So many regions have taken a serious hit during the recession. Businesses close, jobs are lost, and residents move away. But in the midst of this troubling economy, a phenomenon has gathered strength: the megaregion. A megaregion is a cluster of metropolitan areas (two or more) that share significant infrastructure, like transportation and environmental systems.
Right here in Bryan-College Station, we’re in the heart of a highly regarded megaregion: the Texas Triangle. Encompassing 60,000 square miles, the Texas Triangle is bordered by Austin, Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio. Approximately 15 million people live in the 66 counties here, equivalent to the combined populations of Connecticut, Delaware, and Massachusetts.
This high-growth region of Texas has a long-standing history in the industries of oil and gas extraction, petroleum and coal products, trucking, warehousing, high-tech, and air transportation—all vital to our economy. As such, the region continues to deliver the goods and services our country needs, keeping the area robust. The unemployment rate is well below the national standard. And these happily employed workers are building and buying homes in the security of an area of the country that has remained relatively recession-proof.
Living in Bryan-College Station gives you easy access to the industries that are thriving. And with a solid economy, investing in a home presents an opportunity to own property that will appreciate—a rarity today—because of the growing demand to live here.
