After getting hit hard by the housing market crash, it turns out that Las Vegas is the No. 1 on-the-move metro area among the 100 biggest metro areas in the U.S., according to a LawnStarter study of data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2014 American Community Survey.
In Las Vegas, the percentage of owners or renters who had moved into their homes in 2010 or later was 55.7% in 2014. Also, 20.8% of residents had moved to Las Vegas within the past year in 2014.
“By 2014, we had seen an influx of residents, and that has remained true for the past few years and continued to increase,” Alexis Bradley, a Realtor in Las Vegas, says.
