As U.S. Cities Crumble, Demand For Rural And Suburban Properties Is Soaring

As U.S. Cities Crumble, Demand For Rural And Suburban Properties Is Soaring

Quote:
Prices for rural and suburban homes are being pushed up as an increasing number of Americans seek to get away from the major cities.

At first, it was the coronavirus pandemic that was the primary reason why so many people wanted to move. According to Redfin, page views for homes in rural communities and small towns were way, way up in March as the virus began to spread aggressively in the United States…

Yup. Over the past few years I have had my fill of living in town. Been planing to move to the country in a year or two. Building equity in my home, wife is getting her car paid off, I am unloading iron as fast as I can list it & we are both saving.

Then this crap happens.

Hopefully I can find a place far enough off the beaten path city slickers won't be interested.

Good thing is I can live about anywhere, thankfully. A long commute doesn't matter when you only drive to work once a month.

Edit: Maybe I'll get lucky & fetch a premium for my home. Until you live here it seems great, looks like Mayberry. 1300 people, quiet minnonite town... until you realize your new neighbors have nothing better to do than put their nose in your business & the cops are 100% statist jackboot thugs just waiting for their moment to shine. Can't even buy a six rack after work.

When the mob wants blood will it be an easier target out in the country or in the hood? For my bet I chose the hood as neighbors have a common bond, people who stand on their own two feet yet live with neighbors.

Anyone that moves out to the sticks better take a lot with them for larder and learn to sleep light.
