texas Mavericks. Also, the Texas Strikers are members of the Premier Arena Soccer League--their first season was in 2012. The only major university in the area--Lamar University--has a football team, the Lamar Cardinals, that is cheered on by the whole city. Of course, there is always the local rodeo, a very popular and huge event in Beaumont and the state of Texas itself.
  • Weather and Climate Since Beaumont is located so close to Louisiana, the town shares weather similar to that of the Pelican State. Notable for being extremely hot and subtropical, the area experiences a good deal of rain, with almost 48 inches of rain annually. In fact, it rains more in Beaumont than in any other city in Texas, mainly because of the Gulf waters that carry humid air over the region. While the area does get extremely humid and hot in the summers, snow has been known to fall occasionally during the winter. Most of the time the snowfall is less than six inches, but the area did see 30 inches of snow and an ice storm recently. Tornadoes and hurricanes are also common here.
