We all know that Texas is the second largest state in the United States by both area and population. No question, there’s a lot of real estate deals going on in this state.
Here are some amazing Texas real estate facts that we think you might find interesting:

- On the other hand, the smallest home in Texas could be just one designed by a company called Tiny Texas with units measuring 448 square feet.
