As reported in this month’s issue of Newsmax, Texas is the number one business friendly state in the USA. Maybe that is why so many people are leaving other states and moving here, and moving specifically to the Austin area. Our five county area receives about 125 people “a day” and has done so for the last two years. The lease friendly state cited in the article was California followed by New York (anybody surprized?). An example cited in the article was that it takes 2 years longer and $200,000 more to open a Hardee’s restaurant in California than it does in Texas…incredible! So Hardee’s plans to open 300 of their restaurants in Texas…surprize! And that is why it is great to own Austin area real estate…people are coming here in droves and they need a place to live.
