AUSTIN, TX. – Thanks to a recent article from U.S. News & World Report we know that Austin is the second most popular city in the United States for relocation.

Their report confirms what Austin residents have already known, especially since the city continues to have roughly 100 people move here every day.

Population Increased To 1.8 Million during 5 Year Period

For example: during the period of 2010 to 2014 Austin Texas had 8.86 net migration, and our population expanded to 1.8 million.

Some of the reasons for Austin becoming a huge destination for relocation include a blossoming tech community which has had many comparisons to Silicon Valley, a median annual salary of $48,150, and a still affordable median home price of $240,000.
