AUSTIN'S GOT IT GOING ON!

Forbes magazine names it at the top of the "metro areas with the most economic momentum going into 2014."

Hipsters that might end up in Silicon Valley are heading here because of low taxes, light regulation and "reasonable" housing prices.  Certainly reasonable when compared to Silicon Valley!

Several Texas cities make the list - San Antonio, Houston, Dallas. Making it the place to be in terms of "job creation, wealth formation and overall growth."  Perhaps more surprising are some other cities on this list; Salt Lake City, New Orleans, Pittsburgh & Oklahoma City.  

Certainly housing is part of this equation.  The cities that top this list work hard to make sure there's room for growing families, in the urban centers or suburbs.  

It's a really interesting read & worth your time.  Check out the link below.
