In terms of cities seeing the most growth, Sarasota, Florida ranked first, followed by Dallas, Texas; Nashville, Tennessee; and Tampa Bay, Florida.

"Americans are overwhelmingly choosing to move to the states in the Southeast, including Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee. It’s likely more than just that sweet southern charm and tea that’s attracting them, too. These states have historically lower costs of living, less volatile seasonal weather changes, and more space and access to nature,' PODS Blog states.

No place in New York made the Top 20 cities with the most growth, according to PODs.


However, two regions in New York State, including the Hudson Valley, made the Top 10 for the highest number of move-outs, according to PODs.

"Although housing prices in Florida continue to rise, you’ll still get more bang for your buck — or space for your dollar," PODS states. "A big perk of claiming Florida residency is the lack of state income tax — a huge boon for anyone relocating from tax-heavy states such as New York or California."

Los Angeles and San Francisco were the cities with the highest number of move-outs. Chicago and Central New Jersey ranked third and fifth.
