I love stats, especially ones projecting good news.

According to an annual report based on "80,289 Interstate and Cross-Border Household Goods Relocations from January 1, 2011 through December 31, 2011 by Atlas," Michigan "Migration" is balanced.

What does that mean exactly? For the first time in 6 years, the inbound and outbound is 55% or less of total shipments.

In plain english: the amount of people moving out of Michigan is roughly the same as those moving in.  This has not been the case since 2004.  Now that should put a smile on your face!

Add these findings to a recent article  I posted in late October about Detroit being the predicted leader in the nation for travel in 2012 by TravelClick, this should make the Michigan real estate and hotel industries feel very warm and fuzzy.  Well all of us for that matter :).
