For a decade, high housing prices made it hard for people to stay in the state, even if they wanted to. But falling house prices and increased hiring are enticing former Californians to come home, moving company officials said.
“I think the people realize that when we move back to California, we’re never going to have interest rates or (house) prices this low,” said Linda Oakley, owner of Atlas Moving and Storage Co. in Poway, affiliated with Allied Van lines. “We want to live in California, where it’s warm and sunny and happy.”
