In NC - at least in my little corner - it seems like most of our business is from folks who are relocating here. Many Many years ago a friend of mine told me that one of the first things you notice in a relo market are the license plates... kinda' like that game you use to play when you were a kid going on vacation... how many different states did you see each day?
Well - I've been seeing a TON of out of state plates - so last week I decided to keep a list of the ones I saw right here in the Triangle:
Ohio, Michigan, California, Louisianna, NY, NJ, SC, Georgia, Oregon, Texas, Tennessee, West Virginia, Washington DC, Delaware, Illinois, Iowa, Virginia, Kentucky, Florida (saw 4 different types of Florida tags!), Pennsylvania, Maine, Missouri, Alaska and Arkansas... oh yeah - and I saw a ton of NC too!
Now this might be normal in all metro areas - but I thought it was interesting given the cost of gas! I did not see as many rental cars as I thought I would - maybe someone has some insight?
