DeconJ, seriously, I mean seriously. Don't call my place empty and dying, and people are leaving because it is miserable.

New Mexico might be the best kept secret here. Their growth rate is slower (ranked 18th) in comparison to other Sun Belt states. And the economy here is, from what I gather, way better than the national average.

Oh, did I mention your name or location? Let me check...no, I did not. Why are you so sensitive?

I do agree with you ...people are leaving because it's miserable.

The Northeast has already had its "boom day," so it's the South and West that's catching up. Someday the growth in the Sunbelt will also level off and the region will stabilize.

There was a Heritage Foundation [I think] study earlier this year, stating that the new boom would be in the Inter-Mountain West, in 5 separate corridors. The corridors were in NM, CO, UT, AZ and NV. I'd provide the link but I couldn't locate it.

Yeah, I could see that happening. In fact, I think it already has started.

The big thing in those states and fast growth is of course, access to water. That will slow the growth down, if anything.

Yeah, my crystal ball told me the same thing...it's a good thing we can predict the future.

Ayo DeaconJ, is something bothering you? You sorta seem agitated about something. The North and Midwest had their boom and the Sunbelt will get theirs but that will slow down because it'll get crowded and expensive in the future (smart prediction).

I don't get it. Aren't those states already booming; and haven't they been for some time?

Yeah they have for the past 20 years and still are. In fact here's the latest census analysis, UTAH, ARIZONA and TEXAS are the top 3 with NORTH CAROLINA and COLORADO right behind. Last time I checked Arizona and Texas fell in the Sunbelt, Likewise Colorado and Utah are right next door with a strength in tourism, construction and 2nd homes the industry in both states generally lag behind a year so of the sunbelt states.

Utah is fastest growing state, Census Bureau says - CNN.com
