North Carolina ranks among the top ten in the nation when it comes to a key state where millennials are moving to.
According to an analysis by Smart Asset, more than 9,000 people between the ages of 20 to 34 moved to the state in 2016.
That’s minus the number who moved away.
The numbers were calculated using U.S. Census data with researchers tracking migration and emigration numbers to come up with their results.
Earlier this week, Mayor P.J. Connelly highlighted just how well Greenville’s real estate market is doing in his first State of the City address.
“We’ve seen real estate transactions skyrocket from 3.7 million dollars in 2015 to more than 25 million dollars last year,” said Connelly.
Some of those new home buyers anticipated to be millennials.
According to the Pew Research Center, there are nearly 80 million millennials across the nation.
They’re the largest living generation by population size.
By next year, they’re expected to surpass the number of baby boomers.
It’s what makes them such a coveted group.
