I’ve never read so many good articles and rankings on cities by growth, affordability, and desirability. Especially during a time when the real estate market is crazy. This is the last one I’ll bring you for now.
This study rates the market on three measures, population and housing, workforce and earnings, and business growth. So, you can decide which of these are most important to you or your kids.
The only surprise in the top five is Provo, Utah.
Austin is on top with its hip culture and restaurant scene.
Then Provo comes in after Austin, with its dry, sunny weather. It’s less than an hour from Salt Lake City.
Raleigh’s third with its research triangle and universities, followed by Charleston with its booming restaurant scene and massive tourism.
Nashville, the country music capital, falls in right behind Charleston with strong tourism. Both of which are always bachelorette destinations, making them busy nearly year-round with their mild climates.
We had our last Irrational Economic Summit in Nashville. This year it’s in Austin. Maybe in the future we’ll host it in Charleston.
Out of the top 12, five of the boomtowns are in Texas. None of them are in Florida. And 11 of those 12 are located in the sunbelt.
No surprise there!
Out of the top 36 boomtowns, 28 are tucked along the sunbelt.
The top boomtowns for population and housing are Austin (100), Raleigh (84.1), Provo (79.9), Houston (77.7), and Charleston (66.9).
Those that lead in workforce and earnings are Austin (70.3), McAllen in Texas (a southern border town) (62.2), and Charleston (66.9).
And the top areas for business growth are Provo (95.1), Austin (93.0), Nashville (72.9), Charleston (71.1), and Raleigh (70.8).
The boomtowns that stand out most to me Austin, Charleston and Raleigh. These are some of the best places to consider moving to, especially for your kids.
But the best strategy is to rent for a few years to make sure you love it, and to look for better buy opportunities when the next real estate decline sets in.
