Houston a top ‘Baby Boomtown,’ Forbes says

September 17, 2014
Published by

Houston ranked the No. 8 on Forbes’ “Baby Boomtowns: The U.S. Cities Attracting the Most Families.”

According to Forbes, birth rates may be following the trend of job growth and the revival of the housing market in their rise. The list uses data showing the number of children ages 5 to 14 from 2000 to 2013 to analyze which cities have the strongest growth of families. Forbes said the cities on the list all seem to be suburban, affordable and largely located in the South and Intermountain West. Houston showed a 25.8 percent increase in the number of children from 2000 to 2013.

Other Texas cities to make the list include Austin, which comes in at No. 2 showing a 49.5 percent rise in the number of children ages 5-14 from 2000 to 2013. The Dallas-Fort Worth area ranked No. 6 on the list with a 28.2 percent rise in the number of children.

I just moved into my new Sandcastle home and I think it’s a wonderful place to live. They have been very helpful, particularly Lynette and Steve. From the owner Mike Salomen down, it has been a truly positive experience. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to buy a new home that is built of high quality to consider this home builder.
