WHY PEOPLE ARE MOVING TO DALLAS – FORT WORTH IN TEXAS
Although Texas’ history may be considered over rated to some, but a vast majority of the netizens are generally looking at Texas in a different light. Many are taking the big leap forward. People from across the nation are seriously considering moving here – the Lone Star State. Texas has 6 of the country’s 20 biggest cities. You can be in Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, Austin, Fort Worth or El Paso. Each of these cities has their own unique charm and a character to them but will never compromise the quality of life that you want to achieve.
I live in Dallas and it is safe to say that it is one of the most in demand places to migrate to. I can’t blame them - it is the economic and cultural hub of North Texas. Toyota - the world’s number 1 automaker even chose Plano as its new home together with its employees. You can list out a thousand reasons not to choose this community, but the pros just simply outweigh the cons. Here are some of the most common reasons why people want to move here in Dallas Fort Worth.
LOW TAXES - Texas in general has no personal or corporate income tax. Per resident, it collects roughly $3,500 in taxes overall (including all state and local taxes) every year. By way of contrast, California collects $4,900 per resident — New York collects a whopping $7,400 per resident. Both states, of course, have income taxes. People are going to Texas because it’s a low-cost, low-tax state. Texas has the lowest yearly tax bill per household in America.
LOW COST OF LIVING - The lower house prices, along with a generally low cost of living — helped along by cheap labor, cheap produce and cheap gas (currently about $3 a gallon) — really matter when it comes to quality of life. You do not need to spend much to obtain a good quality of life. Food, rent and health care, consumer prices, utilities and transport are cheaper here compared to other state.
REAL ESTATE IS CHEAP - Texas is a huge state and constitutes a massive land area. Since land is cheap, housing is cheap. Land acquisition is also very efficient. Unlike in other states, most middle class family in Texas can find an affordable property and call it their own.
JOBS - According to US Bureau of Labor Statistics, Texas was able to add 274,700 new jobs – that is 12% of all jobs added nationwide and 51,000 more than California added. Texas created nearly one third of the country’s highest paying jobs.
EXQUISITE FOOD - Dallas Fort Worth has a list of amazing restaurants. From Japanese to Korean cuisine Mediterranean and American we have it all. Don’t be surprised. There are many other places springing up to provide sustenance and eating opportunities to the growing population.
FAMILY FRIENDLY – Texas is very popular with raising families. San Antonio for one is home to the largest community of gay parents. In Texas, you can have a reasonable mortgage and pretty good schools. And restaurants are known to be family friendly. Texans in general are very friendly and down to earth. Race relations in Texas are good and most Texans are very tolerant of each other. The larger cities are also very diverse.
GOOD SCHOOLS - Texas has a strong educational system. They tale care of minority and economically disadvantaged students as graduation rates show. Texas is also home to many world class colleges like University of Texas, Texas A&M, Baylor and Rice University. Texas also allows parents the freedom to home-school their children.
ARTS AND CULTURE – Texas boasts many huge and magnificent art installations and exhibits. The museum district offers 19 different art museums all within walking distance. Highlights include the Museum of Fine Arts, which houses several unique and priceless collections, it also displays travelling exhibits.
TEXANS ARE NORMAL PEOPLE - The state likes to proclaim itself as an unpretentious, down-to-earth place where people are easy to get along with. As John Steinbeck wrote: "Texas has a tight cohesiveness perhaps stronger than any other section of America." And for people with conservative values, it could be a natural home, although demographic shifts have prompted speculation it will be a Democratic state in the future.
NO PERMIT TO CARRY A GUN – It is important in Texas that your right to safety is being upheld. You can own and carry a gun without a jiffy. You do not need a license or permit to buy a gun. It is easy for law abiding citizens to get a concealed hand gun.
