There are nearly as many reasons for relocating as there are people doing it. Whether for business or personal reasons, there do seem to be some definite trends taking shape over the past year or so. We do moving and storage in West Palm Beach, and frankly couldn’t imagine being anywhere else, but that’s just us. Maybe you have other plans. Here is a list of five hot cities where US residents are moving in 2016 and 2017. Is one of these cities on your list?
Tampa is tops when it comes to moving destinations. Whether it’s the amazing weather, the lure of the low 4.4% unemployment rate or the fact that Florida has no state income tax, the reasons to move to Tampa abound! With an affordable median home price of around $230K, it’s no wonder why its popularity is on the rise. And did we mention the beautiful weather?
With a growing technology industry and an unemployment rate hovering around 5.1%, lots of young professionals are heading for Raleigh, North Carolina. With nearby universities, many recent college grads are deciding to stay on for the job opportunities, and the quality of life can’t be beat. A very reasonable median home price of $257,500 may also be hard to resist!
If you have a passion for public works of art, craft beer and street fairs, Grand Rapids is the place for you. This city has humble roots in furniture production, but now boasts a vibrant college scene, diverse community, outdoor recreation and a very active job market – especially in the health care industry. Friendly residents, an unemployment rate of an astounding 3.2% and median home prices in the mid $150K range are additional perks.
Between its mountains, walking trails waterfalls and rock formations, Colorado Springs has won the jackpot in natural beauty. A true sense of community awaits you in a place known for healthy lifestyles, excellent air quality and commitment to sustainability. Enjoy all four seasons in this slice of heaven in the mountains!
Although there’s been a lot of buzz about Austin in recent years, San Antonio deserves another look.
