Are We There Yet?

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty - Topsfield, MA 92593-B

I'm always amazed at how mobile our society is. It's also amazed me how many people move to other states seemingly at the drop of a hat. We moved a handful of times when I was a kid but as an adult, we bought our house with the intention of staying there until we left this Earth. Some move for jobs, some for health, some to escape the colder climates, some to be closer to family. Whatever the reason, It's a lot of people. The folks at KCM put together a top 10 list of where people are moving to and moving from. Is your State in the list.

The Top States Americans Moved to Last Year 

The Top States Americans Moved to Last Year [INFOGRAPHIC] | Keeping Current Matters

Some Highlights:

  • Americans are on the move, and the most recent Atlas Van Lines Migration Patterns Survey tracked the 2019 traffic flow from state-to-state.
  • Idaho held on to the top spot of ‘high inbound’ states for the second time since 2017, followed by Washington State.
  • New York was the country’s outbound move leader in 2019, a designation it most recently held in 2014.

If you decide to move into Northeastern Massachusetts give me a call. We'll find you just the right place for you and your family.

Hi Doug Dawes - I have not seen these stats so I appreciate you sharing them with us. Like Grant said, New York does not surprise me.

Good Morning Grant Schneider 

That is not a surprise that New York has such an exodus. I was surprised that West Virginia and South Dakota were on the outbound list

Good Morning Sheila Anderson 

I assume you meant New Jersey when you said we as you are in Massachusetts now. People are fleeing high taxes

I had an older friend who used to tell me the same thing  Michael Jacobs. 3 or more decades ago I was complaining about population growth in our area and they would always retort "People gotta live somewhere, Doug"

Hi Kat Palmiotti 

And it seems, by your post comments, the move to Montana has been a pleasurable one.

That's an interesting point Roy Kelley.

The well off do tend to move to lower tax burden States as well as those retiring.

It was interesting to see all 50 States rankings Will Hamm 

Massachusetts has a 5 or 6 year period where we lost more than came in.

We have friends that up and moved from Massachusetts (lifelong residents) and moved to Waco, TX last year Kathy Streib. Texas is a nice State but has vastly grown in population. Favorable tax rates

Hi Sheri Sperry - MCNE®

Hi Endre Barath, Jr. 

If they counted the illegal immigrants it would look like a movement to into CA. I find it of interest to see where people are moving to since I think it's 2/3's of the population lives within 75 miles of an ocean

Doug Dawes - I moved to Texas in the spring of 1997. It has grown leaps and bounds since I arrived. People are still relocating, mainly from CA. Every day I see license plates from Illinois, Wisconsin, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland.
