Nationwide, 30.3 percent of Redfin.com users looked to move to a different metro area in October and November, according to a new report from Redfin (redfin.com), the technology-powered real estate brokerage. That’s down from a record-high 31.5% in the first quarter of 2021 but well above pre-pandemic levels.
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. Redfin.com users are showing significantly more interest in relocating than before the pandemic, when levels stood at 25% to 26%.
