Although much has been written about the recent population outflows from New York, Massachusetts and other Northeastern states, many states on the East Coast – including Maine, Vermont, Rhode Island, Delaware, North and South Carolina and Florida – are actually seeing influxes of newcomers. That’s according to a new white paper from analytics firm Placer.ai, East Coast Migration Hubs.
Each state discussed in the white paper, and each of the metropolitan areas attracting relocators within them, offers its own set of benefits, Placer.ai says. However, those willing to make the move often fit a similar profile – younger individuals or families looking for a more favorable housing market, better schools, or more job opportunities.
Read the white paper to find out:
What characterizes inbound migration to different metro areas in the Carolinas?
Which states with older populations are seeing an influx of newcomers from younger areas?
Where are people gravitating in search of a lower cost of living, and where are they bucking the trend and moving from lower-income areas to more affluent ones?
