As I have been sitting at the airport over the last couple of weeks, I have been pleasantly surprised by the number of conversations that have developed with people who are looking to relocate to Dallas.
It is no surprise that Dallas has a strong economy, but I think after being here so long, many of us take it for granted. Dallas is one of the hottest cities in the US and many corporations are looking to relocate here due to Texas’s pro business environment.
Talking with all of these people looking to move here reminds me just how blessed we are to be building beautiful custom homes in one of America’s best economies!
Here is what Forbes said about Dallas recently:
Texas dominates the ranking with five cities in the top 25, led by eighth-ranked Dallas. The Dallas economy surged 6.2% last year—second best in the nation—to $254 billion. The job outlook in Dallas is strong with 2.9% annual growth expected through 2014, according to Moody’s. Dallas is home to 17 billionaires, more than any other U.S. city besides New York and San Francisco.
