Nationwide Moving Trends


Intro: Considering an out-of-state move? You’re part of a growing trend. The past years have seen a significant rise in Americans relocating across state lines, a trend expected to continue in 2023. Illinois and Chicago, in particular, have witnessed substantial population declines, with finances and work cited as primary reasons. High taxes, soaring housing costs, and increased rents are driving many to seek more affordable options elsewhere, particularly in states like South Carolina, Tennessee, and North Carolina. Remote work opportunities and retirement are also influencing relocation decisions. Learn more about these trends in the accompanying resource from New City Moving.
