If you're considering moving to Houston from within the state or if you're relocating from another part of the country, congratulations! You have chosen one of the most dynamic, livable, and fastest-growing regions in the U.S. There are so many reasons to move to Houston, Texas, but we've rounded the top six reasons you should consider a move:
1) A Hot Job Market
With a thriving job market and a wide variety of industries to explore, it’s no wonder so many people are relocating to Houston. You can pursue careers in biotechnology, information technology, oil & gas, manufacturing, health care, and the aerospace industry. The average salary in Houston is $74,000. The most popular professions include Mechanical Engineer, Operations Manager, and Project Manager roles.
2) Top Universities
Houston is home to more than 20 colleges, universities, and technical schools, including the University of Houston, and Rice University, one of the nation’s leading research universities. Houston is also home to Texas Southern University, one of the largest historically black colleges and universities in the country.
3) The Food Scene
It could take a lifetime to eat your way through Houston’s 11,000 restaurants. Cajun or Tex-Mex, Banh Mi or BBQ… whatever you’re craving is here somewhere. If you are hankering for something Southern, try some of the award-winning chicken and waffles, oxtails, ham hocks, chitterlings, and smothered pork chops available.
4) Wellness & Outdoor Lifestyle
If you love green spaces and the great outdoors, there are 50,000 acres of parks in Houston. The park system includes some 370 parks — including accessible playgrounds and skate parks — and more than 220 green spaces. Another perk of living in Houston is easy access to the Gulf of Mexico beaches, known for their white sands and emerald waters. The 32-acre park along Galveston Bay offers swimming, a playground and tennis court, picnic areas, and even a skate park.
5) Houston Sports
When you move to Houston, know that you are moving to a major sports destination. Being the “Space City” means all of the major sports teams are named thematically: the Rockets (basketball), the Astros (baseball), the Dynamo FC (soccer), and of course, the Texans (football). Plus, with all of the local colleges and universities, you’ll also be able to root for a wide variety of other athletic events, from swimming to gymnastics to track and field.

There were some change orders but the options that were chosen were even better than the original! My walk thru was extremely informative. Rachel was great. Even though the last few dates were strict and had deadlines, they were still flexible with my work schedule.
