The summer season is a very popular time for American households to uproot their lives and move to new parts of the country. In fact, according to United Van Lines, an estimated 30 percent of all moves take place between May 1 and August 31.Depending on economic and housing market conditions, some metropolitan attract more migrants than others, and a new report from United indicates that Houston is currently the sixth most popular destination.?”As the nation's largest household goods mover, our annual data reflects overall migration trends, giving us a realistic account of which U.S. cities are gaining and losing population,” said United Van Lines vice president of marketing and communication Carl Walter.A stable job market may be a major factor that is causing a growing number of households to make the move to Houston. The city is a hub for international commerce, especially in the energy industry.An influx of residents to the city could result in increased demand for Houston real estate, which may create more competition among buyers. Normally, this results in home price appreciation, so purchasing property now, before it gets more expensive, could be a smart move.??
