Considering a move to another state? You’re not alone in this growing trend. Over recent years, more Americans have been relocating across state lines, and this trend is expected to continue into 2023. In 2022, Illinois experienced a significant decline in population, particularly in Cook County, home to Chicago. This decline is attributed to financial strains and work-related challenges. High taxes, property costs, and increasing rents in Illinois are prompting many to seek more affordable housing options, particularly in southern states like South Carolina, Tennessee, and North Carolina. Remote work opportunities are also driving migration trends, with cities such as Tucson and Jacksonville becoming popular destinations. Additionally, retirement relocations are on the rise.
