Why Texas is the place to be!

Michael Stuart's curator insight, November 1, 5:14 PM

One of the biggest attractions of companies to Houston is its skilled labor. Harvey said the workforce runs includes all types of professionals, including a very high concentration of engineers, second only to Silicon Valley.


Other attraction and retention factors include having a strong financial depth, great job market and an economy that is almost recession-proof. Houston, as well as Dallas and San Antonio, also boast a comparatively low cost of living.


In Austin, quality of life is also an important attraction, and having an environment that promotes creativity, the arts and technology, all of which tend to attract a younger group of people, is what this city does best.

"The most preferred landscape included a sophisticated design with large deciduous, evergreen, and annual color plants and colored hardscape," according to Niemiera. Adding different plant sizes to a front yard, for example, can boost curb appeal, as well as mixing fruit trees and flowers for added color.
