West Virginia made the number 3 most popular place to move to in 2021. I told you that it was a popular state. It has beautiful scenery and mountains. It's also 98% white which is why a lot of people are moving there just like Idaho. But unlike Idaho property is still cheap. Tim Pool moved there he has a farm now. I can have property in my name in other states just not Ohio. Anyway keep it in mind.
Inbound moves: 63%
Those country roads are taking plenty of Americans into West Virginia — the state jumped up eight spots to make it to third place for inbound moves in 2021.
Close to half of those entering the Mountain State cited jobs as their main motivator, but a whopping 72% said they exited the state for the same reason.
West Virginia grapples with one of the worst poverty rates in the country, particularly with the decline of its coal industry.
However, Redditor OMothmanWhereArtThou says, “The cost of living in West Virginia is really low and it has so much natural beauty. If you're an outdoorsy person, you can find a lot to get into. If you're a fan of living near very few people, that can be easily achieved in WV.”
