Austin, Dallas land high on best-performing cities list
​SANTA CLARA, Calif. (Dallas Morning News) – Two Texas cities took top spots in the Milken Institute's annual survey of the best-performing cities in the U.S.

Austin took third place in the analysis, up six spots from last year. Dallas dropped two spots to fifth.

According to the report, the Texas capital added nearly 5,000 jobs in its professional, scientific, and tech-services sectors last year.

The annual analysis of 200 large metros takes into account job growth, wage and salary growth, and high-tech GDP growth, among other factors.

The rest of the top ten rankings are:
No. 1 Provo-Orem, Utah;
No. 2 San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara, Calif.;
No. 4 San Francisco-Redwood City-South San Francisco, Calif.;
No. 6 Raleigh, N.C.;
No. 7 Orlando-Kissimmee-Sanford, Fla.;
No. 8 Seattle-Bellevue-Everett, Wash.;
No. 9 Fort Collins, Colo.; and
No. 10 Salt Lake City, Utah​

The report cites higher competition for talent among firms and rising housing costs in coastal regions as a factor in rising prosperity for inland cities but notes that those very same inland cities are beginning to catch a glimpse of the hurdles faced on the coasts.

Census estimates: Texas leads nation in pop growth

​​​WASHINGTON (Austin Business Journal) – U.S. Census data released last month shows population growth in the Lone Star State between July 1, 2017, and July 1, 2018, was higher than any other state.

Texas' population ​increased by 379,128 in that span, bringing the state's total population to over 28.7 million.

The data showed that Texas had more births than deaths over the time frame and that the population was buoyed by new residents moving from both inside and outside the United States.

The year-over-year growth is rivaled only by Florida, which saw a population increase of 322,513. California ranked third​, adding 157,696.

Texas ranked eighth for percentage growth in the Census statistics at 1.3 percent. Nevada ranked first with a 2.1 percent spike. The state ​​now has just over three million residents.

Of the ten most populous states in the U.S., only Florida (1.5 percent), and Texas and North Carolina (both 1.1 percent) ranked among the top ten in percentage growth.


More people moved to Texas than any other state between July 1, 2017 and July 1, 2018. But it ranks No. 8 in terms of percentage growth.

DRE Consumer alert regarding wire fraud in real estate transactions

Real estate transactions in today’s world often involve the wiring or electronic funds transfer (EFT) of money to complete a deal. Previous consumer alerts have referenced or covered wire fraud in timeshare transactions and fraud against seniors.

Wire transfers and EFT’s in real estate purchase transactions have become the targets of criminals who interject themselves into a real estate transaction by posing as a party in the transaction. In these cases, the criminal often takes on the identity of a title or escrow company or real estate agent in the transaction and provides legitimate-looking instructions directing the buyer where to wire or transfer funds. These instructions result in the wiring or transfer of funds to the criminal’s bank account, often overseas, and the immediate loss of thousands, or hundreds of thousands, of dollars to the victim.

These are sophisticated, professional-looking attacks on your real estate transactions, and you need to be on the lookout. Cyber criminals may convincingly take on the identity of legitimate parties to your transaction, using authentic-looking logos and personal details in communications, in order to make you or your clients feel comfortable. It is best to be safe in how you respond, and to assume that your transaction is being targeted.
What can you and your clients do to avoid such criminal activity?

1. Whenever possible, use alternatives to wire transfers or EFT’s, such as cashier’s checks, and get a receipt. For smaller transactions, make the payment in person by check or credit card and get a receipt, as these payment sources provide you with proof of payment.

2. Obtain phone numbers and account numbers of real estate agents and escrow-holders at the beginning of the real estate transaction, and use those numbers throughout the transaction.

3. Even if it looks or sounds legitimate, do not act on a change of wiring or EFT instructions that you receive electronically (via e-mail) or via phone call. If your real estate transaction will utilize wiring or EFT of funds, and you (or your client) receive an instruction change about wiring or EFT of funds, call the real estate agent or escrow officer by phone at the known number you obtained at the start of the transaction and verify new instructions before sending money. Better yet, if there is a wiring or EFT instruction change, instead make payment in person using cashier’s check!

4. Do not send personal information (bank account numbers, credit card numbers, social security numbers, and financial details) by personal e-mail or text. Take steps to use a secure, encrypted site to send personal information, or provide this information in person.

If you (or your clients) are victimized, it is critical that you or your client contact your depository institution and the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) immediately in order to have a chance at halting the criminal transfer. File a report with the FBI by calling a local FBI office or reporting online at FBI Internet Crime Complaint Center. Their web site is: bec.ic3.gov
