New Penske Report Indicates Las Vegas Is Second-Highest Ranked Location in U.S. to Move To
LAS VEGAS, NV – A new report released by a national moving company indicates that Las Vegas, Nevada currently ranks as the second-highest location in the United States that both people and businesses are moving to.
In its 13th annual top moving destinations list, Penske Truck Rental noted that – for the second year running – Las Vegas was the second most popular city for customers to rent its moving trucks for a one-way trip in 2022, indicating that these travelers were intending to stay at their destination permanently.
Houston, Texas topped the company’s list as the country’s most popular one-way moving destination for the second year in a row. Third, fourth, and fifth places were held by Orlando, Phoenix, and Atlanta – the city’s first appearance on the list since 2020 – respectively.
In 2022, approximately 27.3 million people moved in the United States according to the U.S. Census Bureau, representing a 4 percent year-over-year increase.
In recent years, Las Vegas has been experiencing a great influx of new residents from neighboring states such as California who are looking to escape high taxes and exorbitant cost of living increases; a new report also indicates that more and more individuals from a wholly unexpected state – Florida – are also making the decision to relocate to Southern Nevada as well, for a variety of reasons.
One of the reasons that Southern Nevada is growing in popularity with Floridians, reports say, is that it offers the same business-friendly environment as their native state – as well as similar low cost of living benefits – but without the regular threat of natural disasters such as hurricanes and tropical storms threatening both property and well-being.
The fact that Las Vegas has slightly cheaper real estate prices overall when compared to Florida – allowing new transplants to get more bang for their buck – is another strong motivating factor, according to experts.
