Texas Ranks #1 Again!

Nationwide, Texas ranks number one for largest amount of people migrating into our state. It’s true!  Texas Association of Realtors’ 2014 Relocation Report shows that almost 600,000 people moved here from other states last year. Guess where the majority came from? You are correct…California. But Floridians and Oklahomans move here too!

Top 3 States Entering Texas:

  1. California (66,318)
  2. Florida (32,619)
  3. Oklahoma (29,169)
