Portland still among the country’s top moving destinations

Popular moving app Updater recently announced its annual ranking of the top 15 cities Americans moved to in 2018.

According to Jenna Weinerman, Head of Marketing, “We’re a decade past the housing market collapse of 2008 and the financial troubles that followed. Today, however, we’re facing affordability troubles… That dynamic has led to more Americans moving back to the major suburbs of the cities on our list.”
