Moving to Texas?
It’s no secret that Texans looove Texas. We’re talking true, deep, unconditional love. As of late, it appears that “out of staters” have fallen for that Texan charm, as well! In the last decade, Texas has become the fastest growing state in America. DFW is the 2nd “move to” destination, falling short only to Austin! In addition to our southern hospitality and good-looking people, here are a few other reasons we believe people are choosing to move to our great state.
Four words: no state income tax. This is a huge draw for large companies, small businesses and entrepreneurs alike. Big corporations like Tesla, Google, and Apple can offer more for their employees here than in other states. This growth in business has boosted our already strong economy, providing greater employment opportunities and higher salaries. Win-win!
Ample land and home prices. Enough said.
Our cool factor has definitely been on the rise over the last decade. Nightlife is happening in big cities like Dallas, Fort Worth, Austin, and Houston. This includes dining, sporting events and teams, music, museums, night clubs, and shopping. For the more outdoorsy individuals, we’ve got plenty of ways for you to get out and enjoy the infamous Texas sky. And though our summers are rouuugh, Spring and Fall here more than make up for it!
Texans are serious about our food. In addition to traditional southern, down-home cooking, we’ve got award-winning barbecue, plenty of fine dining, Tex-mex (i.e. queso) and authentic Mexican cuisine. Just like churches, you can find street tacos on almost every corner. For the more adventurous or health-conscious eaters, we have a variety of Asian cuisine, acai power bowls (for the Californians-turned-Texans), and farm-to-table.
Friday Night Lights is real.
If Saturday college games are more your thing, we’ve got you covered. Students from all over move to Texas for higher education. We have over 200 colleges and universities, including many high ranked schools. Colleges provide ample employment and bring loads of energy and excitement to our communities!
Southern hospitality is real. In general, Texans are friendly, authentic and welcoming. You can’t walk down the street without a “howdy” or hello from a stranger. People here genuinely want to know their neighbors! We depend on one another, support local businesses, and care for those in and around our community.
In all of Texas, Fort Worth is our favorite! Cowtown, as it’s often referred to, exhibits the very best of Texas. It has everything you could want from a big city, yet maintains that wonderful small town feel. We have a top-rated downtown, a vibrant cultural district with several world-renowned art museums, the historic Stock Show and Rodeo, and miles and miles of beautiful trails along the Trinity River. Despite the incredible and positive growth, our city has not lost touch with its rich, deep-rooted history. The homes here reflect both the old and the new; our history and our future.
If you’re considering a move to North Texas, let us be the first to welcome you! Like anywhere, Texas isn’t perfect, but it is pretty great. We know starting over isn’t easy. We would love to come alongside you to help you find and settle into your new home and community. From our LEAGUE family to yours, we truly hope you’ll grow to love Texas as much as we do. Please reach out and let us know how we can serve you best.
