Patten Properties, a leader in premium recreation and residential property continues to see growing demand for property in Texas, especially from buyers moving here from other States. 

“Buyers are searching for the perfect place to put down roots – welcoming communities that embody Southern hospitality and charm, together with conveniences, amenities and natural beauty all around, plus tax benefits and a dynamic employment market. Texas has all this and more with world-class shopping, culture and sports, as well as top hospitals and health care facilities to suit the most discerning residents,” says Andrea Castro, Land Specialist.

Texas, the nation’s second most populous state had the second largest gain in net domestic migration in recent years and during the two decades, the two largest Texas metropolitan areas, Dallas-Fort Worth and Houston moved from below the top five to positions four and five respectively.

Data shows a significant number of Californians moving to Texas, with over 80,000 — many in the high-tech sector — relocated there in 2019 alone. Dozens of California-grown companies such as Oracle, Hewlett-Packard and Tesla moved here also.

Houston is home to over 20 Fortune 500 company headquarters and one of the largest concentrations of U.S. headquarters locations for companies from around the world. The city is home to top companies including Schlumberger, Sysco, Halliburton, Amazon, Accenture and IBM and Houston’s success as a top global market for headquarters is driven by its business-friendly climate, high-growth population and proximity to diverse professional and corporate services talent.

Houston offers one of the best business climates in the nation, being pro-growth, with low costs and low regulations, and with no corporate or personal income tax at the state level. Companies operating in Houston enjoy one of the lowest overall tax burdens in the country.

As a great global city, Houston offers incredible connectivity to destinations across the country and around the world, providing daily non-stop flights to more than 190 destinations. Corporate executives living in the Houston region also enjoy a low cost of living while maintaining a high quality of life with amenities of a world-class city.

As the 7th largest economy in the U.S. and with the nation’s youngest and most diverse talent pool, Houston truly is the top headquarters city of the Americas. 

Communities like Republic Grand Ranch just North of The Woodlands,  the No. 1 best city to live in America, are more in-demand than ever for good reason, as buyers know that life is better when you live in a place you love. Texas communities like this offer a lifestyle without compromises.
