This is a very misleading headline. Texas beat Florida by over 30 %.

It is often said that perception reflects reality. I do not know why Florida comes in a distant second to Texas. Perhaps it is a PR problem as Florida has many of the attribute respondents are looking for. Perhaps the state needs to do a better job of communicating our strengths.

In any event, corporate decisions to relocate to the state can bring jobs and effect real estate as well as overall economic growth.
