Moving to Phoenix? Well, you're not alone. Data released last week from U-Haul International Inc. ranked Phoenix as the 14th most popular moving destination in 2010. This is from their annual U-Haul National Migration Trend Report, "The 2010 Top 50 U.S. Destination Cities," which showed Phoenix holding the No. 14 spot from 2009. Tucson ranked 28th, up one place from 2009.
The full list is included below. The data was compiled from more than 1.4 million U-Haul truck transactions last year, all for destinations representing travel of more than 50 miles and considers every city in the country, regardless of size.
Why are so many people moving to Phoenix? Simple. It's a great place to live. We have solid companies that are hiring (in fact, U-Haul International is headquartered here), our economy is competitive, and our lifestyle is a winner: sunny days year-round as well as so much to do including golf, swimming and hiking.
If you are considering moving to Phoenix, contact me. I'm happy to help you find a home in the area.
Many people are moving to Phoenix because of the great weather and many golf courses.
