Back to the Burbs? Some Chicagoans Are Looking!
The impact of Covid-19 is far reaching. It’s not only ruined lives, businesses and the economy, it also has many city dwellers rethinking their attitude about the suburbs.
In fact, almost 40% of adults living in urban areas are considering moving “out of populated areas and toward rural areas,” according to a recent Harris Poll, with 43% having actively browsed for homes or apartments outside the city online.
Even before the pandemic hit, there already was a slow trickle of city folks moving away to the burbs. That includes Chicago, which has lost residents for the fourth year in a row.
Joel Kotkin, a fellow in urban futures at Chapman University, says, “What I believe is that the coronavirus will accelerate this trend, because when you go to the roots of these pandemics, a lot of it is very, very dense urbanization.”
Hmm.. the burbs are looking mighty good these days!
