Census: Hey, Let's Move to Texas

Posted by Teresa at 9:51 AM


I guess Americans are beginning to realize what a jewel the state of Texas
is
:
DALLAS - Four Texas metropolitan areas were among the biggest
population gainers as Americans continued their trend of moving to
the Sun Belt in 2006 and 2007, according to Census Bureau estimates
to be released Thursday.

Dallas-Fort Worth added more than 162,000 residents between July
2006 and July 2007, more than any other metro area. Three other
Texas areas — Houston, Austin and San Antonio — also cracked the
top 10.
We have nice warm weather throughout the year, wide open spaces and low taxes.
What's not to love? Oh yeah, did I also mention we have beaches:



The AP article identifies another reason why people are moving The Lone
Star State:
Ann Sekesan, a pharmacy technician, moved her family from
Pennsylvania to suburban Fort Worth last June after seeing
spacious homes in Texas for under $200,000 on a television
show.

"After we saw that on TV, my husband and I looked at each
other and said, 'Have you ever been to Texas?" Sekesan said.
"It's amazing the size of a home you can get down here. It's just
incredible."
One down side: The drive to get from one Texas city to another is long.
