What are the factors that you consider when thinking about moving to another state? You might start considering your job opportunities, or whether you can transfer with your current job. The location of family and friends might also play into your decision.
But the overwhelming trend over the last few years, according to the Allied Magnet State Report, is to move towards locations with warmer climates and better property rates.
“Magnet states” are states that have seen the greatest net gain in population over the previous year. In other words, more people are moving into that state than out of it. For 2018, these were the top five magnet states as determined by the starting and ending locations of Allied trucks and vans:
- North Carolina
The reason Florida seems to consistently take the top spot for total new moves is that it has everything you might look for in a move: warmer weather, low property taxes, and no income tax requirements. This makes it one of the top locations for people who seek to avoid colder weather.
