Texas is #1 for RELOCATION, The Woodlands, TX #14 by FORBES

The Woodlands is ranked No. 14 on Forbes' America's Top 25 Best (Relocation) Places to Move list. 

Did you know that in 2009 more people moved to Texas than anywhere else in the United States?  There were nearly 2000 net relocations, that's inbound moves minus outbound moves.

This was for the 5th straight year in a row!    

The Woodlands was THE ONLY  Houston-area community to make the list, although seven other Texas communities - six in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and one in the Austin area - were also included.

The magazine ranked towns known as "Relovilles" (top relocation cities) - young, mid- and upscale suburbs near company plants and office parks outside major cities.

Pippa will work with all relocation companies, including the following:

  • Cornerstone Relocation Group
  • Lexicon
  • Primacy
  • Sirva
  • Weichert Relocation

Forbes used Census data to locate the towns, which boast populations of more than 25,000. Factors included the number of people in each town who were born out of state or abroad, who had moved into town from a considerable distance, moved within one to five years and moved for a job.

The Top 25 Relovilles have twice the incomes, twice the home values and home sizes, twice the college degrees, twice as many youth and half as many elderly, twice the divorce rates and twice the number of residents who vote Republican, according to the magazine's research.

The Woodlands is such a great place in Texas, you should be very busy with the relocations at this time of the year.
