Further confirmation that Austin is a great place to live during these uncertain economic times is the recent release of the 2009 Best Big Cities for Jobs list (Forbes.com). Austin ranks #1 in the big cities list and #6 overall. Texas fares extremely well in the rankings holding the #1 spot overall (Odessa, TX) as well as the top 5 spots for big cities! Austin, Houston, San Antonio, Ft. Worth, and Dallas are the top 5 Best Big Cities for Jobs. Forbes.com published this information along with NewGeography.com, though the NewGeography.com site (2009 Best Cities for Job Growth) provides a bit more detailed information about the methodology. We are convinced Austin is a great place to call home. We hope you will call Great Austin Properties at 512.600.1800 if you agree - we would love to help you with your Austin Real Estate needs!
