The National Association of REALTORS® released a new report analyzing relocation trends during the pandemic. From March through October 2020, 8.9 million people moved according to the NAR’s analysis of USPS change-of-address data. While this sounds substantial, when comparing to the same period last year, only approximately 94,000 more people moved this year than a year ago. The biggest trend was people moving from large cities to surrounding suburbs, with those counties located closest to big cities seeing the highest relocation gains.
