5 of the 15 Fastest Growing Cities are in North Texas

Flag of TexasThe National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) released its list of the 15 fastest growing cities in the country. Cities in the Lone Star State made up over half of the list!

According to the NAR report, “The state of Texas is growing fast. The state has eight of the nation’s 15 fastest-growing cities and six of the top seven, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, which evaluated population increases in 2011 for cities with more than 100,000 residents.”

North Texas did exceptionally well with 5 of the 15 cities. Local cities on the list include Plano (#4), McKinney (#5), Frisco (#6), Denton (#7) and Carrollton (#14). North Texas is an excellent place to live due to low unemployment, reasonable housing prices,  good salaries, no state income tax, and a temperate climate. Many businesses are leaving other parts of the country and relocating to Texas for the same reasons.
