    The climate is fairly standard

    If you’re hoping for year-round rain and a wardrobe that solely consists of heavy layers, Fairview, Texas probably isn’t the place for you (nor is the rest of the state, for that matter).

    However, if you’re okay with endless sunshine and snow that only makes an appearance once in a blue moon, you’ll fit right in. Here are some additional statistics regarding climate in the areas surrounding Dallas:

    • Normal rainfall: Expect an average of 39 inches of rain per year, which is just one point below the nation’s average of 38 inches. Temperatures rarely drop below 36 during January’s winter low.
    • Lots of sun: Sunshine is bountiful in this region, with residents enjoying an average of 234 sunny days per year — 29 days more than the national average. Temperatures usually cap at 95 during July’s summer high.
    • Snow is rare: With an average of 1 inch of snowfall per year, this area sacrifices snowman-building for blizzard-free days.

    Overall, the weather in Fairview, Texas is known for being relatively comfortable outside of the July and August heat.

    The cost of living can be tricky

    Though there are numerous highlights that make Fairview, Texas a great place to live, its cost of living should be considered before approaching your local Collin County realtor.

    Unfortunately, this factor could use some improvement, as the city contains two somewhat concerning statistics: Its cost of living and housing prices are 7% and 17% higher than the national average, respectively. It’s also worth noting that the median household income in Fairview, Texas sits around $94,000, which is 52% higher than the state’s average.

    As such, prospective buyers should closely review their income and expenses to ensure life in the city is a good fit.

    Final Thoughts

    Despite a cost of living that may force some buyers to look elsewhere, Fairview, Texas is a laid-back city that still has so much to offer. From its nearby attractions to its gorgeous neighborhoods, future residents have no shortage of activities to look forward to during their stay.
