Of course, other lists of most popular moving destinations have differed from U-Haul's list. In January, Penske Truck Rental put Atlanta at the top of its list for 2012. Houston was ranked No. 6. U-Haul placed Atlanta all the way down at No. 33 on its list.
Regardless, what can people expect once they arrive in Houston? For one, a booming job market filling up fast with transportation and financial services employment openings. That'll support the local housing market pretty well. According to Trulia, the average listing price in Houston is $322,473, but the median sale price between January 13 and March 13 was a much more affordable $78,000.
