Why are people moving from California to Arizona?
If you’ve decided to trade life in the Golden State for life in the Grand Canyon State, you’ll enjoy the benefits that come with this long-distance relocation. Besides trading in the smog-filled skies of many California cities for stretches of clear blue skies over a primarily desert environment, Arizona beats out California in the following 4 areas:
- Cost of living – a $50,000 salary in Arizona is equivalent to earning $100,000 in San Diego and the other large cities in California. This is attributed to the lower cost of groceries, healthcare, housing, transportation, and utilities in Arizona.
- Job growth – Arizona ranks #3 overall in job growth in the US with a rate that is double the national average. Conversely, San Diego ranks 16th.
- Natural disasters – from one end of the state to the other, California is a magnet for earthquakes and wildfires. Since 1953, Arizona has recorded only 3 natural disasters whereas California has had over 50 during that same time.
- Traffic – when it comes to long commutes and traffic congestion, San Diego ranks 17th on the list of most congested urban areas. Phoenix ranks 47th. So if you’re dreaming of living close to your job, Arizona is the place to be.
If you can tolerate a few months of dry heat, the lower cost of living along with natural beauty and shorter commutes, then moving from San Diego to Arizona will be the ideal relocation for you.
