FROM MY PERSPECTIVE
They’re definitely coming from California.
And, Florida. And, Houston, Boston, Austin, New York and Chicago.
The numbers now prove what we’ve always known at our brokerage: North Texas is one terrific place to live.
The Dallas Morning News recently reported some eye-opening stats: Moves from California to Dallas-Fort Worth were up more than 19 percent in 2020, from 2019. New York relocations were up even more: 22-plus percent. D Magazine says that our area added nearly 120,000 people during the pandemic, thanks to relocations and, yes, new babies born here.
The word is out. Boundless job opportunities. A lot of house for the money. Our warm and wonderful climate. (Except for July and August, but don’t tell the others.)
While all of this is very exciting, it’s absolutely no surprise to the agents of Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty. They know every nook and cranny of this amazing metroplex — and why more than six million people now call it home.
For folks thinking about moving here, or who already know they are, we’ve gathered some of that unique insider information into a handy new publication. We call it Inside Texas, and it is loaded with facts, trivia, must-know neighborhoods and must-try places. We’ve got the scoop on famous regional foods, cultural experiences, lake living, architectural styles, helpful services we offer, even guides to schools and medical facilities. It’s so packed that I bet you’ll learn a few things even if you live here already.
Do you know the seven hottest neighborhoods? Do you know which nearby lake has been called one of the best in the country for a certain group? Do you know which Dallas restaurant serves up a legendary dessert called the Chocolate Glob?
You will. Dig in at briggsfreeman.com/relocation-guide. We made one for Fort Worth and one for Dallas — and everywhere in between. If you know of anyone headed this way, direct them to Inside Texas.
And, if they think the magazine is helpful, wait until they talk to one of our agents.
