Most:

Atlanta
Charlotte
Raleigh
Charleston
Savannah
Greenville, SC
Nashville
Myrtle Beach/Grand Strand
Dallas/Ft. Worth (if you consider this the South)
Every city in Florida

Least:

Memphis
Birmingham
Montgomery
Jackson, MS
Macon, GA
Any city in Arkansas

Cities like Knoxville, Columbia, and Wilmington probably fall somewhere in the middle.

Those are my guesses.

I don't think Jacksonville FL is that transplant saturated. It isn't like Orlando, Tampa, and especially South Florida. I could be wrong.

Greenville actually falls somewhere in the middle; healthy transplant growth but not overrun by them. And I believe NW Arkansas is seeing health transplant growth also.

It is somewhat, mainly by retirees as in the rest of FL. Not as much as its in-state counterparts, but certainly more than its Southern peers like Richmond, Memphis, Birmingham, New Orleans, etc.

Northern Virginia (if you consider this the South) and the Hampton Roads might fall into the "most" category. Richmond is either "most" or possibly in the middle.

The NC Triad (Greensboro, Winston-Salem) could also fall in the middle.

Richmond and B-More in the same category as B-Ham, Augusta, Macon and Montgomery, Baltimore and Richmond were probably amongst the first southern cities to get a lot of transplants

It is interesting (and good) that Richmond isn't viewed as transplant saturated...because it is extremely (more so than many southern cities) transplant saturated. Norfolk, Charlottesville and Alexandria too. And Baltimore (are you kidding me?)!

It's interesting that people tend to think that Greenville is in a different category than Columbia when it comes to transplants when Columbia grew 5% faster in the previous decade and is growing a bit faster now and as a general rule, the faster the growth rate, the more transplants you have, particularly in the Sunbelt. Greenville does get a bit more international immigration though.

Memphis belongs in the "least" category, without a doubt
