Because Nashville is trendy. Remember when everyone was moving to Asheville? Portland? Cities boom, become super expensive, and then within 5 years people move on to the next hot city.

here a look at the % change in College graduate between 2000-2012

When young college graduates decide where to move, they are not just looking at the usual suspects, like New York, Washington and San Francisco. Other cities are increasing their share of these valuable residents at an even higher rate and have reached a high overall percentage, led by Denver, San Diego, Nashville, Salt Lake City and Portland, Ore., according to a report published Monday by City Observatory, a new think tank.

And as young people continue to spurn the suburbs for urban living, more of them are moving to the very heart of cities ó even in economically troubled places like Buffalo and Cleveland. The number of college-educated people age 25 to 34 living within three miles of city centers has surged, up 37 percent since 2000, even as the total population of these neighborhoods has slightly shrunk.

Some cities are attracting young talent while their overall population falls, like Pittsburgh and New Orleans. And in a reversal, others that used to be magnets, like Atlanta and Charlotte, are struggling to attract them at the same rate.


Percent change in the number of college graduates aged 25 to 34, from 2000 to 2012


Houston 50%
Nashville 48%
Denver 47%
Austin 44%
Portland 37%
Washington 36%
Buffalo 34%
Baltimore 32%
Los Angeles 30%
Pittsburgh 29%
St. Louis 26%
New York 25%

Top 51 metro areas, average 25%

Minneapolis 21%
Chicago 17%
Boston 12%
San Francisco 11%
Memphis 10%
Providence 6%
Atlanta 3%
Cleveland 1%
Detroit -10%

and one more according to Credible.

Key Takeaways:

While affordability might be one reason cities attract out-of-state graduates, a lack of affordability does not appear to be an issue preventing job centers like San Francisco, Seattle, Dallas, and Washington D.C. from attracting out-of-state grads.

However, affordability becomes more of an issue in recruiting out-of-state grads if they have large amounts of student loan debt.

College graduates who arenít immediately looking to buy a home, or are satisfied with renting, may have fewer reservations about moving to cities like Washington D.C., San Francisco and Dallas, where homes are more expensive.


The nine cities where out-of-state graduates outnumbered in-state grads were:

1.Washington D.C. (2.20 out-of-state graduates for every in-state graduate),
2.Charlotte (2.17)
3.Denver (1.92 )
4.Portland (1.48)
5.Seattle (1.35)
6.San Francisco (1.22)
7.Oakland (1.19)
8.New York City (1.06)
9.Dallas (1.03)

Do international students count as out of state? If so, Charlotte is really easy.
Been to one of the engineering school graduation, 95 percent of the students were Indian and all from the same province!

Asheville is a hot mostly as a tourist economy. Nashville's economy may not be what the boosters crack it up as, but it's a far cut above Asheville.

Nashville is growing too fast I hope we do not become Austin TX.
