Fostering the growth of existing businesses, which has been one of Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s focuses over the past several years, has helped build a strong economic base to draw from — assisting in a huge wave of inbound corporate relocations over the past 18 months.

Gov. Perry’s Office of Economic Development & Tourism, Texas has drawn 24 corporate relocations from outside the state 2012-2013, compared to 16 relocations in 2010-2011 combined.

Texas won Site Selection magazine’s Governor’s Cup again for 2012, which is awarded to the state with the most new and expanded corporate facilities announced over the year.


The Lone Star State crowned the top spot in the nation with 270 projects more than the second-best state.

The good news for housing is that price gains next year are expected to be only about half as strong as in 2013, when sellers stayed on the sidelines.


That's good news. "For a sustainable recovery you want to see more balance between buyers and sellers," says David Stiff, chief economist at CoreLogic Case-Shiller, which is forecasting a 6.8% rise in the median home value for 2014.


Inventory is already improving. Nationwide, the number of homes for sale in September rose 1.8% vs. a year earlier, according to the National Association of Realtors.


"It will still be a sellers' market in 2014, given how far we have before inventory is back to normal," says Jed Kolko, chief economist at Trulia, noting the supply of homes in September was still about 15% below historical norms.


Buyers will also enjoy an advantage next year as real estate investors are expected to be less of a factor. Why? In an improving market, there are fewer distressed homes, which they covet.
