These are exciting times to live in the Collin County, Texas area! For one thing, the Dallas/Fort Worth area is becoming increasingly popular with people from all over the world. This is good news for business owners as well as for job seekers.

The international visitor to Dallas/Fort Worth spends an average of $1,050 here, according to the Dallas Convention and Visitors Bureau. That’s a lot of money when you multiply it by the number of visitors from across the world. They have significantly increased from 2011 to 2014. The United Kingdom had the smallest increase at 11.33%. That’s a drop in the bucket compared to the 94.86% increase of visitors from China! Other countries have increased their visits to our area by anywhere from 11.61 % from Germany to a whopping 61% from Brazil.

With prosperity comes growth in many different areas. All of those visitors from around the world need places to stay. They also need places to eat and shop. Who would travel all the way from China without picking up some souvenirs, right? We have the advantage of being part of, not only the greatest nation in the world, with lots of souvenir potential, but also the wonderful wildWest!

Besides the increase in international travel to our area, Texas has increased its exports over the past 10 years from $117.4 billion to $189 billion. This includes oil, of course, but that’s not all. We export everything from cotton, to animal products, to electronics. Business is positively booming!

The growth in business brings growth in population. People come here for great job opportunities. This brings a commensurate increase in the need for housing. Real Estate in this area is in real demand. In fact, some think there may be a housing shortage for a while until the building industry catches up.
