I am currently in the process of relocating. I am looking at the Triangle, and Triad in NC and the Dallas or DFW areas. I was wondering if anyone can give some input to what areas would be good for a small electrical contracting shop doing Residential and light commercial/Industrial service work. I am currently a traveling Tech and I'm looking to plant some roots some were. As far as culture that doesn't bother me to much. It's always 6 one way half a dozen another. Judging by the demographics the Dallas area would be better, but I hear the traffic is a nightmare. I am really up for all options. Looking for an affordable area to live in so South Cali is not on the list. oh and a warmer climate than Western PA. I'm 27 and a dude so I need some action. but i'm not a big city guy.

My father is an electrician, does contracted work. He lives in southern VA and is constantly turning down job offers in the triangle area, has no problem finding employment that suits him. He says there is a real demand for licensed electricians and the pay is good. He does a lot especially in the Durham area. There is a lot of new construction for residential and commercial; he was doing residential when he first moved there several years ago but switched to commercial shortly thereafter and that's what he's been doing ever since.

Thanks for the input. The Triangle seems to be booming with retail stores. I am looking to target Middle income females 30 plus for my customers. He can give any advice that would be great. How many guys does he have working for him?
