Ramay Winchester, director of TDTD’s Retire TN program, and partners shared Tennessee’s affordability with hundreds of potential retirees at three Ideal Living Expos in January in Long Island, New York; Chicago, Illinois and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
The Retire Tennessee program attends expos and/or advertises in all of these states. In February and March, expos will take place in New Jersey, Connecticut, Virginia and Michigan.
According to United Van Lines data, the Northeast’s outbound moving trend continues. New Jersey (66.8 percent), Connecticut (62 percent) and New York (61.5 percent) were included in the top 10 outbound states for the fourth consecutive year. Midwestern states like Illinois (65.9 percent) and Ohio (56.5 percent) saw high outbound relocation as well.
Retire TN partners are required to attend one Ideal Living Expo every year where they see the excitement from buyers learning about Tennessee’s low cost of living.
