Gen Z Chooses Texas Top Destination Defying Traditional Hotspots

Texas has emerged as the top destination for Gen Z individuals, according to a recent analysis by housing platform Zillow.

FOX 5 Atlanta reports that Texas has emerged as the top destination for Gen Z individuals, according to a recent analysis by the housing platform Zillow. The Lone Star State has seen a remarkable surge in Gen Z residents, outpacing perennially popular choices like California and New York in the post-COVID landscape.

“Texas offers job opportunities and relative affordability. Many parts of Texas have been successful [in] building a lot of new housing to better accommodate its new residents,” said Berchick about the state’s proactive approach to housing development.

Interestingly, California, while still attracting young movers, witnessed the highest outbound migration among all out-of-state movers. Zillow’s population scientist pointed out that California’s dynamic urban areas attract people of all generations, contributing to the state’s ongoing population shifts.

Berchick delved into the implications of Gen Z’s choice to move to more expensive states, suggesting it could be due to higher paying job opportunities or a willingness among younger workers to be flexible in their living arrangements. He noted that they might be more open to living with roommates in smaller places, or farther away from city centers, at the start of their careers.

States with the lowest Gen Z net migration included Michigan, Maryland, and Idaho, with Michigan being the only state exhibiting a negative trend where more Gen Zers left than moved in. Berchick emphasized that as movers age their preferences might shift toward states where they can afford to settle down, start a family, and eventually retire.
