National Mobility Trends in Relocation

Considering relocating out of state? You’re part of a growing trend. In recent years, more Americans have been moving across state lines, a trend expected to continue in 2023. Illinois saw a significant population drop in 2022, particularly in Cook County, where Chicago is located, due to financial strains and work-related issues. High taxes, property costs, and rising rents in Illinois are prompting many to seek more affordable housing options, especially in southern states like South Carolina, Tennessee, and North Carolina. Remote work opportunities are also driving migration trends, with cities such as Tucson and Jacksonville becoming popular destinations. Retirement relocations are also increasing.
