For the seventh year in row, Texas has come out on top. On Allied Van Lines’ 44th Annual Magnet States Report, Texas once again captured the #1 spot for highest net relocation gains (inbound moves minus outbound moves).
The net relocation gains for Texas continues to decrease. The net relocation gains for 2009, 2010, and 2011 were 2,000, 1,640, and 1,556, respectively. The housing market is to blame for the decrease in the net relocation gains. People are unwilling to relocate because they are under water on their house and they can’t afford to take the loss.
Texas continues to out perform other states in net relocation gains because Texas continues to add jobs. Why would you want to relocate to Texas? Here’s my list of 20 reasons why I LOVE living in Spring Texas.

From the beginning she was extremely up front and honest about exactly what we would need to do to get our house sold. We had an incredibly tight timeline, that she explained would be difficult to make - but she helped us make it happen and our house was under contract in 2 days! She had recommendations for all our home repair needs and they were all professional and fairly priced. She worked hard to really sell our offer for our new home - she was able to pull off the tight timeline, securing a rent back from our old house so we had time to move out, and a contingency for our new home. Definitely exceeded our expectations. She was so helpful along the way - as first time home sellers we really relied on her and we feel lucky to have worked with her! You will not regret working with Jill! read less
