How Remote Work May Impact Housing Location Preferences
A new report from Apartment List says remote workers moved more than on-site workers over the past year, but most moves were local. In addition they found that “more space” was the top motivator for pandemic moves, regardless of remote work status. They found their data from a recent survey of 5k employed adults across the country. Interestingly they say an unprecedented change in how workplaces are organized is weakening the link between job choice and housing choice, and they point out that remote workers are already taking advantage of this newfound freedom to move at higher rates. Indeed…
“Our survey data also validates our earlier hypothesis that “untethered workers” — remote workers who are also not tied down by homeownership or family obligations — will represent the leading edge of remote work related migration trends. 23 percent of the untethered workers in our survey moved over the past year and 55 percent plan to move in the coming year, both well above the shares for remote workers overall.”
