In 2008, over 10 million people moved from one county to another. Movement into a city creates demand for housing driving real estate prices up. Dramatic movement out of a city can cripple real estate markets causing housing prices to free fall which is what happened to the Detroit MI real estate market.
The interactive mapping tool from Forbes shows people movement in to and out of counties across the U.S. Unfortunately, it does not show movement on a city by city basis so we can’t view movement in and out of Spring Texas directly.
The red lines are people moving in and the black lines are people moving out of Harris County.
Note: The data is from 2008 and it comes with limitations as it only reports inter-county moves for more than 10 people.
Over the last several years, I have helped numerous people from California, Florida, and the East Coast relocate to Spring Texas so I wasn’t surprised to see people moving from those areas into Harris County.

This process was extremely difficult for me, as my father passed away last year. Jill listened to EVERY story I had, and there were a lot of them! She allowed me to share the memories of the house, which helped me prepare to let it go.
She is very knowledgeable in what to and what not to do in regards to getting the home ready to sell, what to tackle during the negotiation process and she made the closing extremely convenient. She was thoughtful enough to place the "sold" sign on the property a week in advance, to allow me time to process it all.
Paying constant attention to what is happening around your listing is one of JIll's many strengths. Her goal is to get you the most money for your property, and she has different strategies to that end result.
I not only gained a new realtor, but in JIll, I also gained a friend! I will be forever grateful for her through this tough process and I know my Dad would have loved her! "Thanks," will never be enough! read less
