More residents are moving out of Chicago and looking to build a new home in the suburbs. Others are purchasing homes and remodeling the kitchen, basement, and office space. Albrite Building is a new home builder and remodeling company located in the western suburbs.
As working remotely continues for many businesses, city folks are weighing the risks of being in densely populated areas. Spending extra time at home and wanting more indoor and outdoor space is certainly sparking interest among city folks. Data shows a trend of moving to the suburbs. According to Zillow, there is a current surge in the larger cities’ high-end listings in some larger metro areas. The increase in these homes going on the market indicates more homeowners may be ready to make a move out of the city, particularly at the upper end of the market.
Why are People Moving to the Suburbs?
With the ongoing pandemic, it’s no surprise that many people are starting to consider a shift from the city to the suburbs. A survey from HomeLight listed the top reasons people are actually moving.
1. More space indoors
2. Desire to own
3. Move from city to suburbs
4. More outdoor space (backyard, deck, pool, sauna)
More space, fewer people, and more affordable prices are highly desirable features in this new era, so the list makes sense.
The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) stated, “New home demand is improving in lower density markets, including small metro areas, rural markets, and large metro exurbs, as people seek out larger homes and anticipate more flexibility for telework in the years ahead. Flight to the suburbs is real.”
