Arizona has always been a popular destination for people moving in from other states. How many of you reading this are actually Tucson or even Arizona natives? Our climate, our beautiful Sonoran Desert, the growing tech economy, and lower costs of living for retirees are just a few of the reasons for people to relocate and buy homes here.
Interestingly enough, the top five states in 2016 were South Dakota, Vermont, Oregon, Washington and the District of Columbia. All fine places...and I lived in the DC area for many years, but pack sweaters if you are moving to most of those. Arizona came in 10th...right behind Nevada.
