Considering a move to another state? You’re not alone. There has been an increasing number of Americans relocating across state lines in recent years, a trend expected to continue into 2023. Illinois witnessed a significant decline in population in 2022, particularly in Cook County, where Chicago is located, due to financial difficulties and work-related challenges. High taxes, property costs, and rising rents in Illinois are prompting many to seek more affordable housing options, especially in southern states like South Carolina, Tennessee, and North Carolina. Migration patterns are also influenced by remote work opportunities, with cities such as Tucson and Jacksonville becoming popular destinations. Retirement relocations are also on the rise.
