The number of moves from California to Texas is up 36% in latest count

The number of California residents headed to Texas grew by more than a third in the latest U.S. migration count.

More than 86,000 Californians picked up and moved to Texas in 2018, according to a report by the Texas Realtors’ association.

Texas had the most total inbound moves on any U.S. state but Florida, with 563,945 new residents in the year.

Florida had slightly more moves, fueled by relocating retiree baby boomers.

“For the sixth year in a row, more than half a million people chose Texas as their new home,” Cindi Bulla, 2020 chairman of Texas Realtors, said in the report. “And why not? In addition to its business-friendly environment with no state income tax and abundance of jobs, land and opportunity, Texas is known for its diverse, friendly spirit and culture.”

California has long been the top spot for moves to Texas.
