Florida has a reputation of being the preferred destination of tourists, retirees and a subset of the nation’s weirdest known collectively as “Florida Man” – the source of news stories so strange, you couldn’t possibly make them up.
Yet the even stranger truth is that the country’s most desirable group – young professionals – are moving to the Sunshine State in droves. An analysis of recent moving data reveals that three times as many who had full-service moves last year came to Miami-Ft. Lauderdale for work rather than retirement.
Other ah-ha’s collected from a recent industry study*?
- More than half of those who moved into South Florida last year cited a new job as the reason
- 56% of the heads of households were prime working age — 18 to 54
- Those moving in reported an average salary of $139,000, slightly higher than the income of those moving out.
