The chances are that you know at least one person that has moved to Nevada if not many. Some say they visited and just felt that it made them feel like they were home. Others likely pointed out some differences in the economic situation in comparison with your home town. Whatever their personal reasons were for making the big move, there are many reasons that so many people are choosing this state as their home.
When it comes to the economy, this state has fared much better than most of the country. They were hit hard initially with the crashing of the housing market, but for those that did not live there at that time it is an opportunity to buy a nice home at extremely low prices. At first it seemed the employment situation would crash as well, but the opposite has been true. With an increase of the influx of seniors deciding that they wish to retire there, the employment options have expanded very rapidly.
Most areas of the country are struggling as there are more people seeking work than there are jobs available. However that is not the case for Nevada. In fact, the demand is so high that you can easily find employment before you make the big move so that you can have the security most people want before starting a new life in a new place.
In addition to the fact that their economy is booming, there is the fact that the weather is amazing. It rains only a couple days a year in most of the state and the climate is warm to hot through the entire year. This means that you can enjoy any of your favorite activities no matter what season it is. Even if you worry that you will miss winter activities there are snow covered mountains a short drive from most cities. It is the best of both worlds.
Nevada is a beautiful state and has so much to offer those that visit, but for the reasons listed above a lot of people are deciding to make it their new home. If you want a place to live where you can enjoy the weather, have a low cost of living and know that there will be employment then this is a state that you should consider.
