Harris County a popular destination for Californians

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. (StorageCaf​é) – From 2010 to 2019, almost 690,000 Californians​​ relocated to Texas, according to a StorageCaf​é study.

Harris County was the top destination for Golden State expatriates, with over 8,400 Californians relocating there. Most of the move-ins came from Los Angeles. 

The median home price was 57 percent cheaper in Harris County than in Los Angeles County, a $482,010 price difference. The median home was also 577 sf larger. 

Californians have chosen Texas primarily for the extra living space, lower cost of housing, and competitive job opportunities. 

The rest of the top ten Texas counties for Californians last decade were:
  • Dallas County, 7,923 move-ins;
  • Travis County, 6,725;
  • Tarrant County, 6,623;​
  • Bexar County, 5,340;
  • Collin County, 5,294;
  • Denton County, 4,028;​​
  • Williamson County; 2,877;
  • El Paso County, 2,521; and
  • Bell County, 1,727.

Houston housing on track for record year

HOUSTON (Houston Association of Realtors) – Despite constrained inventory, buyers kept the Houston's housing​​ market strong in September, positioning it for a record year. 

According to the Houston Association of Realtors' (HAR) September 2​021 Market Update, single-family home sales rose 1.5 percent from September 2020 to 9,226 units sold. 

On a year-to-date basis, local home sales are 15.3 percent ahead of 2020’s record pace and up 21.6 percent compared with 2019.

Total dollar volume jumped 16.9 percent over the year to $4 billion. 

The median single-family home price climbed 13.3 percent to $300,000, while average price increased 13.4 percent to $372,408.

Texas personal income decreases

W​ASHINGTON (U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis) – Texas' personal income decreased 21.7 percent at an annual rate in second quarter 2021, according to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA). 

This comes after the ​metric increased 61.8 percent in the first quarter. 

​Transfer receipts decreased $144 bi​llion​​, accounting for more than the entire $108 billion decrease in personal income.

According to the BEA, the decrease in transfer receipts primarily reflected a reduction in direct economic impact payments provided by the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act and the American Rescue Plan Act and a decrease in state unemployment insurance compensation.

In Texas, earnings increased 12.9 percent in the second quarter. The increase in earnings reflected the continued economic recovery following the partial economic shutdown that began in the first quarter of 2020 after the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.
