Texas has an impressive real estate market boasting house prices so shockingly low it might not seem real, but it definitely is.
Proof of that was recently shown in a viral TikTok posted by realtor Isaiah Ramos (@isaiah_ramos_rgv_realtor) of a brand-new 4-bedroom, 3-bathroom home in Rio Grande City, Texas, with a $355,000 listing price that made people — mainly Canadians — so jealous.
The 2,200 sq. ft. house offers features like a 2-car garage, quartz countertops, porcelain tile flooring, and a covered patio, all sitting atop a half acre of land.
The house is described as a "custom" design. It has an open floor plan throughout the four rooms and an overall sleek, modern look, with black, grey, and white as the predominant design colors.
We can't forget the massive primary bedroom that has a huge, Texas-sized closet that comes with a mirror and a stunning walk-in shower in the bathroom.
In five days, the social media clip received 1.3 million views and the obligatory comments from North Americans comparing how pricey the same property would be in their area.

Canadians viewers more than anyone seem to be the most envious of the $355K price, so much so that some are even willing to move to Texas.
"Why am I still living in Canada with these house prices in Texas?" one user wrote. Another one said, "$22 mill in Vancouver. I'll see you in Texas soon."
Others went on to compare the Texas property to their provinces and cities with comments like "about 2 million in Calgary" or "that's a million + in Quebec City. Insane."
