U-Hauls Top 10 US Destinations For 2013

I always like lists that come from companies that are in the trenches. The U-Haul report is especially interesting because it is counting those that are migrating without hiring the big moving companies. This captures the economic moves for families that are leaving not because of a corporate relocation or high dollar retirement, but those that are looking to find a better start.

 

Recent graduates, the unemployed, or those looking for a new start typically will load up the U-Haul and start again. From a real estate perspective, it may capture the foreclosed upon. From an economic perspective, it shows where people are to find a better economic situation.

Some cities that have typically done well in attracting relocations, such as Atlanta, have fallen drastically to the 33rd position. Meanwhile Houston has held the top position for 4 years straight as people are moving to the Texas city. My guess is that opportunity in Houston has not let up for the middle class.
