Is this because you get quite a bit for your buck in Texas? Or at least that's what I've heard.
I know it's likely not everywhere but I've seen a couple of those listings that have homes of the same price in different areas and the houses in Texas are ridiculously huge.
Sort of thing where don't really mind paying a little more for the property taxes because the property they get is substantially cheaper than in other states type of deal?
[View Full Quote]As for two entirely different economic models; A good example is California vs Texas. The 1st has crippling taxes yet is still swimming in debt and borderline bankrupt, the other has low taxes yet brings in way better rates of revenue to the state coffers due to a far better business atmosphere and steady economic growth.
Cali should be the dream destination with all of of it's beauty, yet other than what is coming in from from south of the border, people and companies are leaving. Phil Mickelson too, possibly
Is Texas really all that well off? I think I remember seeing something a while ago that said something different.
Of course it was a while back so they could have made some serious headway in the last year and half or so. This the case?
there is a new oil boom in Texas, the economy is climbing back to what it was once. That along with our govenor trying to get california companies to relocate to texas.
