Americans are estimated to be the planet’s favorite vote.
They voted for their own president with both hands. They also forgot to use their feet to vote for the city of hope in the United States.
In the past five years, the United States has increased 11.46 million people. Where did they go? The answer is coastal cities in the west and south, such as California, Texas, Florida, North Carolina, Washington, and Georgia. In cities where the population has continued to grow substantially, the price increase in the past two years has far exceeded the national average.
People and money are always the most important resources. Wherever people come, they bring vitality and demand.
To figure out which of these tens of thousands of people have invested in the embrace of cities, we can discover the city of opportunities in the future of the United States.
- The United States also has a “sea” tide
From 2011-2016, 88% of the entire new population in the United States finally took root in the western and southern coastal areas.
In the United States, there is a group of people who are willing to leave the Midwest, leave the northeast, cross most of the United States, desperately run toward the southern tip of the US territory of Texas, Florida, and North Carolina in the southeast and Georgia. Western California and Washington State. The net increase in population in these six states already accounts for more than half of the new population in the United States.
For the United States, a country with three sides facing the sea, coastal cities have natural geographical advantages, gather a lot of resources, and attract people from all corners of the United States to stage a nationwide migration that spans half of the United States.
According to the latest statistics from the Census Bureau, Texas has the most new population in the United States, followed by Florida with an additional population of 337,781, and California (No. 24). Million 177 people). This new demographic does not consider the impact of Hurricane Harvey, which hit the Texas Gulf Coast at the end of August.
The number of newly added residents of nearly 400,000 in Texas during 2016-2017 is very impressive, but compared with the previous year, the number has dropped. In 2015-2016, Texas increased its population by 423,957 residents, an increase of 1.6%. In 2014-2015, the new population in Texas was 49,036 people, with a growth rate of 1.8%.
These ten red circles have just been covered in most areas of the United States where it is surrounded by three sides of the sea, perfectly drawing a U-shaped curve.
In 2016, the population growth rate in the United States was an upset, hitting the lowest level since the 1930s. The population of New York State even experienced the first negative growth in ten years. However, in the last five years, the population growth of three states has still reached the one million camp:
2216,000 in Texas
California 1.573 million
1,500,000 in Florida
Florida, which is roughly the same size as New York, has increased its population in the past five years by 7 times the population increase in New York State. California, Texas, Florida, North Carolina, and Georgia have traditionally been residents of the United States to relocate and invest in popular areas. Both people and money are pouring in.
The population of Chicago is second only to the cities of New York and Los Angeles and has been drained for four consecutive years.
- These cities have become “suppliers”
The U.S. metropolis is still a population of “magnets,” but second-tier cities are catching up.
The soul of a city is people and money. Only the influx of people can continuously activate the city’s agglomeration funds. This is the law-driven orientation of capital. Where there is a demographic dividend, there is room for capital appreciation.
In the past five years, the net increase in population of more than 100,000 people has been a big city in the United States. The fact that the fertility rate in the United States is low is already a fact. Therefore, the growth of the urban population is more derived from the movement of people, which is the result of votes cast by everyone.
In the United States, “the tide of the sea”, the United States population flows from the non-coastal areas to coastal areas, and in the coastal areas have chosen core cities.
As the largest city in Texas, Houston has grown by 171,000 in the past five years, second only to New York City. The largest concentration of Chinese in Los Angeles, from 2011 to 2016, has a net increase of 150,000, and the current population is 2.303 million.
Let’s take a look at 17 cities with population growth of more than 50,000 in these years, some of which are in some US second-tier cities. Such as Austin, Dallas, Raleigh, Charlotte, Seattle, Denver, San Diego, and so on.
- The data does not speak, but the trend shows everything
Population is the demand, a golden sentence circulating in the real estate industry: short-term policy, supply and demand in the medium term, long-term look at the population. Unlike China, the U.S. real estate control is more determined by the market. For people with medium and long-term investment needs, the population is a problem that cannot be ignored.
(1) The continuous outflow of population is related to the lack of important emerging employment opportunities
There is a lack of population inflows in the Midwest and Northeast regions of the United States, alerting them to the danger of an “empty city”.
In regions where the population continues to decline, local economic development often lacks motivation.
The first bankruptcy city in the United States, Detroit, is located in Michigan. In the past five years, the population of a city in Detroit alone has been reduced by more than 30,000 people, and it has become the most serious city in the United States.
Although Illinois has the fifth largest population group in the United States, these years have become the largest US population reduction.
(2) The area where the population continues to grow is the city chosen by everyone.
These regions have attracted people from the surrounding areas and the central region, the Great Lakes, and the Northeast, and have saved a lot of labor and consumer groups.
In these regions, cities with rapid population growth in the past five years, such as New York, Houston, Los Angeles, Phoenix, San Antonio, Atlanta, Raleigh, Charlotte, and Austin, have seen a large influx of people from these cities. Demand needs a certain amount of time to digest.
For cities where Americans are willing to cross over half a country to find opportunities, there must be unique opportunities for development. Demographic data is the city that people voted for after they voted with their feet.
