According to a recent report from moving application Updater, Houston was the seventh most popular new home for Americans this year!

Top destinations include:

  1. Washington, D.C.
  2. Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex
  3. Los Angeles
  4. New York City
  5. Atlanta

Austin came in sixth.

What's the main appeal of these places? Jobs, cost of living, schools, and lifestyle.

Houston’s popularity was based upon a thriving job market, with the metro area growing to a total population of 6.7 million. Conroe was cited as the fastest-growing city in the U.S.

Beyond the traditionally robust oil-and-gas market, major drivers of Houston jobs include biotech, infotech, aerospace, medical, and the services industry. The city is quickly establishing itself as a world-class destination for arts, dining, and nightlife. In short, while Houston lacks mountains and beaches, it does offer people the opportunity to prosper and enjoy being part of a truly dynamic city.
