Migration to Virginia slowing, but DC remains popular

Moving giant Atlas Van Lines keeps track of which states have people moving in and which have people moving out. It found that Virginia, which had been an “inbound” state in 2011 became “balanced” in 2012. (That is, about the same number of households moved in as moved out.)

This is despite the fact that mid-Atlantic coastal states like ours are, along with the Southwest, the most popular place to move. Well, maybe the other mid-Atlantic coastal states are; North and South Carolina were both in the top five.

Meanwhile, both Atlas and United Van Lines found Washington, D.C., as the most popular destination — in Atlas’s case for the seventh consecutive year — with 63 percent of moves being inbound.
