2, since texas is tornado capital of the US and I dunno where "the border" is (texas border? mexico border? Canada border? east coast? weast coast? the gulf?
If both are in texas than neither, and tbh neither regardless, I'd rather run my own biz, and do so in another state.0
What Girls & Guys Said
I would move to Houston. I assume you are talking about the southern border and it is currently being overrun with illegals.0
Entirely dependent on you but I would think give the big city a go then move it to the border when you've had enough, having earned money, got the perks and training.0
I hear Houston is ugly so not there. I am hopeful for you beautiful 28 year old 🥰0
Option A sound better, but I'm not a fan of moving away from family.0
Stop corporate slavery. Very rare to get good family feel at large corporations0
Having a house on the border won't help you even if it's paid off. The cartels will be running through your property all the time. They might even threaten your family.11
Depends on the value of the house0
You need to pick the one that make you most happy0

What border are you referring to? The Mexican border? Why the hell would anyone want to live there?
I'd personally pick option A, but in reality, when faced with a choice like this, I always go with: BOTH! You should finish paying off the house by 28, then rent it out to some college kids or family members or something and take the big job in Houston. If it doesn't work out, you'll always have a place to go back home to.
In any situation like this, the safer option is usually the better one, because the other one has too many unpredictable variables that can go wrong. What if you get laid off one month into the Houston job? What if the job isn't what they promised you and you devoted your new life to a lie? What if the job just sucks or you get bored with it? Safer is better. But I always go with the "try one out, then try the other one out" scenario, cause I hate regrets or "choosing poorly."
Near the Mexican border is actually safer than Houston, and has ranked as having better quality of life and easy access to affordable healthcare in Mexico that won't bankrupt you.
