Y’all May All Go To Hell, I’m Going To Texas -Davey Crockett 1836
Looks like Forbes.com is agreeing with the great Texian soldier. As just reported if you want more bang for your buck, head to Texas. San Antonio ranked #1 along with Austin on Forbes.com top cities to ride out the economic storm.
Also recommended were Houston and Dallas. Forbes noted that Texas continues to do well thanks to our Energy markets, Technology and growth in Manufacturing.
San Antonio was among the top 10 cities due to its reputation of where residents get the best value for their dollar, enjoy affordable housing and have promising prospects for job growth. San Antonio also has a huge advantage due to a growing Military community and number of Government jobs.
Homes in San Antonio are also not likely to fall in value due to the slow (non-bubble) growth.
