The 2008 city to city migration numbers are not as strong as 2007 but people are still relocating and the Charlotte Metro (includes Fort Mill SC) area is ranked 3rd according to a Forbes article.
Local Tega Cay friends recently pointed out a story to us that Lauren Sherman at Forbes published an article at the end of March titled “Ten Cities Where Americans Are Relocating”. The Forbes article ranked Charlotte 3rd most popular. I reported in March Charlotte Ranked the 7th fastest growing cities. So whats the difference?
We both used the US Census Bureau’s March 19th 2008 data. Forbes compared the 2008 population estimates to the previous year’s data to see which areas had grown the most, percentage-wise and so did I. The difference is the Forbes article focused on cities over a million in population.
When you focus on cities over the million in populations the top ten 2008 fastest growing cities are:
- Raleigh-Cary, NC
- Austin-Round Rock, TX
- Charlotte-Gastonia-Concord, NC-SC
- Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale, AZ
- Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington, TX
- San Antonio, TX
- Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown, TX
- New Orleans-Metairie-Kenner, LA
- Atlanta-Sandy Springs-Marietta, GA
- Denver-Aurora, CO
The Charlotte metro are includes Fort Mill, Tega Cay, Lake Wylie, Rock Hill, all of York County SC. Of course I am somewhat biased but if you’re looking for some of the best areas to live within the Charlotte metro area I would recommend the Fort Mill, Tega Cay, Lake Wylie area.
If you are considering to relocate to the Charlotte area, contact Carmen for more information about the Fort Mill SC area which is just a few miles south of Charlotte.Offered by Carmen S Miller Century 21 First Choice Fort Mill, SC 803.322.3479 firstname.lastname@example.org
