It has been reported, 28,000 Californians moved to Colorado last year (2019). From what Dee and I have seen in 2020, We are betting it will be even more this year. Although people migrate to Colorado from all states, Californians are becoming #1. Something like this happened in the 1970s in search of John Denver and Coors Light.
Why are these moves taking place? Here is just one story recently written on the subject.
“More people are leaving California than ever before, driven out by worsening wildfires, politics and the skyrocketing cost of living.
More people are leaving California than arriving, driven out by worsening wildfires, power outages and the skyrocketing cost of living.
In 2018 more than 86,000 people left California for Texas, nearly 70,000 left for Arizona and about 55,000 left for Washington.
Between 2007 and 2016, some 5 million residents moved to California and 6million people moved out to other states.
According to a poll locals say they consider leaving due to the high cost of housing, heavy taxation, or political culture.
Today more than two dozen fires are blazing, ripping through a record 3.1 million acres of land and killing 22 people, the worse inferno in the state’s history.”
