Austin tops list as Recovery Capital of America

Jun 30, 2010

“Looking for a place to take advantage of the recovery? Try Texas.

The Lone Star state’s major metro areas–Austin, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Houston and San Antonio–are all emerging from the recession better than their counterparts in many areas of the country. Austin is a government and tech center. Dallas and Ft. Worth get a boost from major corporate operations located there. Houston is a hub for the profitable oil industry and the U.S. military gives San Antonio a lift.”

According to an article on Forbes.com Austin is leading the way out of the recession.  This is something I have been telling people all a long.   The market in Austin is great.  There are jobs available to those who look and lines at Best Buy almost every day.   I personally stood inline for 3 hours for the new Iphone just last week.  Restaurants are crowed and it feels like the good times never left Austin.

The Brookings Metro Monitor report tracks how the 100 largest metro areas in the country are emerging from the Great Recession, based on historical data.   Austin is also on other Forbes lists.   #10 Best Place For Business and Careers, #2 Economic Growth Projected, #6 Net Migration, #2 for Job Growth, and #45 for Subprime Mortgages.  Things are looking good for Austin.  Moving to Austin is one of the best things I have ever done.  It was so good that I now help other move to the city.  If you are interested in moving to Austin check out our website and start your home search today.

About Ed Neuhaus

El Capitan is a nickname given to me years ago. This was just before or just after I was married. No, unfortunately it was not given to me by my wife. She has far better and worse things to call me. I sailed a lot a young man and I know a thing or two about sailboats. Maybe that is why I got the nickname. Maybe my nicknamers were thinking I was strong as a rock like El Capitan in Yosemite National Park. I hope it was because they thought of me as their leader. I am el Capitan of our ship, Broker for our company, father of two, husband, sailor, drummer, soon to be pilot, and all around bad ass. Ok maybe that last part about the bad ass is too much. But hey, why not. BTW, did I tell you I want to be a pilot? no wait, really, I want to be a pilot. You know the guys who fly planes. (this would all be a lot better in a video soliloquy than in typed form, but use the tools you got right?)
