On January 2nd, United Van Lines released its 37th Annual Migration Study, which tracks where their customers moved over the course of 1 year. The study revealed Oregon as the new number 1 state for inbound moves knocking Washington D.C. out of first place. After a 5 year reign, the capital fell to 4th place and tied with South Dakota.
Great news for North Carolina – our state came in at 3rd place for inbound moves. Home sellers should take note: for months, homes sold have outpaced homes listed and this is one reason why! If you’ve been thinking of selling, contact a Sea Coast agent to learn about your options.
As for the other side of the study, after over a decade of being on the outbound list, Michigan is no longer seeing a large movement of people leaving the state. It’s nowhere on the outbound list. 2013 saw New Jersey with the highest number of outbound moves. The Northeast, in general, saw the most outbound moves in the United States.
