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.

We lived in the area for about 3 years before taking the house-hunting plunge and truly could not have chosen a better realtor to work with. Jill is professional and patient, she is an incredible resource who is 100% there for her clients at all times. We had a lot of questions and didn't want to pay any closing costs or prepaid costs out of pocket - Jill is a Master Certified Negotiation Expert and it SHOWS. We got exactly what we wanted at the price we wanted AND had several bonuses thrown in, including appliances and gutters. She was there for inspections/walk-throughs and kept in contact with our builder's salesperson as well. If you want a strong realtor who is also pleasant to work with (which I've learned is rare), then Jill is the realtor for you!! read less
