Originally published in the summer of 2010, the subject matter in the following post is still relevant for Texans in 2016 and has lots of historical interest.
An article from the College Station Texas, Real Estate Center reports that "One word describes the future of Texas real estate - population."
"More people are moving to Texas than are moving out. These new adult Texans need housing the day they arrive. That is more good news for a real estate industry that has already fared better most states during the latest economic downturn."
For more information, read "The Changing Face of Texas" in the July issue of Tierra Grande magazine, the flagship periodical of the Real Estate Center. It is online at http://recenter.tamu.edu/pdf/1938.pdf.
