In a recent blog by Keeping Current Matters, we discovered there is an unmistakable trend of people moving out of states like New Jersey, Illinois and New York. Likely relocating to areas with lower taxes and milder winter climates, although that’s not why all Americans are moving. Take a look at the Top 10 lists here showing what states people are flocking too and from. South Carolina made 5th of the list for highest rate of inbound relocation. See the full KCM blog here.
It’s a very common thread that people who move to the Hilton Head / Bluffton area did so after spending years vacationing on the Island. The Hilton Head Island Chamber of Commerce 2016 tourism numbers, as reported in the March 2017 Chamber Business Monthly, show another record-setting year with 2.677 Million visitors. That information paired with the rapid commercial and housing development in Bluffton make it fair to assume that we’ll continue to see a steady population growth.
