Charlotte - A Top US City to which Millennials are Flocking


Did you know that Charlotte is among the top cities in the nation to which millennials are flocking?

We believe it because we serve a large number of them and with two of my own (one of whom just purchased a home), we enjoy working with them tremendously as well!


Charlotte NC


Young adults today are less likely to move than they were in previous generations. According to Smart Asset, data from the Census Bureau supports the claim that the mobility rate for young adults is at the lowest rate it has been at in 50 years. However, there are millennials who do move. They offer an incredible economic boon to the cities and states who welcome them and once again, Charlotte has made both SmartAsset’s list (as #1, two previous years) of cities to which millennials are flocking. As well, RISMedia has recently named Charlotte among the top cities in the nation in their recent survey.


The draw of millennials is also a big draw for many companies to relocate their headquarters to Charlotte in hopes of hiring talented employees. Charlotte was also noted as #5 on Forbes’ annual ‘Best Cities for Jobs” list this year (2018).

 We love millennials
