South Carolina (61%), North Carolina (61%), and Alabama (58%), all in the Southeastern United States, saw significant rates of relocation.

Stoll, “key reasons including retirement, desire to live closer to family, and lifestyle changes caused by the pandemic together with current housing costs pushed shifting trends in 2022.” According to United Van Lines’ research, more and more people are leaving large cities for smaller ones across the United States.

The most common reason given for leaving those states is to take advantage of a new employment opportunity or a move within an organization.
