Because there is no state income tax in Texas, property taxes are generally higher than other states, making a tax break for homeowners very attractive. Most of Selma housing is comprised of subdivisions or master planned communities. Some of these are quite affluent, like Live Oak Hills, Retama Springs, the Trails of Kensington, Chelsea Crossing and more. Most rentals in Selma are houses in these subdivisions. Apartments/duplexes are fairly rare in Selma.
