There is a national immigration taking place in the US. This is the 5th migration. The fourth was after WWII with people moving out of the cities and into the suburbs.
Now people are moving out of the cities and suburbs and into rural counties just outside the commuting distance of metro areas.
This is a 60 year trend upward, now 20 years into it. 40 years of good prospects left. These counties are know as “penturbian” counties, or “rural regions of growth and opportunity offering reasonable prices, low crime, natural beauty and well-planned growth.”
I learned of this when I moved to Colorado from Hawaii after trying to figure where to move and buy real estate. I located research by Dr. Jack Lessinger of Bow, WA. Hois latest report is “Boom Counties”.
However, if you plan on flipping properties, you can live anywhere (but avoid depressed economies). There are always sellers mwho need their problems solved…even in hot markets.
Move somewhere nice, which satisfies with your personal values.
