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. The City of 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. Killeen is located on the edge of the Texas Hill Country to the west, featuring beautiful lakes and vineyards. Read more about the city’s history here!
If you are moving to the Fort Hood area, Killeen is your most likely destination. There are great neighborhoods to choose from as the town rapidly grows southwards – the only direction it can expand with Fort Hood to the north and west, and Harker Heights to the east. With all the growth comes many builders, and there are great builder options or recently built preowned homes. The cost of living is low, even for Texas, giving you a great quality of life for your money. Featuring everything you need in a town, it is one of the best duty stations for military personnel and a great place to live.

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 construction, generating an ample supply of inventory to keep up with the housing demand. Recent years have shown a steady improvement in the housing market as homes seller faster and for more.
Like the rest of Bell County and 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. Foreclosures are still prevalent in the area but dropping.
