More than 10 Reasons Why Texas is America’s Future

Highland Park Village Theatre Marquee

DFW’s Economic Forecast was presented at Highland Park Village Theatre

Dallas is a hot city for young professionals and big company relos … We have been learning more and thought we should share a few resources for the real facts and opinions about why our city is so attractive:

TIME Magazine published an issue with the cover title The United States of Texas with this article about the “10 Reasons”. To confirm these reasons and many more, Mike Rosa, Senior VP of Economic Development at Dallas Regional Chamber, presented amazing economic, geographic, and logistic facts at Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s Intl’ Realty’s weekly meeting. Did you know that DFW has almost as many tech jobs as Houston and Austin COMBINED? And the DFW area produces over 30% of the state’s economy, yet we are ~25% of the population?

If you are looking for verification or more reasons, the Chamber’s website is a great resource for DFW facts: Cost of Living, Taxes, Economic Indicators, Schools, Salaries, Transportation, and more. Check it out … www.dallaschamber.org
