Best Cities for Relocation. Nice things always talks for themselves, so is a nice city or state. The relocation trend in terms of moving can give you a clear sign of the nature of a city, such as if in the past few years the city has experienced a higher inflow of immigrants then definitely there must be something great about that place. Before settling on relocating to any town, it is worth knowing the potential of the place, how attractive is the state… does it have all the necessary amenities, water, power and favorable temperatures, etc. These variables are the first indicators of the worth of a city or a state! Currently US relocation’s are assuming a certain trend which is founded on some factors, evaluating this states will aid you to make a decision on whether to move to city A or B. In establishing those “hot” states there are some of the determinants which come into play.
Precisely history keeps repeating itself and a good place will be facing a higher demand for reflected in increasing relocation into these towns or cities. Some people would argue that the cost of living is the main determinant of attraction towards a certain city, but I am certainly not convinced because DC Metro which is very expensive is highly populated what can we say about this? Is it magic? What happened to the law of demand and supply? Does the theory of price/ cost being inversely proportional to demand vanish in the mid of Dc Metro? – Here is an analysis of some states/ cities which are facing higher immigrants in the past few years!
The red states are leading in the list of places which are facing a higher influx of people from all corners of US. A report indicates that, the sun belt cities led by Phoenix are really facing a high number of immigrants, although an analysis from 2006 to present shows that the numbers of relocation’s in US are decreasing some of these cities are far from facing the impact… numbers are doubling each night. Especially, Americans who are seeking opportunities or looking for better life are moving to these places either to actualize or give their children an opportunity to go up the ladder if not own the ladder.
Although recession altered the ranking a bit, still Texas has been among the greatest “moving to” winners. Dallas comes first, being closely followed by Austin Texas in the third place, Houston ranks the fifth place and San Antonio comes eighth. Unlike for the period 2000-2009 where cities like Las Vegas faced a larger number of immigrants, now such towns are facing a stiff competition from other cities which have become very famous over the past years. Also trending better in terms of immigrants by 2011 were Miami coming in the second place, Washington D.C sixth, Seattle coming ninth etc. The list entails the following cities facing an overwhelming numbers of immigrants,
• Boulder, Colorado
• Burlington, Vermont
• Washington D.C
• North Dakota
• San Antonio
This analysis is imperative before making any move to any city, for instance economic changes in various cities can make them face a certain trend i.e. increasing or decreasing trend in immigrants. Now the question which is lingering in most people’s minds is, why are some of these cities gaining in terms of population due to immigrants while others are desperately loosing, what may be the causes?

Some of these states have more industries than other places, making getting a job easier than other places with few or no industries at all.
3. Business climate
Business is one of the hubs of economic stability and improved performance, an area with favorable health business environments ranks preferentially higher demand for relocation than other areas. Business environment is measured by the numbers of consumers of the business products, availability of raw materials, accessibility of the area etc. The above cities are better in terms of idea generation, implementation and long run performance, a fact which is reflected in their increased numbers of immigrants into the areas.
4. Culture and orientation
Culture is part and parcel of us, the culture of a certain state will determine whether some people will move into that area or not, depending on the favor ability of the culture of the area.

Nevertheless, the cost of living will determine the trends in movements more especially to those people who are in the lower levels of satisfaction!
