In the Metro Movers Report, Trulia analyzed nearly 100 million property searches on its site from July 1 through Sept. 30, tallying the location of users and where they were looking for homes. Trulia ranked the Metropolitan Statistical Areas and Metropolitan Divisions with the most potential for growth in housing demand. It compared the highest number of searches from non-locals looking to move to these areas versus the number of locals looking to leave. An index ranking of '1' means the number of out-of-towners searching to move there is equal to the number of locals searching to leave. A '2' on the index means the number of people searching to come is double the number searching to leave. The higher the number, the more people showing interest from other places.
