Updater Releases Top 15 Moving Destinations of 2017

Hot off the presses, Updater officially released its annual moving destinations report ranking the top 15 moving destinations in the U.S. for 2017. There’s some juicy findings, with Washington, D.C. topping the list as the most moved-to destination.

These aggregated moving trends were determined by programmatically analyzing 1,000,0000 anonymous household moves, that took place between Jan. 1 and Oct. 1, 2017.

Across the country, we’re seeing a gradual but steady migration away from rural areas and smaller cities to large metropolitan locations, as well as rapidly growing medium-sized cities in warmer weather climates.

Updater’s unique insight into America’s migration patterns shows that people are flocking to large metropolitan areas, with D.C., Dallas, and L.A. ranking as the top three moving destinations.

“This list represents one of the largest sample sizes of Americans who are actually moving, as opposed to real estate listing or housing trends,” said Updater Founder and CEO, David Greenberg.

Examining one million moves reveals a lot about the evolution of our cities.“The list reveals that large cities are very attractive destinations for both consumers that move in and the corporations that attract them,” Greenberg continued.
