Which state is the fastest growing in the country?

While states like Florida, Georgia, and Idaho have seen impressive growth in the last few years, one state has outpaced all of them.

Texas is home to nine of the nation’s 15 fastest growing cities and it’s showing no signs of stopping. The fastest growing city in Texas was Georgetown with a 14.4% increase in total population. In 2000, Georgetown, TX only had 28,339 residents. As of 2022, its population is now over 80,000 with more growth projected.

In addition to Georgetown, Rockwall, TX crossed the 50,000 population level, and Conroe, TX and New Braunfels, TX each went over the 100,000 population mark.

Have you considered a barndominium?

Would you like more of a country lifestyle, but don’t want to give up any amenities that a suburban home or urban condo might have? Enter the ‘Barndominium’. First appearing in the residential real estate market a few years ago, barndominiums have moved more towards the luxury market recently with unique use of the large space that these types of floorplans provide. From resort-style homes to private airstrips, the sky is literally the limit with this type of home.

One of the most unique barndominiums on the market is a 110-acre, six-bedroom home in Pooleville, TX. At 8001 Lone Star Road, this home comes with an in-ground pool, a 2,400 sq. ft. shop, two full kitchens, and six bedrooms.
