More Americans are planning to move this year due to the flexible work from home lifestyle that the Covid-19 pandemic has ushered in, market researcher The NPD Group said in a blog post.
Nearly 20% of people in the U.S. were working from home full time as of December and 28% of Americans overall have considered relocating during the pandemic, NPD said. In addition, 20% more consumers are planning to move this year compared to last.
As people get more comfortable with the ability to work from anywhere, they are realizing they have the ability to live in an area with a lower cost of living or that is closer to family, NPD said.
The group’s comments come as winter winds down and the peak months for moving, May through September, draw nearer.
