Middle-aged and older Americans are packing their bags and making interstate moves in increasing numbers according to new data from the U.S. Census. This data is a "good omen" for the economy since many Americans in this age group no longer owe on their properties and are more free to move.
Several families interviewed in the WSJ's look at interstate migration are taking risks to find new more fulfilling job opportunities. The article noted trends of those leaving the Northeast for the West and South. Believe it or not, states like Massachusetts and New York are "losing people again."
Cross-country moves are arguably the most important in arming migrants with the information they need to make the right investments - in a home, neighborhood, and lifestyle.
