Moving Stats Don’t Support Urban Exodus

Many experts have predicted an urban exodus as a result of the pandemic, but so far the data doesn’t support that theory. According to the latest research from Apartment List, the opposite is actually true. When comparing pre- and post-pandemic migration patterns, there has been an increase in moves to dense urban markets. In Los Angeles, users looking to move to the metro increased from 16.6% before the pandemic to 18.4% during the pandemic. In addition, fewer users were looking to relocate outside of the metro.
