The Valley of the Sun - Where Americans are Moving This Year!

Moving is exhausting, time-consuming and tedious, and can be frustrating, especially if you’re moving to a new city or state. But once you’re moved in, living in the city you’ve always wanted to call home makes it worth the hassle.

10 US cities were chosen as the most popular moving destinations from January to March of 2012 based on inbound shipments, according to the American Moving and Storage Association.

While Metro Phoenix was hit hard by the housing crash and is only beginning to rebound. Rental rates and home values have followed a similar trend, falling hard from 2008 to 2010, but they’ve slowly started to climb in the last two years. Of course, that means if you’re one of those moving to Arizona, there’s plenty of affordable real estate to choose from, whether you’re buying or renting.

The Valley is a great place to move if you have experience in the tourism or manufacturing industries. The trade, transportation and utilities sectors employ much of the population, but education, health and business services are also popular industries.
