I know this has been done in the past, but it’s time for an updated (non versus) discussion. Since we’re on the cusp of a new census, over the past 8 years, how have these cities changed (other than population increases)?

Do you feel like the cities have become more urban, diverse, sophisticated, dangerous, safer, international, touristy, cultural, etc?

Also, this isn’t a versus comparison per se, but since 2010, in which ways have the cities gained on each other and in what ways have they lost ground to each other?

For example: Atlanta has been considered to be slightly more urban than Houston or Dallas. In 2019, has Dallas & Houston caught up or has Atlanta pulled away?

In terms of culinary offerings, Houston has lead Dallas and Atlanta for sometime now. Are Atlanta and Dallas gaining or is Houston still far and away superior? This is for cities and suburbs too.

Remember, keep it civil. Let’s discuss...

Speaking only for Dallas, the growth has been tremendous since I have been here (2013). Corporate relocations and influx of people moving in has caused the cost of living to go up. I think among the three, Dallas might have grown the fastest but I sure do hope it slows down.

Hopefully people will provide facts and sources for their claims, instead of just hunches and "feels".

Here you go:
This is just for Jul'16-Jul'17: https://www.census.gov/newsroom/pres...ro-county.html


From 2010 - 2017 according to the Census and some quick Math, DFW grew the fastest, followed by Houston Metro and New York Metro (Link: https://www.census.gov/data/tables/2...cal-areas.html)

We are not discussing population growth here or in this thread at all. We know the census figures.

Now if you were to say that Metro Houston feels as large as DFW or larger despite being down on population, sure. But I’m not here for the population statistics, no offense.

How much has COL gone up in Dallas? How many or how much of the city is selling over $500k. That seems to be the starting figure for homes in nearly all of Atlanta’s gentrified neighborhoods or the ones that are in the middle of it. We’ve hit $1 million in Glenwood Park. That’s honestly unbelievable to me, but Atlanta is on fire ITP.

Fair enough! None taken. Houses starting at 500K in the desirable high growth suburbs like Frisco, Allen, McKinney seem to be more of the norm than they used to for sure.
