Home shoppers’ interest in relocating to a different state is on the rise, finds a new survey from realtor.com®. During the first quarter, 40.5% of prospective buyers searching for homes for sale on realtor.com® were looking for homes outside of their current state.
“After two years of pandemic remote work, offices have started to reopen, but instead of seeing a slowdown in the number of people interested in homes out of state, we’re seeing an acceleration,” says Danielle Hale, realtor.com®’s chief economist. “Taking a closer look at the top destinations, we see some very different trends driving the desire to live out of state and home shoppers’ diverse needs.”
Affordability remains a key focus for buyers, Hale says. Demand for less expensive areas has increased in recent months due to high inflation and rising mortgage rates. Also, the flexibility from the higher adoption of remote work is fueling greater interest in sunnier climates like the Sun Belt, Hale says. Some buyers also are showing renewed interest in living downtown. Two major metros made realtor.com®’s list of top destinations for out-of-state home shoppers.
The following are the top 10 relocation destinations, according to realtor.com®.
