14 Jan North Carolina Ranked #3 in Top Moving Destinations of 2013
North Carolina is a very special place to live and offers something for everyone. When you move to North Carolina, expect southern hospitality at its best! That means helpful people, reasonable cost-of-living, and your choice of where to live- cities, suburbs, beachfront property, the mountains or on the magnificent coast. You can’t go wrong!
North Carolina has a low cost of living and high quality of life – and now there is proof! Each year, United Van Lines – a national moving and Storage Company – keeps track of where its customers are moving from and to during the course of the year, and publishes the results (results based on the percentage of movers who were moving to a particular state – “inbound moves”) in an annual migration study.
The 37th Annual Migration Study found that while Oregon is the top moving destination of 2013, with 61% of moves to the state inbound ones, North and South Carolinas each made the top three. South Carolina took second place at 60% and North Carolina took third place at 58%. North Carolina has been on the high inbound list every year since 1993, and South Carolina has held a spot on the top inbound list 16 out of the past 18 years.
Carl Walter, vice president of United Van Lines said, “As the nation’s largest household goods mover, United’s shipment data illustrates national state-to-state migration trends. We’ve been tracking the number of inbound and outbound domestic moves for nearly 40 years, and through our study are able to identify the states that are attracting or losing residents.”
