Americans are Moving Again
New U.S. Census data from 2012 shows that Americans are moving again.
Domestic migration, with people moving across counties, was at a steady high rate of 16.9 million people, but the long-distance interstate moves accounted for 7 million of those, which is up nearly 5% from two years earlier.
And a lot of those people are heading to Florida.
Things had slowed down during the recession, but now, the Census data shows that some northern cities, like Baltimore and New York are seeing a decrease in residents, whereas area like Miami-Fort Lauderdale and Las Vegas are seeing significant increases.
In fact, home-building rates in Miami-Fort Lauderdale rose 67% last years, which was an 87% increase over 2011.
But it’s not just a great time for new home builders. It’s a great time to sell your home all over Florida, especially because the inventory is still so low in many places.
