So why did so many people choose the pandemic as the time to move?

Why People Moved During the Pandemic

  1. Cost. New York, Brooklyn, and Chicago were the top three city areas with large numbers of residents moving out. People choose to live in the city to be close to work, take advantage of the attractions, and immerse themselves in the city scene. During the pandemic, all of those were taken away. Renters were spending a majority of their paychecks to sit in their apartments, unable to leave except to go to get groceries. At a certain point, it no longer makes sense economically to live in the city when you can pay cheaper rent elsewhere and still work at your job.
  2. Population Density and Crowded Areas. The CDC recommended that people stay 6 feet away from one another, but inner city stores are already so crowded. Besides the high cost of the remaining in the city, people also did not want to be forced into close quarters with others during the pandemic.
  3. Government Restrictions. Because of their high populations, big cities were also met with harsh restrictions, like curfews and indoor dining bans. Rural areas became more enticing when their restrictions showed to be more lenient.
