They're Coming To Texas
A 2015 Texas Relocation Report showed Texas landed at #2 (behind Florida) with 538,572 people moving to Texas from out of state. Leaving their states and leading the way to calling Texas "home" are large flocks of Californians, Floridians, Oklahomans, Louisianans and Illinoisans. Lone Star sticker shock may not enter their minds because, let's face it, we're blessed in Texas.
Yes, our BBQ is that good and we’ll stack our tacos up against anyone (we’re looking at you, California). Available jobs, low taxes, cheaper cost of living, affordable homes, and an array of big cities to choose from don’t hurt either.
Lone Star Sticker Shock
However, one thing those crossing into the Lone Star state may take for granted is the cost of homeowners insurance. Texas is more expensive than average. More claims, expensive repairs and catastrophe models all play a role in making our great state bigger not just in size and steaks, but also in the premiums homeowners pay.
So when out-of-towners become Texans, they may feel a little bit lighter in the wallet, but one thing is for sure . . . there’s always some good BBQ right around the corner.
