Why people moving to South Carolina?

Why people moving to North Carolina? While residents of South Carolina have long known that it’s a great place to live, it seems that more and more people outside the state are getting the memo.  In a recent study conducted in 2013 by some of the country’s top moving companies, states were ranked according to how many people are moving there – or moving away as the case may be.  South Carolina ranks second-highest for the number of people moving to the state, just behind first-ranked Oregon.

The Country’s Most Moved-To States

The study has been taking place annually for nearly 40 years.  Data is collected from customers of moving companies to see how many are moving to and from each state in a particular year.  Oregon had the highest rate of inbound moves, at 61 percent.  South Carolina followed closely behind with 60 percent inbound moves.  North Carolina rated third with 58 percent inbound moves.  Here’s a look at the states that had the highest percentages of inbound moves:

  1. Oregon
  2. South Carolina
  3. North Carolina
  4. District of Columbia
  5. South Dakota
  6. Nevada
  7. Texas
  8. Colorado

The Country’s Most Moved-Away-From States

So which states did not fare as well?  It seems like there are a lot of folks looking to leave the Garden State.  New Jersey had the highest percentage of outbound moves in 2013, with 64 percent.  This is the third time in the last four years that New Jersey has topped the list of those saying goodbye.  Apparently, Chicago is no longer a “sweet home” to many either, as Illinois rated second in outbound moves, with 61 percent.  This was the state’s second year in the second spot for those heading away.  Here are the states with the highest percentages of people moving away in 2013:

  1. New Jersey
  2. Illinois
  3. New York
  4. West Virginia
  5. Connecticut
  6. Utah
  7. Kentucky
  8. Massachusetts
  9. New Mexico

Southeast, West, and Pacific Northwest Becoming Attractive

The areas that saw the biggest gains of those moving to the state include those in the Southeast, West, and Pacific Northwest.  Those states in the Southeast and West, such as South Dakota, Texas, and Colorado, have started to implement business incentives to attract new residents.  In addition they have seen industrial growth in certain sectors and also boast a relatively low cost of living.  Young professionals continue to be attracted to states such as Oregon in the Pacific Northwest because of their emphasis on green living, local arts, and entertainment.

Some States Stay the Same

While gains and losses were felt in some states, there are quite a few places that have seen little change in the number of residents gained or lost.  These include Indiana, Louisiana, Alabama, Iowa, Tennessee, Nebraska and Michigan.  Michigan is actually seeing some relief after a fairly hearty exodus of residents in recent years.  The numbers of those coming and going are finally starting to balance after years of losing many and gaining few new residents.

Moving from Boston to South Carolina is a Great Place to Call Home

If this study proves anything, it is that South Carolina is truly a wonderful place to call home.  With gorgeous scenery, friendly people and outstanding real estate values, South Carolina really delivers.  If you’re looking for a new home in the Greater Columbia, SC, area, ERA Wilder is happy to help.  We love our home state and know that you will too!
