Let’s face it, 2020 has been the year of so much craziness and uncertainty. However, even through a global pandemic, people are still finding ways to live their lives in the best way that they can. One of these ways of course involves moving from state to state. The moving world has by no means slowed down and because of that many of you are probably curious to know which states are pulling more and more people into them.
So today we are going to present the top six states that people are moving to this year.
It should come as no surprise that so many individuals are choosing to settle down in this state. Economically, it is the second biggest state in the US behind California for opportunities. Because of this, it makes absolute sense as to why individuals and families would explore this option.
The state is also fairly large so you will never run out of activities that you can engage in with friends and family.
Another state people are gravitating to is Arizona. It offers the warm climate that many are looking for and is incredibly business-friendly. By 2023, Arizona’s population growth is expected to become the third strongest amongst all of the other states.
And let’s not forget the breathtaking natural wonders you can explore here.
This southern state has been drawing in more and more people for the past two decades. It has become one of the strongest automotive hubs. Suppliers like Honda, Hyundai, Mercedes-Benz, and Toyota are just a few settling here. The reason so many of these major companies are putting down roots in this great state is because business tax is collected at a much lower rate in Alabama than many other states in the nation.
Yet another southern state that is drawing people’s attention is Tennessee. It not only features the Smoky Mountains as just one of the many natural sites people can see, but it also is the perfect place for business professionals. Tennessee is notoriously known as one of the best states to operate business from because of their low costs. It has appeared on Moody’s list as one of the top states to live in because of its business and fiscal health.
Finally a northern state to highlight here on our list. Idaho, otherwise known as the land of the potato has been showing an incredible amount of growth in the past decade. Much like our previous states, they have economically been spearheading the competition. One-third of the US’ potatoes are grown here. But they are not just stopping at potatoes. Other industries of growth that we are seeing coming out of this state are food processing, lumber, mining, and tourism.
And to think that people only thought of this state as a home for potatoes.
- Rhode Island
The final place on our population growth list goes to the itty-bitty Rhode Island. This state has seen lots of people leaving it over the past decade because of job opportunities. And as far as business-persons go, it offers quite a low number as compared to other states. It has scraped by at the bottom of many top ten lists for places to live, but it’s on the up-and-up in terms of economic growth.
Something else to consider from this state is it’s size. It has industry that is rivaling many of the upper-eastern states but because it is much smaller, it still has a small-town feel to it that is endearing.
Which is the best state to live in?
Choosing the best state to move to is absolutely subjective. No matter who you ask, people will always present their top states differently from one another. Due to this, you have to ensure that you are maintaining a well-rounded view of all the states that you research. You have to look at industry, education, food, people, and so much more to come to the conclusion that this is a state you’ll want to settle into. We just hope we could guide you to a few that might make it to the top of your list.
