More than 36 million Americans relocated in 2012 according to the U.S. Census Bureau, an increase from 2011's record low mover rate of 35.1 million. And while many of those stayed within the same county, plenty of them packed up and moved to a different state.
Data from Penske Truck Rental, a global transportation services provider, showed that a warmer climate was the biggest reason given in response to why people were moving. Check out the top ten cities Americans moved to in 2012:
1. Atlanta, GA 2. Dallas-Fort Worth, TX 3. Phoenix, AZ 4. Orlando, FL 5. Chicago, IL 6. Houston, TX 7. Denver, CO 8. Seattle, WA 9. Charlotte, NC 10. Sarasota, FL
In additional to it's mild and warm climate, Charlotte likely is attractive to relocating families because of it's good schools, relatively low income and sales taxes, access to jobs for educated and skilled workers, and its affordable housing. On average, homes sell for under $200,000 in the Charlotte Metro Area.
