There’s an interesting article on KTVB.com this morning about Idaho’s population.
It’s all about who’s coming to Idaho, who’s leaving, where they’re going, and why.
In 2013, the top five sources of in-migration were California, Washington, Oregon, Utah, and Arizona.
That doesn’t surprise me because it mirrors what I see all the time in the Boise real estate market.
The article also says that most Idaho residents who left moved to other western states.
That also correlates to my own real estate experiences.
It’s interesting to note that, for unknown reasons, there was a dip in the in-migration numbers for 2012.
I also found it interesting that we’re losing people in their 20s and gaining people in their 60s.
That reminds me of my 20s when I left Indiana for California (pretty girls and better jobs, in that order). 🙂
And, after doing my time (in a manner of speaking) in California, I too ended up in Idaho.
I’m here to stay.
This is my last best place.
