According to a new report by Redfin, 27 percent of prospective homebuyers say they are looking to move out of their current metro area. New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco all saw a net outflow of homeowners in April and May.

Certainly, the pandemic and work-from-home opportunities are primary factors as well as the high cost of living in many coastal cities.

Analysts point out that the trend out of expensive metro areas had already started before the arrival of COVID-19 but current conditions have accelerated the trend.
