SOME Denver residents, looking to make a move, are looking to move in-state, to areas with less expensive housing costs than Denver.

That's according to a new report from online real estate company Redfin, which analyzed homebuyer migration patterns from around the country.

Denver residents are looking mostly to moving to Colorado Springs (the choice of 11 percent of Denver leavers) and Fort Collins (10.6 percent), followed by Chicago (7 percent), Los Angeles (6 percent) and Phoenix (5.5 percent).

In August, Denver residents looked at Chicago more than anywhere else, including in-state cities, as a preferred destination.

On the other side, regarding people thinking of moving to Denver, the housing-expensive Bay Area was the top inflow origin (14.9 percent), followed by Los Angeles (12.7 percent) and Chicago (8.2 percent).

To come up with its report, Redfin said it "analyzed a sample of more than 1 million users searching for homes across 75 metro areas from October through December," according to the Denver Business Journal.
