4 Reasons to Let Texas Steal Your Heart
Don’t just think about it. Do it! The DFW area is a prime place to call home. As one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States, it has something for literally everyone. Microbreweries, cultural activities, some of the best sports teams in the nation, while still having the charm and hospitality that people expect from the country. Trust us when we say there is SO much more to do in Dallas, Texas than go to the rodeo and eat some barbecue, though we recommend doing both when you get here! DFW is a place sure to win your heart, but in case you need more convincing, The Castillo Group has compiled a list of four reasons to make it your home. Let’s dive on in!
1. The Real Estate is PHENOMENAL
Everything is bigger in Texas, except for the home prices. The median home value in DFW is 14% lower than the national average in suburban areas and 5% lower in metro areas. The average cost of a home in Dallas is about $185,000 with 2,400 square footage. Add this in with the average salary being about $62,000/yr and you’ve got yourself a deal! Which brings us to our next point…
2. The Job Market is Booming!
According to US News, the Dallas area has a 3.5% unemployment rate. With companies expanding and moving to Dallas every day, this makes the area a prime place for you to re-target your career. Toyota, Southwest, Living Spaces are just the tip of all the companies that call the DFW area their home. Plus, there is no income tax!
3. Eat some Barbecue
I know, I know, earlier we told you how there’s so much more to Texas than the barbecue, but one of the pros of moving to Texas really is the food! With down-home cooking, and tasty tacos on every corner, you’ll be sure to find something that appeases you! Babe’s Chicken and Torchy’s Tacos have both won food awards in D Magazine, and hey, if you look a little further you’ll notice that they also named us as a Top Producer and Best Realtor of 2019!
4. Excellent Education
If you have school-aged children and want a change of scenery, Dallas is a good place to move to. The ratio of children to teacher is 14-1! The DFW area is home to 70 nationally ranked private and public schools. It’s always nice knowing you have an education system you can trust.
Obviously, there are many more reasons why you should relocate to the Dallas/Fort Worth area. With the excellent job market, low housing costs, education, culture, and diversity, you’ll love calling this place home.
