Tradition – Texas is the place to be!

The prospect of leaving your home and everything familiar is daunting. It can also be very exciting with promising employment opportunities, good quality of life, inexpensive standard of living, presence of top performing healthcare facilities, and good weather for most times of the year, just to name a few. As you will need a home to settle in, it is also smart to live in a place where real estate and housing look good. If you are contemplating changing your address or living in another state or country, it is worthwhile to consider Texas. Here are a few reasons why Texas is a good place to be.

Moving is an expensive decision. However, if it will help you make a decision, know that there has been a surge in the number of international home buyers flocking to the US, and Texas is among those getting a high percentage of buyers along with the states of California, Florida and Arizona. A significant percentage of foreign buyers are from Canada, United Kingdom and Australia. Closely tailing are international homebuyers from China and Mexico.

With the water temperature in the 80s and a clear sky, you would love the beaches in the Lone Star State. If you look forward to spending long lazy hours in the beach alone or with your family, the beaches in this state are enough of an attraction. A recent ranking list published by San Antonio Express-News shows Texas to be running fourth just behind New York, California and Mississippi. The Sunshine State (Florida), known for its extensive shoreline, touristy beaches and water sports, comes in at number 10.

It is Well-sought by Job Seekers

A recent report shows that Texas leads in location desirability for job hunters especially in jobs related to oil and mining. This finding is substantiated by the data gathered by Indeed Hiring Lab, a research institute dedicated in advancing knowledge related to the management of human resource. The study reveals that even people living in other US states are doing active job searches in Texas.

Texas is a Leader in “Smart Homes’

If you will live in Texas, you will also benefit from its “smart homes” under the energy management and monitoring program that works to reduce energy bills. While this program is in still in infantile stage in other states, it is already operational and advancing fast in Texas. Based on the results of a survey undertaken by Accenture PLC consulting firm, the estimated interest is projected to grow from 7 to about 57 percent in the following 5 years or so, if the electric market will stay competitive.

An Inexpensive Place to Live

With the volatility of the economy, cheap living is almost always among the most important factors to consider when looking for a new place to live. For instance, using the cost of living index in College Station, it is cheaper at 93.70 than the US average at 100. The real estate market is also strong here based on the performance of the homes for sale in College Station TX despite nationwide or global problems in real estate.

All these recent reports are proving that Texas is one great place to be. If these are among the factors you consider to be important to you and your family, you just found the location for your new home.
