Nearly 25% of US Homebuyers Want To Move To Florida
More people are looking to relocate from big cities to Sun Belt states where homes are cheaper — particularly a move to Florida.
Escalating housing costs squeeze out buyers in many cities in the US.
According to Redfin.com’s most recent data, nearly 25% of the property search queries online are for cities where the person doesn’t live.
That’s up roughly 10% from five years ago.
Out of 100 metro areas examined during the three months that ended in October – the following 10 cities had the highest net inflow of property searches on Redfin’s website.
Net inflow is the number of people looking to move into a city minus the number of people looking to leave.
Sacramento, California: 7,800
Las Vegas: 7,100
San Diego: 6,500
Tampa, Florida: 5,600
Cape Coral, Florida: 4,600
North Port-Sarasota, Florida: 4,300
Orlando, Florida: 3,700
The most popular relocation choices are in Sun Belt states in the Southwest and Southeast, with half of the move to Florida.
And the majority of those looking to relocate are from large cities, especially San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York, Washington, D.C., and Boston.
The following cities had the largest outflow of property searches, according to Redfin’s data:
San Francisco: 35,800
Los Angeles: 34,100
New York: 22,400
Washington, D.C.: 18,100
The study says buyers choose Sun Belt metros to avoid rising housing costs largely because homes are cheaper than they’d find in the largest U.S. cities.
For instance, a typical home in Las Vegas costs around $410,000, roughly half of what it would cost in LA.
To measure the share of homebuyers looking to relocate from one metro to another, a person browsing Redfin for properties in another city counts as a migrant.
Migrants are given a weighted score based on the share of properties searched in a city where they don’t live.
The net inflow rankings were compiled based on the total number of migrants.
