Atlas Van Lines has been tracking moving trends across the United States since 1993. Their 2012 study, which was just released, shows a flurry of migration activity in California, Texas and Florida… All three are, and have remained ‘balanced’ over the past decade … with fairly even inbound and outbound migration patterns.
Washington D.C. showed the highest inbound traffic of any of the Northern States … (and has for much of the past decade).
Rather surprisingly, North Dakota, Alaska, New Mexico are in the same category as Washington D.C (showing increased inbound migration) …
The same is true of North Carolina (although, given the number of Floridians scooping up second homes in North Carolina, that’s not a surprise).
This map shows a snapshot of migration patterns across the U.S. and Canada.
New York and New Jersey rank high as far as outbound migration is concerned … (Wyoming, Nebraska and Ohio … and Canada show high outbound migration as well).
And that continues to benefit South Florida … Despite the somewhat transient nature of much of South Florida (with international corporate relocations coming and going) Florida entices those looking for a reprieve from the cold, and looking for more temperate climates… as well as those wanting second homes and investment property.
Thinking about relocating? We’d love to help make that happen. Look forward to hearing from you! The Restivo Team … Vicki and Alexandra … 305 793-1365 EWM Realtors email@example.com
