The best place to flip a house in Texas surprisingly is not Waco

'Fixer Upper' fans may be quick to call Waco as Texas' best city to flip a house, but that actually isn't right,

"Fixer Upper" fans may be quick to call Waco Texas' best city to flip a house, but that couldn't be further from the truth, according to a recent list from WalletHub.

Surprisingly, the financial advice site named El Paso as the best place in the entire nation to flip a home, and five other Texas cities were among the top 50. The other Texas cities were Lubbock (No. 11), Laredo (No. 29), Corpus Christi (No. 32), and Grand Prairie (No. 48). Houston wasn't ranked high and actually landed at No. 122 out of the 150 cities on the list.

Likely to the surprise of all "Fixer Upper" fans out there, Waco didn't even make it on the list.

To generate the list, WalletHub looked at various factors including purchasing price, the percentage of home flips, local income, and average remodeling costs.
