Californians On The Move!
In what's been called the California Exodus, recent studies show more Californians are relocating to other states that are moving here from elsewhere in the country. It's been this way for 30 years.

These were the top destinations for Californians leaving:

  • Texas (82,235 people in Texas had moved from California in the last year)

  • Arizona (59,713)

  • Nevada (47,322)

  • Washington (46,791)

  • Oregon (37,927)

Eric McGhee, a senior fellow with the Public Policy Institute of California, states that Californians were more likely to be educated, employed, and earn higher incomes than those moving away.

That suggests that high expenses are to blame for the departures, though not high taxes, as some claim, he said. California taxes wealthier people at much higher levels than those with lower incomes, he said. 

To put some perspective on what homeownership costs in other states, in Texas, the median home price is $329,000 which is less than half of what it is in California, according to Redfin. Some states have no sales tax, property tax, or lower corporate tax. Which is enticing to some Californians.

This made me curious about what it would look like if you moved to another state. Let's take a look at what you can buy in those states.
