Welcome to Texas!
Posted In: Residential Posted by James Brockway on 12/19/2012

As reported by the National Association of Realtors in their December 11, 2012 Daily Real Estate News article, home owners migrating across the U.S is on the rise again, compared to 2011, and movement from California to Texas is the second largest city to city move for migrators.  In 2012, just under 59,000 homeowners moved from California to Texas, just shy of the 59,288 movers from New York to Florida.  While the latter move is not a surprise as New Yorkers have long loved retiring to the sunny climate of Florida, what could be driving the move from California to Texas?  Well, maybe it’s because Texas is one of only seven states without an income tax.  Or, maybe it’s because of the boom in the oil and gas market as oil companies are drilling in the “Eagle Ford Shale” area of south Texas creating thousands of jobs.  Perhaps it’s that you can get more home for your money.

Whatever the reason, welcome to Texas!
