Florida Top Moving Destination for 15 out of the 50 States

Florida Top Moving Destination for 15 out of the 50 States

We’re not surprised by a new study published by Lending Tree that found 12.4% of their out of state mortgage requests from January through mid-November 2018 were for the state of Florida. In their latest State Migration Study, Lending Tree reviewed more than 2 million new-purchase mortgage requests for primary residences in all 50 states. Not only is Florida the top new destination for 15 out of the 50 states, the study also found that only 8.9% of their Florida applicants were looking to relocate out of state.

The Sunshine State has always been known as a popular destination not just for tourists, but also new residents, particularly retirees. Below is a list of states that list Florida as their #1 move-to destination:

  1. New York: 21.3% want to move; 21.5% of them prefer Florida
