Went to Altus and looked at houses for sale. Looked at a few that were way over priced and looked at 2 in a place called Duke.. Couldn't find anything decent to rent.........what do people do when they can't find a place to live there.......doesn't. Look like a fun place to be and Duke really looked boring...............

When I first got here I thought houses were overprciced also. Especially the new ones built by the "mass builders". I guess it all depends on where you have been in the past. The market determines the houseing prices. I do know that the apartments have been filling up lately and I heard it is hard to get one without a wait. Is your family military? Some people go on base for a year to get a feel for the community. I will be selling my home soon, but I do not know your needs or your budget. I am selling for what I paid for it 3 years ago, despite upgrading a few items. Houses don't appreciate much here, unless you completely remodel and then you have to pay attention to what area you do that to. You can over remodel for your street.

Well looked at houses for around 150,000 just didn't like what I would be getting for my money. I heard homes are really hard to sale there. Wish I could just find a decent apt to rent.

Guess I will be moving to Altus mid October. Never found a house or a Apt. Yet so guess I will be staying at the Ramada Inn until I find something..

Anne,

Growing up in midwest, I would not classify the winter as "harsh". Lows seems to be in the 10-15 range for a couple days maybe twice a winter. We had an ice storm that knocked power out for a week for the whole town about 2 years ago or so. Other than that, it really isn't bad. The summers have been brutal lately, many days between 104-110 this year.

I was gonna put my house up for sale come spring, but I would sell sooner if you were interested. Its about 75% remodeled. Near your price range, in town and just over 2100 sq ft. I have some outside pics I just took if you want me to send them to you. Best of Luck.

I don't know who your several people are, but I have lived around this area most of my life and have sold homes here within 10 days of them being on the market. This is within the last few months. I will be watching this forum. If you haven't already found somewhere to live, I would love to talk to you.

Lived in Altus years ago. Was in Altus about 4 years ago. Had a friend who lived in Altus and my friend was so blown out on speed or looking for pills it was very sad. Do yourself a favor only hang out with GI's and let them tell you where to go to have beers whatever. Beware of the redneck trash in that town... Oh yes one more thing! Some of these people not all take kindness as being a weakness just be careful. I'm sure you'll do just fine.... Good Luck

I wouldn't live on the SW part of town. It is low income, but it isn't just black people, it's whites and mexicans, too. Cops do go on that side of town. Hell, their police station is right there by it. People should really have all of the facts before being so quick to comment.
