A website dedicated to tracking relocations has deemed New Jersey the bye-bye state.
According to Movers.com usage data, the states that had the most moving traffic in the second quarter this year were California, Florida, Texas, New York and New Jersey.
Of those states, more people moved out of New Jersey than moved in. And many moved to Maryland as the Base Realignment and Closure began to take root in at Aberdeen Proving Ground, with hundreds of employees from Ft. Monmouth in New Jersey receiving transfers to Harford County. Thousands more are expected to relocate to Maryland in the coming year.
Movers.com also noted that Florida and Texas also had high moving turnovers, or a change in population because of moving. Chicago, Phoenix, Orlando and Los Angeles saw the highest rates of moving traffic between April 1 and June 30.
The website, which provides free moving quotes from a variety of companies across the U.S., reported that overall, one- and two-bedroom moves made up more than half of all home moves, excluding auto and international moves.
