In the Texas Realtor's Texas Relocation Report for 2021, which was devised from census data, we find some interesting data that can only be increasing since this report was created last year. Here's what the report has to say in the Executive Summary...

  • Texas ranked second in the nation for relocation activity in 2019.
  • Texas welcomed 537,000 - 582,000 new residents in 2019.
  • This is the seventh year in a row that Texas attracted more than 500,000 new residents from out of state.
  • The Census also estimated 435,000 - 471,000 Texans moved to other states.
