Nobody's Leaving California: US Migration Statistics

United Van Lines, the largest household moving company in the United States, released its 2006 annual report on US Migration earlier this month.

North Carolina and Oregon were the top two states for inbound traffic, United Van Lines reported. South Carolina, Nevada and Idaho rounded out the top five.

California saw it's lowest exodus of residents in four years. Considering the 2005 "peak" in the real estate market and the subsequent moderation of sales since, it seems that people are staying put. The study should soothe those sellers and buyers who have fears about home appreciation and re-sale value.
