Relocating a Business to Houston

I'm asked often by friends all over the country why they keep hearing about business relocating to Houston. Some facts showcased on the Greater Houston Partnership website might provide the best summary to such a phenomenon:

Number 1

Lowest cost of living among 24 largest metropolitan areas (ACCRA Cost of Living Index).

Fastest growing companies (Forbes Magazine).

Job Growth (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics).

Number of building permits (Demographia).

Number 2

Most popular city with movers (U-Haul National Migration Trend Report).

Texas –– Best Business Climate in the Nation (Site Selection).

Number 3

Fortune 500 Companies (Fortune Magazine).

Best Metros for Business (Forbes Magazine).

US Metros for Business and Careers (Forbes Magazine).

The list goes on and I encourage readers to check it out. Houston is great for business which is exactly why we are attracting companies, entrepreneurs, and individuals looking for opportunity both nation wide and around the world.
