Poll: COVID-19 Is Making People Rethink Living in Big Cities
A new poll shows more people are considering moving to rural areas from larger cities due to the pandemic.
“I do know there are some folks in NYC who seem to be flocking towards the country, which is understandable since it’s such a densely populated area,” Boulder-area REALTOR Kelly Moye told Fox 31.
“Here what we’re really seeing more of is people who want to move closer to their family members,” Moye said. “I’ve received lots of calls from people wanting to list their homes and when I asked why, it’s because their mom or dad lived in a different part of the state or outside of the state. And during this whole situation, they realized the importance of living close to them and helping them and being there for them.”
“I think people working from home and living in more affordable places instead of, let’s say downtown, I absolutely think we’re going to see more of in the future,” Moye said.
