South Carolina ranks third as top destination to relocate

Published Jan. 3, 2012

In 2011, South Carolina ranked third as the leading destination state for family relocations, according to the 44th annual Magnet States Report released by Allied Van Lines.

The Palmetto State had a net relocation gain — calculated by inbound moves minus outbound moves performed by Allied Van Lines — of 489 families for 2011. It trailed Texas and Florida, according to the report, which tracks U.S. migration patterns.

Texas, though, appears to be losing momentum, the report said. In 2009, Texas attracted nearly 2,000 families; in 2010, that number dropped to 1,640. Last year, the margin narrowed again as it reported a total net gain of 1,556.

Florida moved higher in the rankings with a net gain of 809 moves, capturing second place from last year’s title holder, Colorado.

Colorado trailed South Carolina with 462 relocations, followed by Oregon with 435 relocations.
