Las Vegas Number One Moving Location Amid COVID-19, According to Truck Rental Data
LAS VEGAS, NV – According to newly-released truck rental data report, Las Vegas tops the list of places to move to amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, despite the relative shortage of housing options available at the moment.
Penske truck rental has confirmed that Las Vegas is the number one spot to move to, basing that declaration on the sheer number of truck rentals that are one-way; this jibes with the large increase Southern Nevada has been experiencing since 2020, a time when the region’s economy and job market first began to experience a boom, and continues to do well despite the pandemic.
U.S. Census Bureau data also shows Nevada’s population grew by 15 percent in 2020.
A lot of this influx of people is coming due in large part to so-called “tax refugees” from California, with both companies and private residents leaving in droves due to the exorbitant taxes imposed upon them at their former home state. Clearly, the much lower cost of living that Nevada affords them is an attractive alternative, especially when the pandemic has given rise to “virtual commutes” to work, where a computer and an internet connection can allow people to work anytime, anywhere.
Estimates indicate that 38 percent of the homes sold in Las Vegas in 2020 were to former California residents, a whopping number that indicates just how much the city and its surrounding areas are proving to be a huge attraction for those looking to get a fresh start in life and their careers from that nearby area.
