Where Are Americans Moving?
Throughout the years, it has been fascinating to study the migration habits of the American population. Even though there has been a long decline in the percentage of U.S. residents who move each year, as found by the U.S. Census Bureau, some states are still seeing a heavy or moderate inbound of residents. And, lucky for us, Texas, and the South, happens to be one of those regions seeing a moderate to heavy influx of residents.
According to the United Van Lines’ 2015 Movers Study, 2015 saw an inbound of residents to the South and Northwest and a high outbound of residents from the Northeast.
Mainly making up the South and Northwest, these are 2015’s inbound states:
Mainly making up the Northeast, these are 2015’s outbound states:
What could be the reason for these trends: inbound to the South and outbound of the Northeast? According to United Van Lines’ study, the top reason for moving to the South included company transfer/new job, retirement and proximity to family. However, these may not be the only reasons this is happening. I have a few thoughts as to why the South continues to see an influx of residents:
Based on the information above it appears that Texas, and the South, are seeing and will continue to see an influx of residents. The cost of living is good, the weather is warmer, and it looks like there is plenty of job opportunity! Are you or someone you know interested in moving to our area? I am always here to help!
