Homebuyer interest in relocating to a different part of the country accelerated as the coronavirus pandemic took hold in the first half of 2020 and reached its peak at the beginning of this year before declining slightly and leveling out. Now, homebuyers are showing significantly more interest in relocating than before the pandemic, when levels stood at 25% to 26%. 

Nationwide, 30.3% of Redfin.com users looked to move to a different metro area in October and November, according to a new report. That’s down from a record-high 31.5% in the first quarter of 2021 but well above pre-pandemic levels. 

“At the beginning of the pandemic, remote work gave homebuyers the opportunity to consider a new location,” said Redfin Chief Economist Daryl Fairweather. “Now the labor market is incredibly tight, which means even homebuyers with in-person occupations can move somewhere new and be confident they can secure employment in their new town.”

The oppressive new restrictions being put in place in Chicago, New York, and Boston are likely a major factor for the migration from blue states to red.

Influx of homebuyers into South Florida continues 

South Florida was the most popular migration destination for the fourth month in a row. Next come Phoenix, Las Vegas, Sacramento and Tampa. Two other Florida metros also appear on the top 10, with Cape Coral taking the number seven spot and North Port coming in 10th. The popularity of migration destinations is determined by net inflow, a measure of how many more Redfin.com home searchers looked to move into a metro than leave. 

Florida has become a particularly popular destination this year as remote workers and retirees flock to the state in search of freedom from COVID restrictions, beaches, warm weather, low taxes and more affordable housing than big cities on the East Coast or West Coast. Net inflow into Miami has nearly tripled since this time last year, and net inflow into Tampa has nearly doubled, with New York as the number-one origin for people moving to those areas.

“More than half of my active clients are either investors or people who are relocating, coming from places like California, Oregon, New York and New Jersey,” said Miami Redfin agent Cristina Llanos. “The relocators tend to be young remote workers who are moving to Miami for the affordability and sunshine. One client said they’re coming to Miami because they hate the snow; another wants to raise their kids in an ethnically diverse city.”

Homebuyers are leaving big cities like San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York 

San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Washington, D.C. and Seattle top the list of places Redfin.com users looked to leave in October and November. That’s according to net outflow, a measure of how many more Redfin.com home searchers looked to leave a metro than move in. 

Big, authoritarian, expensive coastal cities typically top the list of places poeple are looking to leave, a trend that has accelerated with the pandemic and remote-work options. Many big-city dwellers with white-collar jobs are able to work remotely from more affordable locations with a lot of recreational opportunities.

If the Democrats are unhappy with the 2020 census results, the 2030 census (just 8 years away) are going to be much, much worse.

      I also noticed this trend. But it is worth noting that it is very difficult to competently organize the move. Although there are many companies that specialize in moving, among all of them it is worth noting these miami movers https://www.themiamimovers.com/ . Even the most difficult move will be easy and stress-free if you choose Miami Movers. From planning and packing to loading and transport
