    South Carolina: Among The Top States Americans Are Moving To

    In 2014, United Van Lines’ Annual National Movers Study ranked South Carolina #2 in the United States for inbound residents. Last year, South Carolina remains in the second spot for most popular moving destinations of 2015 with 63 percent of inbound moves. United Van Line’s annual National Movers Study looked at customers’ migration patterns state-to-state during the course of the past year. It appears South Carolina is among the top favorite destinations.

    63 percent of inbound moves is a lot of people and with South Carolina’s warm weather, green spaces, housing affordability, and lower taxes it is absolutely no wonder why. We have it all here!

    South Carolina’s major cities like Columbia, Charleston, and Greenville boast a myriad of entertainment, arts, recreational and outdoor experiences, and delicious culinary wonders, but still offer residents the opportunity to enjoy the sweet, slow pace of southern life.  The cost of living is also remarkably lower compared to national average.
