Austin’s National Appeal Continues to Surge as Top Destination for Both Relocating Households and Corporate Moves

If it feels like Austin is spending a lot of time in the national spotlight lately, you aren’t mistaken. The proudly weird city that first gained acclaim as the Live Music Capital of the World has grown to become a mainstay either at or near the top of most every rating of the most desirable cities in the U.S. over the past decade.

The list of accolades runs deep, touching upon this Hill Country gem’s appeal for both business and lifestyle. A sampling includes Best Place to Live in America, Least Stressed Cities in America, Most Opportunities for Job Seekers, Healthiest Cities in America, Best Cities to Work from Home, Best Places to Retire and Best Cities for Female Entrepreneurs, among countless others.

It comes as no surprise then that Austin has recently been named the No. 1 Destination City for Relocating Households and the No. 3 Destination City for Corporate Moves. The reasoning for these high rankings can be seen in major announcements by a who’s who of top corporations choosing to bring their workforces to town, including Tesla, Hewlett Packard Technologies, and Oracle. There’s also Silcon Valley’s Airtable, Canva, Flex Health, BAE Systems, Boston Consulting Group and QuestionPro. And let’s not forget the continued expansion of major companies that already have a presence in Austin, such as Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Google.

No other city in the U.S. grew faster over the past decade, with approximately 120 residents arriving daily. The newest Austinites hail mostly from California, followed by New York, Florida, Illinois, Arizona and Colorado.

As Austin’s population grows, so too does the demand for attractive, affordable and flexible home designs in highly desirable neighborhoods across Central Texas. Families of all sizes are seeking places to call home that offer great amenities and schools, while also being in close proximity to business, shopping, dining and entertainment.
