"I wasn't born here, but I got here as fast as I could."
That's an old saying about people moving to Texas. And it looks like people are still saying it, with Texas having seven of the top 20 cities for net in-migration in 2012. More people moved to the state in 2012 than moved out.
The San Antonio metro, comprising Bexar County, ranks fourth in the nation for net in-migration. A total of 5,601 new households were formed, according to the latest Texas Relocation Report published by the National Association of REALTORS and U-Haul. That’s nearly half the number of net households of 10,326 that moved to/from Texas last year. Bexar County rated tenth in the nation for newcomers from out of state, so much of the relocation has come from other places in Texas.
Other counties in the northeast section of the San Antonio metro were mentioned in the report, too. Comal County, home to New Braunfels, ranked 14 in net household formation.
Guadalupe County, where Schertz and Cibolo are located, saw a significant inflow, but didn’t rate its own page of statistics. With all the growth occurring along the northeast IH 35 corridor, perhaps it will be featured in the 2013 report.
