For the past few years people have been leaving major cities to relocate in less populated areas. That trend has intensified since 2020. Young people are most likely to be making the move, including Millennials who are often moving into their first homes. Homes are often more affordable in mid-sized cities (with populations between 50,000 and 100,000) than in large cities. Mid-sized cities are also seen as better places to raise a family. MoveBuddha studied the 2020 figures to compile its rankings of 101 Most Popular Mid-Sized Cities for Movers in 2021.
Texas had 15 cities included in the rankings. Texas is a popular relocation destination due to factors such as freedom from state taxes, good employment prospects and agreeable climate. In MoveBuddha’s category of “physical surroundings,” all 5 top cities were in Texas. In quality of life ratings, social and economic factors, Texas had 4 of the 5 top cities.
Many of the top cities were suburbs of major metropolises. Rowlett is a DFW suburb with good access to Dallas via President George Bush Turnpike.
