Coronavirus is making many city families reconsider where they call “home.”
With the bulk of the workforce going remote — and families looking to get out of major cities on the heels of COVID-19 shutdowns — many people are considering the suburbs. Whether they wanted to move some day or never considered the ‘burbs, the appeal is undeniable.
“People are scared, and it’s not something that is going to be swept under the rug,” Suburban Jungle Founder & President Alison Bernstein tells CNN. “And I think people are going to really re-evaluate the quality of life that they’re looking for. So I think we’re going to see a big migration into lifestyle-rich cities like Nashville, Austin, South Florida.”
One of those city dwellers is Suburban Jungle client and Upper East Side mom of three Chloe Jo Davis. Feeling like they’ve “been through a monsoon every day,” she tells CNN, the family of five and their four rescue pets are searching the suburbs with an eye on more space. And they aren’t alone. Even with the COVID-19 hurdles, many people are still searching suburbia and, even, making offers and making moves.
