Why you need to move to Texas

Why do people often say Texas is its own country? Job growth could be one factor. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Texas cities continue to lead the country in jobs. The Lone Star State’s beautiful capital – Austin – takes the top spot with four other Texas cities following.

Moral of this story? You need to contact me to find you a home in Texas!

  1. I’m a 4th generation Texan currently living in Georgia (over 20 years now). Georgia is a beautiful and historically interesting state, but I can not wait until I can move back to Texas!!

    Austin is a wonder place and I’d certainly consider it a top choice when I retire!

  2. Austin and Dallas are two the beautiful cities to live in Texas, United States. With more people relocating to Texas, the real estate industry has recorded a growth in the recent years. In fact, people are looking for different types of real estate properties in Texas including apartments, villas, short term rentals and so on. In such a scenario, its always important to look for proper information on the properties to get the best deal.

  3. It is very interesting to see that Texas is leading the U.S. for job growth, which is a very clear indication that it is paving the way for economic recovery. Surely all other cities and states should take note of Austin, and the other major cities in Texas. This could not only be something the rest of the U.S. have to learn but also the rest of the world. It would be interesting to see the correlation between job creation and the property market within Texas to see if the state also leads the way in terms of development projects and real estate price rises.

  4. Look at the top5 cities creating and sustaining jobs and economic growth in 2010. 4 cities from TX..Amazing

    2011 2010
    1 14 San Antonio, TX MSA
    2 9 El Paso, TX MSA
    3 50 Fort Collins-Loveland, CO MSA
    4 2 Austin-Round Rock, TX MSA
    5 1 Killeen-Temple-Fort Hood, TX MSA

  5. As you know the job situation in Wisconsin is a matter of contention right now. The Gov says there are 30K+ new jobs and his opposition says the state has lost 5K jobs. Makes me want to move to Austin!

  6. Young, happy and smart — that’s three things that businesses like in their employees– making Austin an ideal place for companies to set up shop. Also business friendly.

  7. This is great news for the local real estate market both residential and commercial and the local economy. It seems that at least in my market that when big businesses are hiring it breeds the need for more middle sized company positions and more mom and pops stores opening up.

  8. As the Broker of Record for Milestone Silver Realty Ltd. ; I am always interested in what other Real Estate practitioners have to say and what they are doing with their blogs and websites. Each year we spend the winter in Florida however after spending some time with this particular blog it seems that we ought to be considering Texas.

  10. 2yrs back I had to shift to Texas as I got a job in Texas. Earlier I lived at New Jersey and owned a house. Planned to sell my house before my moving to Texas but it was not possible to to the low prices prevailing there. I even consulted a real estate agent but it did not work out for me. Finally I singed a contract for 2yrs to rent the house. Hope everything goes well and I can sell my property at New Jersey.

  11. I have a friend in the Austin area and he says real estate and business is booming. My dad sells specialized construction materials and he has shipped quite a bit out to the Austin area. Happy to see business his great out that way. We are starting to move some dirt again here in Clermont, Florida. Hopefully we are on our way back up too!
