A: Dallas has great housing values compared with many other parts of the country and our cost of living is incredibly affordable, so we attract new residents from all over the country. The greatest influx I have seen by far is from California and the Northeast, mainly because of corporate relocation or job opportunities. But I have started seeing a lot of parents who are moving to Dallas to be near their children and grandchildren. c: 214.803.3787 | firstname.lastname@example.org
A: We see a great deal of investors from California and foreign countries, notably China. They are moving their investments into Texas because of the growth they find here. Texas and Dallas-Fort Worth have a reputation as a business-friendly environment – with corporate relocation incentives, low cost of living and land availability making us a stable investment. We have created a climate in which businesses enjoy stable, steady cash flow – that’s a huge plus. c: 972.523.9740 | email@example.com | jameskeoughan.com
A: Young people have become drawn to this area for a lot of different reasons. If they have to choose Dallas or a city outside the Sunbelt, the choice is Dallas. We have a strong job market, and it’s a good place to raise a family. And they’re coming from all over – not just California and the Northeast. We recently helped a client from Chicago look for a home because he is relocating his business here. c: 214.457-0417 | firstname.lastname@example.org | gioiagoyer.com
A: The simplest answer is that they’re coming from everywhere – but most are moving to our region from California and the East Coast. We’re seeing a lot of migration spurred by corporate relocations. Dallas-Fort Worth – and Texas as a whole – have created an environment, in terms of taxes and incentives, which attracts new businesses. People are coming here for work, but they’re planning to stay. They’re not looking for temporary housing; they’re buying homes they plan to settle into. c: 214.957.3547 | email@example.com
