Penske Truck Rental’s current list of top moving destinations – as of today! 

1. Atlanta
2. Phoenix
3. Orlando, Fla.
4. Dallas/Fort Worth
5. Chicago
6. Houston
7. Denver
8. Seattle
9. Sarasota, Fla.
10. Charlotte, N.C.

The Atlanta market is again the destination of choice. There are no new market entries.

No region moved up or down more than two positions, with Dallas/Fort Worth dropping two places, from second to fourth. Half the list (Atlanta, Chicago, Houston, Sarasota, Fla., and Charlotte, N.C.,) remained in identical positions.

“As this list indicates, U.S. residents continue migrating primarily toward warm weather areas,” noted Don Mikes, Penske’s vice president of rental. “The list is compiled through online consumer truck rental reservations and through our call centers.”

Fewer young adults hold jobs than ever before

The age related income gap will have lasting impact on real estate markets: less ability to pay rents, less location selectivity, lower capital formation. Less location selectivity will impact the remote suburbs more than central access locations. The age related income gap will likely bring about a greater demand to be “parked” in higher education, and consequently a greater lifetime debt burden detracting from the ability to go into housing debt. Delay in household formation and delay in reproduction will have an echo effect; if there is not a delay the financial impact can fall on the grandparents of the young offspring. All representative of the widening gap between modal income.


Is it society that is making real estate and land economics more complex; or, is the perceived complexity the result of an increase in information?
