Moving to Nevada for work was the primary reason people moved to the state — with 46 percent of those surveyed citing Job. Retirement, at 29 percent, was the 2nd most given reason.

Job and Retirement were the top two reasons given in the 2017 Movers Study, as well — coming in at 36 percent and 34 percent, respectively. [See last year’s Why are people moving to Nevada]

The age range with the greatest percentage of inbound movers was 55 – 64-years-old — responsible for more than 30 percent of those surveyed. 65-years-old and older was 2nd with 26 percent.

Regarding the Income demographic, 40 percent of those moving to Nevada reported incomes of $150,000, or more. Those high income levels are likely what is fueling the growth of our market’s luxury home segment [See Reno-Sparks luxury home prices skyrocket in 2018]
