Killeen is the largest city near the US Army post at Fort Hood. Naturally, it is very much a military town, and a majority of residents are active duty, retired military, Army spouses or DOD civilians. Killeen’s population exploded since the War on Terror began in 2001, when it was a mere 80,000. Now over 130,000, it is the largest city between Dallas and Austin – larger even than Waco. It is in a great location in Central Texas, within striking distance of the best of what Texas has to offer. Texas’s largest cities, Austin, Dallas, Houston and San Antonio, are no more than a three hour’s drive. It is located on the edge of the Texas Hill country to the west, featuring beautiful lakes and vineyards. Read more about Killeen and it’s history here!

Even with Killeen’s tremendous growth since 2000, home values during that time have been mostly flat, just keeping pace with inflation. This is attributable to the ample new home building that has taken place during that time, generating an ample supply of inventory to keep up with the housing demand.
Like the rest of Texas, Killeen survived the 2008 housing crash relatively unscathed because home values had not climbed anywhere near as dramatically as they had in places like Florida, California and Nevada.
