Almost 9 million Americans have relocated since the start of the coronavirus pandemic, according to the National Association of Realtors — and more are willing to pack their bags.
Two-thirds of Americans would consider relocating if given the opportunity to work remotely indefinitely, or have already done so, according to new data from Redfin. That includes 34% of adults who have already moved to a different city or area in the last year, as well as another third who would like to move. The researchers polled 1,400 people in 32 major markets who bought or sold a home in the last 12 months, or plan to do so in the next 12 months.
As the data shows, though, there’s a caveat: Most Americans who are willing to move or who have moved already still want to stay relatively close to home.
