Real estate is an investment that can pay off big—as long as you keep a close watch on the best markets to buy in.

And the prime location to invest in right this minute? Drumroll,'s Arlington, Texas.

According to a recent report from, a personal finance site, the city just west of Dallas—with a population of a little less than 400,000—saw a 10.3 percent increase in home values over a period of just two years.

There's more: With a median home price of $240,000, it's actually an affordable buy. (And in two years, your home could be worth $264,000, which isn't a bad rate of return.)

Did we mention Arlington is home to the Texas Rangers, Dallas Cowboys and the original Six Flags?
