Founded in 1904, Harlingen has grown slowly but steadily since its incorporation in 1910. Though the local economy is rooted in agriculture, manufacturing, the wholesale and retail trade and a collection of service industries have expanded the economy base. The average family income is $34,015 and a majority of workers who reside in Harlingen have blue-collar jobs, but 41% of all residents are white-collar employees. You can find small homes for well below $100,000, but a family might want something with more room. One example is an attractive brick, three-bedroom, three-bath home listed for $124,900. Need something larger? You might consider a four-bedroom, two-bath home of 2,161 square feet for $169,950.
